Slavia, in their final home match of the regular season of the FORTUNA:LIGA, drew with Olomouc 2-2. The opponent led by two goals, but Bořil and Chytil managed to erase the deficit with their goals. However, despite significant pressure in the end, Jindřich Trpišovský´s team couldn´t score the winning goal. The match was attended by 17,986 fans.
In the defensive line, captain Jan Bořil and the recovered David Douděra started. Christos Zafeiris replaced Petr Ševčík in midfield, while Matěj Jurásek returned to the wing.

The first major opportunity of the match came to Václav Jurečka, who couldn't convert Jan Bořil's pass into the net; his shot narrowly missed the right post. A few seconds later, the North Stand displayed the result of the morning Choreo School's work - a successful choreography with the theme of the animated children's characters "Minions".

THANK YOU for the beautiful work!

In the 8th minute, Jurečka had another chance, but his cross-shot was punched out by Stoppen. Mojmír Chytil, attempting a follow-up in a diving header, missed over the crossbar. The Olomouc-born player also tried his luck from a distance, but missed the goal narrowly. And for the third time, Chytil attempted to score, but Stoppen was once again successful in reducing the shooting angle, with the ball hitting his chest.

After twenty minutes, Igoh Ogbu blasted the ball from a distance, but didn't scare the young Sigma goalkeeper. The Nigerian defender then experienced an uncomfortable moment when Zifčák accidentally kicked him in the face, receiving the first yellow card of the match for it. In the 32nd minute, Jurečka had a chance to score the opening goal, but he missed high from a half-volley, understandably holding his head in his hands. A very good opportunity for Slavia's top scorer in the league.

In the 43rd minute, Jurásek aimed for a left-footed shot, but missed between the three posts. Despite the significant pressure from Slavia, the first half didn't bring a goal. Jindřich Trpišovský's team controlled the game for 73% of the time, had eleven attempts, but only two shots were directly aimed at Stoppen.

Zafeiris's penetration and subsequent cross with a slight deflection missed the goal, and Olomouc defended against the ensuing corner kick. After a free-kick, which followed Uriči's yellow card foul on Jurásek, Oscar tried a kick with his heel, but Stoppen was attentive on the goal line. In the 52nd minute, the visitors took the lead, with Pokorný finishing alone after a set-piece - 0-1.

Jindřich Trpišovský reacted with a triple substitution, sending in Ševčík, Provod, and Schranz, replacing Jurásek, Wallem, and Zafeiris. The prolonged siege of the visitor's goal resulted in Bořil's cross from the left side of the field, but Oscar couldn't manage to score between the three posts in a difficult position.

In the 66th minute, Olomouc led by two goals, taking advantage of Zima's slip, Zifčák, who, in a solo break, chipped over Jindřich Staněk - 0-2. Two minutes later, Jurečka was replaced by Mick van Buren, and Zima made way for Tomáš Holeš. Schranz's header went over the crossbar, while Ogbu's was hidden by Stoppen into gloves after a corner kick.

In the 77th minute, Jan Bořil sparked hope with a header, assisted by Oscar - 1-2. Slavia continued to push forward, Oscar missed the target, and van Buren couldn't pierce the block. In the 84th minute, the score was leveled, with Schranz's cross being tapped into the net by Mojmír Chytil - 2-2.

The referee added six minutes beyond normal playing time, with Stoppen struggling to pull Provod's rocket towards the near post to a corner kick. Oscar's shot missed the right post. Bořil won a corner kick against Israel, but the Hanáci resisted with all their might. Ševčík's header, with a slight deflection, missed the top corner.

Despite significant pressure, Slavia couldn't score the winning goal, and the match ended in a 2-2 draw in front of 17,986 fans. Slavia will conclude the regular season in a week in Hradec Králové.
