After two matches of group stage Slovan had only 1 point for draw with Karabach, so in home match aganist tough oppononet – Fiorentina – should have win.

Plan to win suffered in 8th minute when Nikola Kalinič shot after chaos in big square behind back of Dúbravka. And it could be even worse! Valero found Kalinič, but this time he did not managed to score. After this chance had first opportunity Slovan, player with strongest shot in our team Radim Breite shot from 20 metres, but defense of Italian team stopped his shot to corner. Corner kick was taken with interesting signal, but careful keeper Tătăruşanu cleared the chance. In 23rd minute did our defense big mistake and Nikola Kalinič took advantage o fit and doubled leading of his team. At the end of first half tried another shot Breite, but Tătăruşanu was ready this time as well.

Slovan entered second half in very good way and in 58th minute Petr Ševčík scored after corner kick. After 10 another minutes, Breite shot from free kick, but Romanian goalkeeper kept leading of Fiorentina by very good save. Slovan tried to attack and Fiorentina had space for breaks. On of these situations solved offensive trio brilliantly and Khoumu Babacar scored third goal. In 84th minute saw Radim Breite second yellow card and was sent off. Last shot tried Karafiát, but it went of a goal.

Slovan lost with Fiorentina and three another matches will be extremely tough. Chance for promotion to next round is very small.
