The first dangerous attack came from Slovan, specifically Musa, who won two head-to-head battles but subsequently failed to beat Malinský. After a corner played by Sýkora in the 8th minute, Breite shot, the defending player blocked it and Hrubý didn’t need to stop it. In fact, neither goalkeeper had anything to do in the first 20 minutes.

There was a great opportunity for the guests in the 29th minute, when Vatajelu rushed down the wing and found Doležal with a pass, but his quick shot headed toward the net was blocked by Karafiát. At the other end, Slovan finally showed up. After the centre from Hybš from the left side of Sýkora he tried a scissor kick, which looked great but did not hit the goal. Fukala got the ball on the right after 39 minutes, and the ball went wide. The Jablonec defence blocked the ball.

In the second half, Jablonec were the first side to threaten, as Sobol overtook Fukal and sent the ball to Vatajel, who missed the net from a promising position. After a corner in the 55th minute, Slovan shot on target for the first time, namely Sýkora, but Hrubý was ready. In the 62nd minute, after a Jablonec corner, Pešek escaped on a quick break, got almost alone in front, but his shot missed.

Kratochvíl gave Nguyen a quick free kick close to the back of the net! After the 60th minute, Jablonec started to take over the reins of the match, recording several shots and chances, but Nguyen stopped everything. Kačaraba made a good effort at breaking through in the middle, but couldn't get the shot off.

Jablonec were again dangerous in the 79th minute, this time the Trávník had time in front. He worked the ball and fired it, but just missed. Towards the end of the match, Kačaraba had a couple of chances - first Nguyen deflected his shot away, and then on the subsequent corner, he headed the ball high. But after all that, nobody scored, and so the 50th “Podještěd Derby” ended 0-0.
