Goals: 4. van Buren, 70. Chytil
Mick van Buren and Mojmír Chytil scored in the opening win of the season.
Slavia started the game with three centre-backs, Tomáš Vlček was one of them in his debut in starting line-up hust a day after signing new contract until 2027.

And it was Vlček who started a dangerous attack only 4 minutes into the game. He set up Schranz behind Hradec defence, our midfielder passed the ball in front of an open net and Mick van Buren opened the score.

In the 21st minute Václav Jurečka latched onto another through pass on the edge of the box and fired the ball behind Bajza, but the goal was disallowed after a VAR check of Jurečka’s offside.

Five minutes later Tomáš Holeš got another great pass into the box, but his effort ended above the crossbar. The first half thus ended with a narrow Slavia lead.

After 58 minutes Hradec got into their biggest chance when Krejčí got the ball from the left wing behind Slavia defence, but Kolář managed to block his shot with a superb save. In the following attack Mick van Buren cut inside from the left side of the box, but his deflected shot only hit the post.

Slavia thus did not manage to double their lead until 70th minute. Mojmír Chytil – who came on the pitch 9 minutes earlier, headed after Provod’s cross, Bajza only blocked his effort and after several rebounds Chytil managed to send the ball into the net. He scored in his league debut for Slavia after joining the club from Sigma.

In the 79th minute Ondřej Lingr got into the biggest chance to score another goal for Slavia, but Bajza managed to block the ball from under the crossbar.

Slavia thus take three points from the opening game of the season. We will play away at České Budějovice in the second round, the game starts on Sunday, 30 July, at 3 pm.
