Highlights: Conference League: Match interrupted because visiting fans threw snowballs at home goalkeeper. It was in the draw between HJK of Finland and Aberdeen FC of Scotland. The match was suspended for several minutes and the stoppage time was 16 minutes. In Finland, temperatures are low for most of the year, but in winter the weather is much colder. The game was played under a wind chill of -3 degrees Celsius; therefore, snow is present in this area. It is annoying and detrimental to maintaining fair play and the footballer's vision.

Matchday 5 of the Conference League featured the great match between the Finnish team HJK and the Scottish Aberdeen FC, belonging to Group G of that competition, not only because of the result (2-2), but also because the continuity of the match was kept in suspense due to an unusual event.

In a video filmed by a journalist who was at the Bolt Arena, fans of the visiting club are seen throwing snowballs at the home goalkeeper. While at first glance it doesn't seem dangerous, it is annoying and detrimental to maintaining fair play and the footballer's vision.

Back then, the Scottish team was down 2-1.

In Finland, temperatures are low for most of the year, but in winter the weather is much colder. The match was played under a wind chill of -3 degrees Celsius; therefore, snow is present in this area.

The referee paused the match for several minutes, which puts both teams at a disadvantage in terms of rapid physical cooling. The fans spent a long time throwing the snow at the goalkeeper, who was constantly complaining. Then, with the time already up, 16 more minutes were added.
