Scandal with anti-Albanian calls in Bosnia, Egnatia wins amid tension and receives two red cards

Egnatia was defeated in its first match in the Champions League, as it recorded a transfer defeat against Borac Banja Luka in Bosnia. But it was a very strange loss experienced between the tension of the anti-Albanian calls and the two red cards that were given to the Rogozhina players.

From the beginning, the local fans unfurled slogans with the text "Kosovo is the heart of Serbia": and did not spare the nationalist calls. But on the playing field, Egnatia did not feel this pressure, thinking how to keep its goal intact.

The situation heated up in the second half, especially after Zejnullai was punished with a red card for a foul after the images that the referee saw with VAR. The local fans started to add anti-Albanian chants in the stadium and this led to the interruption of the match, which resumed after 10 minutes only with the "ultimatum" that there would be abandonment of it.

Egnatia struggled to resist and seemed to be succeeding. But in the overtime of the meeting, a carelessness brought the advantage goal of the locals, who tried hard to score the second one as well. Ndreca was then punished with the second red card of this match, causing the Rogozhina team to end the match with difficulty, but with a result that still leaves the possibility of qualification open.
