Slavia takes derby spoils

Bohemians were invited to Eden stadium to play their 12th round this season. Weber could not count on Berkovec in a goal, because of the loan agreement with Slavia Prague. Jiří Havránek took his spot and Petr Nerad, after his performance against Jihlava, ensured his position in a first team.

First minutes of the match could be characterized as a pressure by a home team. Slavia wanted to score a goal in a home environment after more than 3 matches. They only gained few free kicks but all of them were stopped by well-defending Bohemians wall.

The first bigger chance came in 20th minute. Nitransky appeared in a promising chance but his shot went wide. Jakub Hora took an advantage of a counter attack, went on a goalkeeper but keeper saved it. Kangaroos took a corner kick and Nerad’s shot was deflected by one of the defenders and ball went wide.

Both keepers could take a break for some time. Both teams’ chances ended with a defending line and no ball went any closer to the goal. Until 45th minute. It was just the time to go to cloakrooms for the halftime when Juhar stole a ball from Moravec, took a shot around Havránek and scored.

The beginning of the second half didn’t bring many chances. Jakub Rada had to substitute and Matěj Štochl took his place. 

The chances came after 20 minutes. Juhar got another deflected ball after Matěj Štochl’s mistake but missed a goal and Dobrotka’s shot was saved by the away keeper. Bohemians did not create any chances that could change the score. All of their attempts were stopped by the combination of inaccuracy and well defending defense of the home team. It was 10 minutes before time when Bohemians had a biggest chance to score an equalizer. Kalina crossed the ball to Ndiaye. His header went wide and the misery continued. The former Bohemians player Milan Škoda appeared in chance in last minute but his shot didn’t end behind the back of the away keeper. The match ended 1:0 and Slavia takes derby spoils.
