Is this the most water-logged game of football ever?

Published Add your comment

In a recent game between Benfica and Olympiakos in the Champions League, it rained. A lot.

Some called the game farcical, but not the referee, who saw no problems with Olympiakos being denied a goal because their striker striker's shot could beat the 'keeper and the defender, but not the huge puddle on the line.

Well he turns out that referee was Right. Because, in true knifey-spoony style, that wasn't a water-logged pitch - this, is a water-logged pitch.

This game in Lithuania between Suduva and Banga was reduced to a water-logged laughing stock when the heavens opened.

Despite the quite obvious dangerous conditions, the match continued and Banga came through with a 2-0 win.  Presumably they didn't need a shower afterwards.
