Pilsen – At the beginning of the 2nd preliminary round of the European Conference League, the Pilsen footballers defeated the Belarusian Dynamo Brest 2: 1 at home and started to advance. Revenge is played in a week in Yerevan.
Pavel Šulc and Filip Kaša won the first half at the Victoria Stadium, where 4468 fans arrived after the measures against the spread of coronavirus were relaxed. After a change of side, the West Czech favorites relaxed and in the 79th minute Aleksandr Šestjuk reduced the substitution.
The home team lacked goalkeeper Staněk due to health problems, defenders Havel and Hejda or midfielders Bucha, Kalvach and Kopic. The competition premiere for the Pilsen A-team was recorded by midfielders Hlavatý, Mosquera and Ndiaye.
The people of Plzeň threatened for the first time in the fifth minute in the first competitive match of the season, but Beauguel missed the goal of Brest with a cross shot after the action of Šulka and Mosquera. A moment later, the French striker’s goal did not pay due to offside.
The more active West Bohemians opened the score in the 22nd minute. After Slabaševič’s mistake, Kayamba hit the stick up close and Šulc easily headed for the open goal. The Pilsen team added a second goal in 11 minutes. Falta centered from the corner into the sixteenth, and the uncovered stopper Kaša pushed through with a sharp head.
At the beginning of the second half, the home goalkeeper Hruška hit Šestjuk’s corner from an angle. On the other hand, Beauguel dropped another opportunity and overshot the defenders after a “jammer”.
In the next few minutes, the home team withdrew from the offensive activity and were not as dominant as in the first act. However, the Belarusian champion from 2019 did not create a better chance for a long time.
However, Brest eventually punished passive Viktoria in the 79th minute from a counterattack. Oreškevič received the ball for the Pilsen defense and challenged another substitute, Šestjuk, who did not hesitate in the face of Hrušek. In the setting, he could even equal Affi, but he headed over the crossbar.
Advancing in the 3rd preliminary round of the EKL, they will face the winner of the duel between Kaun Žalgiris and The New Saints. The Welsh team won the first duel outside 5: 0.
