The opening minutes of the match were very careful, without any dangerous chances. It wasn’t until the 10th minute that the first shot was sent by Baluta from a distance of about 18 meters, but Lé Giang caught his attempt without any difficulty. In the 15th minute, Kuchta was fouled by the Kangaroo goalkeeper, Lé Giang. Kamsa Mara fired a 17-meter free-kick home 17 minutes into the match. A moment later, on a counter-attack on a defended corner by the Bohemians, Nguyen sent our players forward and Mara got the shot from a distance, but his blast flew too high.

Kuchta got the ball and sent a quick shot to the lower right corner, but the goalkeeper stopped it. The score was levelled in the 27th minute after a pass from the right side was finished off by Jakub Nečas. But less than 10 minutes later, Jan Kuchta sent Liberec again into the lead after a precise pass from Mara. A minute later, Baluta got another chance on a set-up by Kuchta. However, the Bohemians keeper reacted quickly and deflected it away.

The first rush of the second half came after the release of Malinsky on the left side, and just before the area sent a pass to the approaching Kuchta. At first, it seemed that midfielder Bederka was in control, but the ball slipped through him. Jan Kuchta just managed to reach the home side and the goalkeeper didn’t have a chance. With 58 minutes played, the Bohemians demanded a penalty from the left touchline, but the ball went wide. However, the referee saw the situation differently and gave instructions to continue the game.

The second half was often interrupted due to many fouls and Liberec played more defensively. With 80 minutes played, the Bohemians enjoyed a shot from the left-hand side but the ball went wide. It turned out that the whole action was preceded by an offensive foul from the substitute Mosquery. In the 88th minute, Malinský relaxed and ran towards an empty Kangaroo net. He wanted to send a pass to the end of Peška, but the ball got entangled between his legs and found his teammate in an offside position.

Not long after, the guests had a great chance. Mosquera came close to cutting the deficit when he found himself completely unmarked in front of the goal after a pass through the middle, but he lifted the ball over Nguyen. Just before the end, the home team got a great chance when Rondić got the ball, but goalkeeper Lé Giang denied him. By full time, no further scoring was done and Slovan won 3-1.
