A UEFA Cup match between Banants (Armenia) and Dnipro (Ukraine) at the Vazgen Sargsyan (Republican) Stadium in Yerevan, Armenia. Dnipro won the game 4-2. The stadium was packed with fans of Banants as well as non-fans who were cheering for the Armenian side. Contrary to the Mika (Armenia) vs. Mainz (Germany) match, which had a rather visible presence on the part of the Mainz fans, there were very few Ukrainian fans in the stadium (I only saw one, who was sitting in the same section as I, and waving a tiny Ukrainian flag).
