Just a minute later the guests wasted even bigger opportunity. Jugas managed to block the ball on the goal line after a corner kick and Hronek stood in front of an open net just to miss the left post wide.

After an hour Rotaň could score his maiden goal afer Hušbauer’s back heel pass, but his joy was interrupted by linesmen due to offside.
