FC Hradec Králové - SK Slavia Praha
Goals: 90+1 Spáčil - 41. Provod, 43. Zmrzlý
Slavia secured a victory on the Hradec´s ground after a long two years, taking home important three points from the epilogue of the regular season. The 2-1 win was decided by two goals in quick succession from Lukáš Provod and Ondřej Zmrzlý just before halftime.
In the final round of the regular season, Slavia faced an unpopular opponent. Compared to the last match, a significantly modified starting lineup took to the field against the home Votroků. After two months, the recovered Ivan Schranz returned to the squad.

In the third minute, Mojmír Chytil could have opened the scoring for Slavia. He won the ball in the penalty area and attempted to bypass Zadražil, but the Hradec goalkeeper reflexively pushed the attempt away. Following a subsequent corner, Tomáš Holeš had a dangerous header, but Ivan Schranz couldn't utilize it at the back post in a difficult situation.

Ten minutes later, the same players swapped roles, with the captain's shot flying straight to the middle of the goal. The opponents also threatened, with Harazim narrowly missing the target of Jindřich Staňek's goal.

Around the 30th minute, the game became more balanced, with both teams making mistakes in combination. Mojmír Chytil fought fiercely upfront, but Kodeš didn't let him through to another chance yet.

Petr Ševčík demonstrated an interesting execution of a corner kick, finding the dangerous right-foot shot of David Douděra. However, he couldn't replicate the phenomenal projectile from the match against AC Milan from his favorite position.

In the 41st minute, it finally worked out. Lukáš Provod found the rebound on the edge of the penalty area and sent it precisely to the right post with his left foot - 1-0!

Just a few seconds later, Slavia celebrated for the second time. Tomáš Holeš found Ondřej Zmrzlý with a beautiful cross, who scored his debut goal in red and white with a prompt volley - 2-0!

As with the end of the first half, the beginning of the second belonged to the actively playing Slavia players. In the 57th minute, Lukáš Provod offered another goal-scoring opportunity to Ondřej Zmrzlý with a shot cross, but he couldn't reach the fast pass by a few centimeters.

Tomáš Holeš managed to head the ball after a subsequent corner kick, but sent his attempt high above the target. Lukáš Provod was active again, but the goalkeeper of the home team deflected his sharp offer into the penalty area with difficulty.

At the beginning of the 71st minute, coach Trpišovský sent fresh forces onto the field - Lukáš Masopust, Christos Zafeiris, and Mick van Buren.

At the start of the last ten minutes, with pacy striker Conrad Wallem also on the pitch, Jindřich Staňek showed his skills twice within a moment. First, he brilliantly saved Koubek's clear chance, then he pushed Harazim's dangerous shot away.

In the final battles, Michal Tomič replaced David Douděra on the right side of the field. In the first minute of added time, Spáčil spoiled Jindřich Staňek's clean sheet joy, hitting an uncatchable shot towards the post - 2-1.

No more goals were scored, and Slavia thus packed three points for the journey from Hradec Králové. With this victory, Jindřich Trpišovský also became the leader in the ranking of coaches with the most wins in the independent Czech league!

Slavia's first match of the extension phase awaits them on Saturday, May 4, at 6:00 PM, at home against Baník Ostrava.
