“They had a challenging program and an equally demanding program is ahead of us, we didn’t want to risk anything. After a break, it always takes a while to get into it. It was such a lean unsalty from us overall, but I believe it will improve,” he said Varaďa, who only lacks the wounded Jaroměřský. Třinec defeated Pilsen five times in a row at home.
