Bottom-two will go head to head in the UEFA Euro qualifiers Group C match when Belarus play Estonia at Stadyen Dynama, on Thursday night.
Having lost all the five games leading upto this match, Estonia are currently propping up the table while Belarus are above them and on the fourth position, separated by three points they registered in the last game.
With the top two teams getting an automatic berth in the Euro 2020 tournament, and third best-placed teams entering the playoffs, time and the games are the luxury both Belarus and Estonia can’t afford in the remaining games.
The European Qualifiers match will be played between Belarus and Estonia at Stadyen Dynama, in Minsk, Belarus. The ground has a capacity of 22,000.
The game will start at 09:30 PM (IST), on Thursday, October 10.
