Pardubice – Tuesday’s overture to the 31st round of the hockey extra league, in which Pardubice will welcome Pilsen, will offer a very attractive confrontation. The third Dynamo continuously has only a two-point lead over the fourth Škoda team. Thus, both opponents can switch positions in the basic playing time if the West Bohemians succeed.

The well-known saying “my house, my castle” has been valid for ten matches between the two teams, and the last person to win in the opponent’s arena was Pilsen in mid-February 2019. Since then, the Indians have also managed to score outside, but it was not enough to win. In the east of Bohemia, they lost two matches in overtime. Early this season, however, they lost 0: 4 in Pardubice.

After a minor crisis and three matches with only two points, Dynamo switched on again, resulting in three consecutive wins, plus a three-goal difference each time. On Sunday, the people of Pardubice succeeded in the stadium of the last Zlín 4: 1. “The boys played responsibly and I have to praise them. Quality performance and great three points,” said goalkeeper Milan Klouček in an interview for the club’s website.

His team thus confirmed Friday’s success in a duel with the leader Třinec (6: 3). “Both teams play differently, but we try to focus on ourselves and our game to do what we have and what the coach tells us. It’s just about us, if we give quality performances, we can beat everyone. But at the same time we can with everyone to lose, the extra league is balanced, “Klouček reminded.

Pilsen last played on Friday, when it managed the West Bohemian derby with Karlovy Vary, which it pushed 3: 2. Likewise, the charges of the coaching duo Václav Baďouček and Miloš Říha will strive for the fourth win in a row.

“I just know we have a few more matches, so it’s very important for me that we’ve won three matches now. There are mistakes everywhere, but we have nine points for the last three duels, which we’re happy for. We’ll be well prepared on Tuesday, “forward Jan Schleiss planned.

Due to a two-match disciplinary penalty, guests will miss national team striker Kodýtek.
