Home win against Zbrojovka Brno
Slavia put Zbrojovka under pressure from the very first minute and with 5 minutes on the clock Traoré’s dangerous header was aimed only in the middle of the goal and blocked by the visiting goalkeeper.
With 11 minutes on the clock the ball rebounded to Ševčík after Douděra’s cross, but our midfielder’s effort ended way above the crossbar.
Slavia created many set pieces, but Brno managed to score after one of their few counter attacks in the 19th minute. Luckily for the hosts, Řezníček`s strike was disallowed due to an offside.
In the 36th minute Řezníček appeared in another chance after Ševčík’s cross, but his effort was blocked by Kolář. Only 3 minutes later, on the other side Matěj Jurásek sent a beafutiful cross into the box and Peter Olayinka headed the ball just wide in a big chance.
David Douděra`s dangerous effort from the edge of the box was the last event of the first half but could not avoid the stalemate at the break.
The Red-Whites managed to break the deadlock after 58 minutes. Ewerton, who came on the pitch 4 minutes earlier, took a free kick from 22 metres, fired the ball through the wall and found the back of the net despite Berkovec touching the ball. 1-0.
Only 2 minutes later Řezníček went face to face to Kolář after a mistake in Slavia defence, but our goalkeeper managed to catch his chip with a great save.
In the 70th minute Kolář made another superb save against Ševčík who fired alone from inside of the box and Slavia goalkeeper blocked his effort from below the crossbar.
Another player coming from the bench then managed to give us a two-goal cushion at minute 85. Ewerton passed the ball from the left side to Mick van Buren and the Dutch forward curled the ball behind Berkovec.
It was van Buren’s 11th goal of the season which lifted him to the shared first place of the league top scorer’s table.
Slavia thus won their third game of the spring season, this time 2-0 home against Zbrojovka Brno.
