Prague – Slavia footballers won the 9th league round over Hradec Králové 4: 1. The defending champion decided the match with another newcomer to the highest competition in the opening act, when they hit Jan Kuchta and Daniel Samek. In the 50th minute, Kuchta scored for the second time and Ibrahim Traoré prevailed in the 59th minute. Jiří Kateřiňák was given a chance to change things around.
The Slavists stretched a record series without league defeats to 54 matches and remained one team of the highest competition this season, which has not yet lost. “Červenobílí” have a well-postponed duel with Olomouc and from the second place in the table they lose two points to the leader Pilsen. Hradec did not score after three league victories in a row and is seventh.
The Slavists started actively as the leading goal helped them by the big mistake of goalkeeper Fendrich. The Královéhradecký goalkeeper did not keep the easy center from the right side from Ševčík and Kuchta comfortably knocked the ball into the net. The home keeper was stunned 21 minutes into the match when he misjudged the free kick by Stanciu and dived in the wrong direction.
Hradec is trying to play in the open part of Eden and especially in the passage after 30 minutes he was dangerous. Soukeník had the biggest chance, whose shot was fired by Mandous. Five minutes before the break, the people of Prague raised. After the combination action, Ševčík tapped Samko in front of the lime, and he defeated Fendrich with a ground shot with the help of a stick. The 17-year-old scored the third league goal.
Vízek replaced Fendrich in the second half in the Hradec Králové goal, who jumped into his premiere in the highest competition. He kept a clean sheet for less than five minutes before being overtaken by Kuchta after Carnival’s pass. The Slavic striker scored his fifth goal in the league season and loses one goal to the top of the gunners’ table.
Kuchta could then complete his second hat-trick in the highest competition, but was caught by Vízek. In the 59th minute, the Slavists added another goal. The substitute Traoré was only on the lawn for a few seconds before he knocked his head into the net with the first touch of the ball on the back post.
Hradec did not even score in the 63rd minute, when Novotný hit Mandouse from an angle. On the other side, Kízt struck again against Kucht. The Eastern Czechs, on the other hand, scored in Eden when, in the 90th minute, he brought Kateřiňák’s shot from behind the lime out of the reach of Mandous, defending Tecl. The visiting midfielder scored in the highest competition for the first time. Slavia also scored points in the 15th home league match with Hradec.
Votes after the match:
Jindřich Trpišovský (coach of Slavia): “Hradec is currently in very good shape, it has won five competitive matches in a row and has not collected. We knew we had a lot of work to do, which was evident until we scored. The goalkeeper’s mistake and a quick goal helped us and then we played very well. But we lost our chances and Hradec improved over time. We got a little worse, but then we managed to score 2: 0 in the locker room. We managed to enter the second half, either in terms of goals or games. The match broke after the fourth goal and we finished terribly in the last 20 minutes.
Miroslav Koubek (coach of Hradec): “It was a match that the spectators could enjoy. Five goals, a lot of final situations, also from our points of view. The match did not go well for us, we collected an unfortunate goal. For us at that moment, a blow to the head, for opponents, calming down and placing on horses. Slavia have nothing until then. Slavia’s huge attacking quality caused them to create more chances. But we had counterattacks and we could get to the desired goal at 1: 1. If we were to have any hope, we should have scored a goal in this. Samka’s second goal then put it in a negative light for us and it was 2: 0 in the half. Slavia was dominant and finished the match. Everyone sees that the newcomer is playing with Europe, the difference was obvious. We didn’t make an embarrassing impression, but we made too many mistakes in defense. “
