Competitive football returned this week as I attended Linfield v BATE Borisov in the 2nd Round of the Champions League at Windsor Park.
As is now tradition, Linfield were paired with the top seeded team, a side who have beaten Everton and draw with Juventus in recent years, reaching the Last 32 of the UEFA Cup last season.
Linfield more than held their own, and could be disappointed not to win. Conceding an away goal and not having a lead makes it hard in Belarus, but not impossible.
Had mixed results with my phototaking as i’m still getting used to my new camera at football matches.
Tonight, I headed to Seaview to try and get a last minute ticket at a “Buyer’s Market Price” to no avail, although I did manage to get some photos of the stadium.
