Slovan started the match carefully and tried to launch attacks with long shots from the defence, but often lacked the necessary accuracy. One of the first attacks was from Karviná in the 13th minute as Ba Loua threatened but was offside. In the 18th minute came a nice moment for Slovan, as Kuchta from the right wing passed into the area for Oscar, who then fed Jakub Pešek, who quickly reacted and sent the ball between the legs of the goalkeeper Pastornický. A few minutes later, the lead could have been widened after a ball that was headed towards Kačaraba's head just barely missed.

Then Karviná woke up, blocking dangerous shots from Mikula twice within five minutes. By the 26th minute, Karviná took their first shot and Nguyen couldn’t reach it, but fortunately he was helped by his defence. Nguyen was finally relied on in the 34th minute. Ba Loua sent a ground cross that went through the area to Hanousek, but the goalkeeper made a great move and got his fingertips on the shot. At the other end of the pitch, Breite missed a very promising opportunity, ending up in front of Pastornický, but unfortunately missed the goal.

For the second half, Karviná manager František Straka made two changes. But just like in the first half, Slovan threatened. A long throw-in got to Pešek, but the midfielder’s header just missed the goal. Emotions came in the 59th minute when Nguyen was absurdly bumped by Janeček. The Karviná player received a yellow card and the Liberec keeper had to be treated. An important moment of the match came in the 68th minute when Oscar received his second yellow card and had to retire for the evening. Thus, Liberec were reduced to only 10 men on the field.

After 78 minutes, Bukata made way for a shot from behind and the Liberec fans at the pitch seemed to be blocking the crossbar. Mikula was fouled in the 90th minute, but a corner from Karviná followed. Nguyen had a great opportunity to reply, and hit the ball from the left. In minute 90 + 3, Baoua went in alone on the goalkeeper and Mara pulled him from behind, earning the second red card of the match, and Slovan were forced to finish the final moments with nine. In the end, Liberec were able to claim all three points, defending a close 1-0 scoreline.
