Slavia are now 9 points clear on top of the table after a 6-2 away win in Zlín.

Manager Jindřich Trpišovský made two changes to his starting eleven compared to the last match against MFK Karviná. Ondřej Kolář maintained his position in goal, Alexander Bah replaced Lukáš Masopust who got injured in the last game. David Hovorka started in central defence alongside Ondřej Kúdela and Jan Bořil played as left-back. Tomáš Holeš and Lukáš Provod maintained their position in defensive midfield. Abdallah Sima, Nicolae Stanciu and Peter Olayinka played in the attacking midfield trio. Jan Kuchta started the game upfront.

Slavia started the match dominantly and their pressure was rewarded early in the match. In the 3rd minute, Alexander Bah sent a trough ball to the right wing to Abdallah Sima. He crossed the ball precisely to the middle of the box to Peter Olayinka who finished with a volley to give Slavia an early lead!

In the 6th minute, Zlín almost equalised after a cross from the left wing found Poznar in the middle of the penalty area. He headed the ball into the net but the goal was disallowed because the attacker found himself in an offside position.

Jan Kuchta confirmed his great form and added a second goal of the game in the 12th minute! Abdallah Sima had the ball on the right wing, sent the ball to the box to Alexander Bah. He did not wait and passed it quickly right in front of goal to Kuchta who tapped it into the net easily from close range!

Slavia added another goal in the 18th minute! Nico Stanciu sent a cross to the penalty area from a free kick. The ball rebounded from Abdallah Sima to Peter Olayinka who tried to shoot quickly. The shot rebounded from Jan Kuchta to the opposite direction of the goal and right into the net!

Unfortunately, right after the third goal, David Hovorka had to be substituted because he got injured. Taras Kačaraba came on the pitch instead of him.

The Red-whites could not stop banging in the goals and Abdallah Sima scored another in the 36th minute! After Alexander Bah dribbled trough the defence, he passed the ball to Kuchta who turned back and found Sima on the edge of the penalty area. Sima shot a beautiful volley right to the top left corner. A contender for the goal of the season!

Slavia even added a fifth goal until the end of the first half. During a counter attack, Alexander Bah sent the ball to the right wing to Peter Olayinka, he passed it into the box to Provod who sent it to the middle of the penalty area to Kuchta. Jan Kuchta shot with a volley to the top right corner and completed his hattrick!

Zlín scored at the beginning of the first half to make the score 5:1. They had the advantage of a free kick. Martinez sent the cross into the penalty area, the ball dropped to Cedidla who tapped it into the net from close range.

And the home side added another goal in the 74th minute. Jawo tried to shoot from a wide angle in the penalty area but his shot was blocked by the defence. But the ball still got trough to the middle of the box to Poznar who schored from close range to make it 5:2.

But Slavia had the last say in the match. Ibrahim Traoré stole the ball in midfield, passed it to Petar Musa who took it to the edge of the box. Then he passed to Provod who return the ball to him and Musa shot under the goalkeeper to score his first goal of the year.

Slavia beat Zlín 6:2 and extended their lead in the FORTUNA:LIGA. The Red-whites will play another game on 31st January against FK Jablonec.
