Watch the Sūduva v Banga highlights as the Lithuanian A Lyga clash was inexplicably played in full on a completely waterlogged pitch.
Despite numerous pools of surface water and the ball not rolling very far at all, the match officials saw no reason the game could not continue.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO
Taking place at FK Sūduva Marijampolė’s 6,200 capacity Sūduva stadium in the Lithuanian industrial city of Marijampolė on Sunday, the highlights clip makes for an interesting watch as the players are slipping and sliding all over the place.
You can see slides through the mud, a couple of soggy goals and all in all a calamitous way of playing the game.
FK Banga Gargždai lost the soggy match 2-0 but will probably just be glad to get home in one piece.
The result leaves UEFA Europa League contenders Sūduva in 3rd place on 59 points, while recently promoted Banga from the city of Gargždai lie in 6th with 33 points.
