Slavia defeated Jablonec, the second team of the league table, 3-0 and are now 12 points clear on top of the league.

Manager Jindřich Trpišovský made only one change in comparison with the last match against Zlín. The injured David Hovorka was replaced by David Zima who returned to the side after a few missed games. Ondřej Kolář started in goal, Bah as a right-back. Ondřej Kúdela played alongside David Zima in central defence and Jan Bořil started on the left side. Tomáš Holeš, Lukáš Provod, Abdallah Sima, Nico Stanciu and Peter Olayinka played in midfiled and Jan Kuchta started the game up front.

Both teams started the match with an attacking mindset so we could see a lot of promissing chances and shots on goal. The first big chance came in the 4th minute. Bah won the ball on the right wing and passed it to the middle of the box to Sima who was not marked by any defender. Sima had the perfect opportunity to score, but the ball jumped right in front of him and he missed the goal.

The first goal was scored by Abdallah Sima in the 20th minute! Peter Olayinka had the ball on left wing, saw Sima running trough the defence and passed the ball to him beautifully. Sima went aroung the goalkeeper with his first touch and finished into the open goal to give Slavia the lead!

Slavia managed to add another goal in the first half! Peter Olayinka stole the ball after a bad pass from Jablonec defenders, saw Nico Stanciu running to the right wing and crossed the ball to him. Stanciu lured the goalkeeper to go near him, passed to the other side to Kuchta who was completely alone in the penalty area and scored to the open net! 2-0.

The second half started in a slower tempo than the first one. Nevertheless, Slavia scored a third goal in the 58th minute. Tomáš Holeš had the ball on the edge of the penalty area, passed it to Provod who returned it to him immediately. Holeš tried to pass it to the other side of the box but it rebounded off Martinec and flew over the goalkeeper to the far post and into the net!

Another big chance came in the 65th minute. After a serie of passes between Kuchta, Olayinka and Bořil, the captain send the ball from the left wing to the edge of the penalty area to Provod who shot on goal, the goalkeeper saved it and saved even another shot, when Sima fired from the rebound.

In the 80th minute, Slavia had another good chances to score. After a number of beatiful passes between Traoré, Hromada and Stanciu, the Romanian midfielder found himself in front of the goalkeeper, shot from close range, but the goalkeeper saved his shot.

At the end of the match, Jablonec had a few chances to score, but Ondřej Kolář saved all the shots beautifully to keep a clean sheet.

Slavia beat Jablonec 3-0 and extended their lead in the league table to 12 points. The Red-whites will play again on 7th February against Příbram away from home.
