Penalty shootouts in the amazing drama were about to happen when excitement broke out in Eden. Ivan Schranz hit the net already in extra time for the group and sent the Slavic footballers through Czestochowa into the Conference League group. After losing 1-2 in the first game, the Braggins beat their Polish opponent 2-0 in the return match at home after extra time and are looking forward to Friday’s draw. They will be with him in the first basket.
And Slavia fought this year’s qualifiers despite the third contender, avoiding the threat of the fall without cups and will play with the group for the sixth time in a row on the European stage.
Next to her, Slovácko also entered the group. The advancement reward is 2.94 million euros (about 72 million kroner). Last season, Slavia reached the Conference League quarter-finals, and Eden hosted that year’s final.
Coach Slavia Trbichowski made five changes to the starting lineup compared to the opening match in Poland. Unusually, he bet a formation with three plugs, and Masopust was one of them. Experienced Tecl got a chance at the offensive end after a hat-trick in Sunday’s 7-0 league win over Pardubice.
First-placed Kovacevich returned to Rakov’s goal after injury, on the other hand, Czech defender Petracic, who has yet to play a minute this season, is still missing.
Despite the organized defense of the Polish Cup winners, the Reds and Whites struggled to get any chances from the start. Raku had more chances in the first half. In the third minute after the signal from the corner, former player Karvenier Rondić made his way towards the ball, but aimed towards the goal.
In the middle of the opening session, the home team waited for an even greater opportunity. After a set in the 23rd minute, Lopez outplayed Mandouse, who first hit the Slavic goalkeeper in Toto and hit the crossbar from a stop. Less than half an hour into the match, Gvilia stretched behind the goal and narrowly missed a fine shot. The Slavs did not have a clear chance for the entire first half.
Even after the team change, it was Raku and the substitutes who were the first to threaten. First, Gutkowskis narrowly missed with the help of Tiki, then in the 57th minute, Doviak and Doviak hit the side-netting for an empty goal after a ball from Mandos. Shortly before that, coach Trbichovsky made three substitutions and reinforced his attacks with Bellingra, Olinka and Schranz.
The latter was involved in the main goal. In the 62nd minute, Cevicek moved the ball with a long pass to the right side, where Schranz hit Ussur and launched a technical attempt at the back post on the goalkeeper. The 20-year-old Nigerian scored for the third time in his last four competitive matches and followed it up with two goals from the match against Pardubice.
The people of Prague, who attacked in the second half in the direction of the “cauldron”, came back to life and quickly rose up. After a while, Ussur got another chance, but hit the rebound in the middle of the goal.
On the other hand, Rondić narrowly missed a free kick. Otherwise, at the end of the original time, they had one more home match. In the 86th minute, substitute Oscar ran to the center of the goal and Kovacevich headed home. Then the Bosnian goalkeeper also blocked Linger’s attempt, and the double match went into overtime.
In it, Trpišovský sent a new Tiéhi pass to the field, and he could shoot with a goal after three minutes, but Kovačevi crossed into the corner. Then the chances dwindled and it looked like the match was headed for a penalty shootout. But in the first minute of extra time, Olayinka crossed into the penalty area, and another substitute player, Schranz, scored one of the most important goals of his career with a header.
By winning in the last seconds, Prague reclaimed their unforgettable 4:3 victory after overtime over Sevilla in the Europa League round of 16 in March 2019.
The Slavs asserted that they are doing well at home in the cups, in Aden they lost only one of the last 11 duels on the European stage. Trpišovský’s men coped with the Polish opponent better than they did a year ago, when they lost to Legia Warsaw in the fourth preliminary round of the European League.
