Slavia - Hradec Králové
Goals: 19. Gabriel (vlastní) – 7. Kučera
Slavia drew 1-1 at home with Hradec Králové meaning we will go into the Champion´s group from the second place.
With 8 minutes on the clock a long-range shot by Jakub Kučera put Hradec in the lead. The away midfielder sent a surprising shot from 25 metres and the ball flew through Kolář’s gloves into the net.

Slavia recovered from an early setback only 11 minutes later thanks to a Hradec own goal. Aiham Ousou sent a dangerous cross from the right side and Adam Gabriel’s failed clearance fund the back of his own net.

After half an hour Peter Olayinka had to be replaced by Mick van Buren after suffering an injury.

Shortly after the break Jurečka set up Mick van Buren behind Hradec defence and the Dutch forward sent the ball through Bajza, but the goal was disallowed after a narrow offside.

Three minutes later Masopust fired from the edge of the box, but his volley missed the left post.

In the 65th minute van buren managed to deflect a cross by David Jurásek, but his effort was not fast enough cross the line. Only a minute later Kolář showed a superb save against Vašulín who fired from sharp angle aiming for a far post.

Five more minutes later Jurečka outrun his defender on the right side and set up van Buren on the far post, but his header was blocked by Hradec goalkeeper.

The last big chance came in the added time. Zafeiris’ shot from a set piece hit the wall, but the ball rebounded to Ogbu who returned it to van Buren in front of goal, but Bajza made a good save to block the Dutch forward’s effort with his leg.

Slavia thus drew 1-1 with Hradec Králové and lost its 100% record at home this season. The Red-Whites finished second in the league table and will start the Champions Group at home against Bohemians next Saturday.
