BATE Borisov let a historic win slip away on Tuesday as Juventus came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw in Champions League Group H play in Belarus.
The hosts took a stunning lead in the 17th minute when Sergei Kryvets bagged BATE’s first Champions League goal with a nice finish after beating Juve goalkeeper Alexander Manninger.
Even more stunning was BATE going two up just six minutes later as Igor Stasevich, who set up the opener, headed home a Pavel Nekhaychik cross.
Juve then came to life with Vincenzo Iaquinta pulling a goal back for the Italians on 29 minutes with a header off Sebastian Giovinco’s cross, and the striker levelled matters just before the first-half whistle when he slid the ball between the legs of BATE goalkeeper Sergei Veremko.
