Prague – The footballers of Prague’s Slavia won the 11th round of the first league over Liberec 3: 1. The defending champion was sent by Alexander Bah in the 43rd minute, and in the middle of the second act, former Severočechů player Jan Kuchta raised. Former Slavist midfielder Miroslav Stoch reduced the lead in the 73rd minute, but Peter Olayinka made the final decision in the next eight minutes. The Prague team defeated Liberec for the sixth time in a row.

Slavia won after two competitive defeats, which she suffered before the national team break. In the league last time, she lost the derby on Sparta and did not score in the highest competition after a record series of 54 matches. In the incomplete table, the people of Prague lose two points from second place to the leader Pilsen, who plays in this round on Sunday in Teplice. The Slavists have a postponed match with Olomouc for good. Liberec lost for the second time in a row and is thirteenth.

After health problems, the healed goalkeeper Kolář returned to the Slavic goal, celebrating his 27th birthday on Sunday. After the injury, Kačaraba stepped on the stopper, playing with a protective mask after a broken face. For the first time after the summer arrival from Brugg to Eden, Krmenčík got a chance in the league from the beginning.

As expected, the people of Prague held the ball and tried to dictate the pace, but at first the well-defending guests did not let them into the chances. Slovan relied on breaks and had the first two major options. In the 19th minute, Matoušek, who, as on the other side, the Slavic Kačaraba could get up despite the visitors from the opponent’s club, fired from the side and Kolář the ball flowed into the corner.

With 34 minutes played, the visitors broke through on the right after some poor defending. The Praguers lacked accuracy in the final stage, yet they still hit the break. Goal Knobloch fired Stanciu’s shot in front of the goal after 43 minutes. The Danish quarterback scored for the second time in the Czech league.

The Liberec team started the second half more actively, in the 52nd minute he broke through from the side in front of the goal Matoušek, but from the angle he did not push the ball through Koláře. Then, on the opposite side, Krmenčík threatened twice, who first hit Knobloch with a hard blow from a distance and then did not even make his head.

After an hour of play, Hromada was injured and the Praguers lost another of the stoppers. In the 67th minute, the home team increased. Krmenčík took the vertical on the edge of the offside and directed his pass from the right side into the lime into the Kuchta net. The national team striker scored for the sixth time in the league season and reached the top of the shooting table.

Liberec still managed to dramatize the match for a while. The former Slavist Stoch was on the lawn as a substitute for about five minutes, when he collided with Havelka and overcame Kolář with a shot on the front pole. He apologized for the goal against the former club and the home fans rewarded him with applause.

The North Bohemians fed the hope of a settlement for only eight minutes. A corner kick from Stanciua brought Kuchta to the corner and Olayinka approached the net with a header. The Nigerian midfielder, who recently struggled with injuries, hit for the first time since March and stylishly celebrated his 100th duel in the Czech league. The Slavists won a tune in for Thursday’s European Conference League match at Maccabi Haifa.
