Bekim Balaj has closed his season in Russia with a goal scored during Terek Grozny's 3-1 victory, but the Albanian striker had no motive to enjoy this success because his future in Russia is still uncertain.
He has been spending long periods of time sitting on the Grozny’s bench during the 2nd half of the championship, although in the first stage he was the main striker scoring 8 goals.
In the second stage, Balaj's contribution was not the same and after a series of negative performances of Grozny, he along with two other Albanians, Roshi and Berisha, ended up in the reserves bench.
Even in the match against Krylya Sovetov the Albanian footballer remained initially in the bench and was activated only in the 73rd minute.
Only 3 minutes after entering the field, the Albanian striker sent the ball to the net, contributing in the 3-1 victory of his team.
This was the 9th goal of the Albanian striker in the Russian championship that closed the season in fifth place of the top goal-scorers ranking.
