Brno is waiting for another battle with Sparta, Pilsen will challenge Hradec Králové

Prague – The hockey players of Brno will welcome the extra-league leader Sparta in their arena again after ten days. The next five Friday’s matches of the 38th round also offer interesting fights. The fifth Pilsen, which has scored a single point in the last four matches, awaits a duel with the sixth Hradec Králové. The third Mladá Boleslav has the opportunity to cut from a four-point deficit to the second Třinec.

After a successful period of scoring seven times in a row and winning six times, the comet has scored a single point out of six in the past two matches. On Tuesday, the people of Brno lost 1: 2 in overtime in Olomouc. “We had a chance, but I wish luck to those who do more for it. We didn’t talk about it with our performance,” remarked the assistant coach Jan Zachrla critically.

Sparta scored seven times in a row, scoring five victories. He is now looking forward to the opportunity to settle with Kometa for the recent 3: 4 defeat in overtime. “We didn’t play a bad match there, but we could turn more power games. We also have to avoid unnecessary exclusions, which cost us a lot of energy. We played in Brno relatively recently, I believe we will succeed this time,” said forward Robert Říčka.

Pilsen did not use the opportunity to interrupt a series of defeats when it lost 0: 2 on the ice of the penultimate Zlín. “We somehow lacked everything, from calm on hockey sticks to better-matched power-ups. “We have to think. I am extremely dissatisfied,” admitted coach Ladislav Čihák.

On January 12, Hradec Králové rejoiced after winning 4: 1 in Pilsen. Even thanks to the last two wins, the East Czechs caught up with the Indians in points. “We are glad that we managed to win twice in a row and confirm the previous success in Brno. We still want to continue to increase the number of winnings and not alternate winnings with defeats. We want to four, so we have to fight with teams that also strive for it. I believe that if we show our game in Pilsen and stick to tactics, we have a chance to succeed there again, “said striker Jakub Lev.

In the last three matches, Mladá Boleslav tried all three possibilities of close defeats. The Central Europeans lost by a goal, they lost other duels in overtime and raids. “We didn’t play what we had the last matches, but we went back to our game in Hradec last time. We have to work and it will come,” said striker Joona Jääskeläinen.

After the victory in Litvínov, Třinec moved to Central Bohemia, and in Mladá Boleslav the home team will try to suffer three defeats in a row. The experienced back Roth returned to the Steelworks cadre from a guest appearance in České Budějovice, but according to coach Václav Varadi, he will play on a farm in Frýdek-Místek and will not be on the ice in a Třinec jersey on Friday. “He still has a training shortage that he needs to catch up with. He is not here for the match now,” Varaďa said.

Despite the last two home wins, Zlín remains, together with České Budějovice, the worst team on its ice. He will strive for further success against Liberec. “When playing without spectators, it doesn’t matter. We don’t care if we win at home or away, the main points are three points. It is important for us that we experience a winning feeling,” said goalkeeper Daniel Huf.

The fourth Liberec did not find a winner in the basic playing time eight times in a row, of which the White Tigers celebrated the win six times. A week and a half ago, however, they lost raids in Zlín. “We are going to Zlín to win. We don’t really look at whether we have already won or lost with them. Of course we have something to give back. We want to collect as many points as possible and I believe we will take some from Zlín as well,” said defender Ronald Knot.

Vítkovice has not yet found a recipe for Olomouc during the season, which they lost twice by a goal. The Roosters finally returned to the line-up with the experienced Klimek and Strapáč, by the way, both former Vítkovice attackers. “It’s a big help for our game and it’s immediately recognizable. They showed it in the first match. Maybe someone else will come back on Friday,” coach Jan Tomajko suggested vaguely, probably towards the other injured Olesz.

Vítkovice is still rising under coach Miloš Holaně; they have won four times in the last six rounds. They expect to encounter stiff defiance again on Friday. “We are facing a fierce opponent, which we have recently been convinced of, and we have to prepare for it. Especially to be a bit more effective in the end, that was the thing we came up with against Olomouc last time,” said Holaň.

The last České Budějovice will welcome the twelfth Litvínov. The South Bohemians did not score three times in a row. Team Vervy came out empty in three of the last four matches, the last time on Wednesday after a home defeat 1: 2 with Třinec. “But the performance was very solid. At least we deserve a point,” regretted Severočechy coach Vladimír Országh.
