After the game with BATE, several employees and footballers of Sputnik felt unwell, with symptoms similar to coronavirus. They sent people for tests, which showed positive results. This was confirmed by Sputnik spokesman Anatoly Kapolygin. At the moment, about 20 people from the administrative and coaching staff and the main team are ill. Fifteen of them are with positive tests, the rest have symptoms. They asked ABFF to postpone the match, but they refused because before two weeks Sputnik refused to vaccinate the team. They already booked a hotel and everything is ready for the trip to Grodno, but the only question is who to go. From the main team, several people were injured, now there is a lot of positive players on Covid 19. Also, there was information that the club has financial problems – debts to the Federal Social Welfare Fund, and the players are not paid their salaries.
All in all, this should be a one-sided match, where I expect an easy home win with a lot of goals.
