At the end of March Slovan visited stadium, where the Slovácko team has its territory. Home team had very bad results against the Liberec in the past, so the favorite of the match was clear.

Liberec had the ball on foots from the very beginning, but Slovácko took their opportunity to make some noise in front of visitor´s net. Juroška got the ball from Daníček, but his shot which headed on the left post was not strong enough, so Hladký had an opportunity to make a really great save. But the unwritten rule came true. Liberec took a lead in following action as Matěj Pulkrab was at the end of great pass made by Kerbr. Pulkrab´s shot came right next to the left post and visiting team could celebrate.

Players started to commit fouls and between four minutes all stadium could see three yellow cards. Tie was hanging in the air after a corner kick, but home player cannot take the advantage of it even after the hesitation of visitor´s defense. Both teams had their chances, but nobody found the recipe to increase the lead or on the other hand tied the game.

Both team came to the second half with one change in their line-up and Liberec had three corner kicks in a row, but none of them ended with two goals leading. Even medical care grab its spot in this match. Oscar and Břečka had met with their heads and both doctors had a job.

Bigger action came in last half an hour. Firstly, Navrátil tried his luck from the box border, but Hladký found the ball in his hands. Same player was also a part in the next action. After Navrátil´s pass Zajíc had the chance to tie the score. His shot headed next to the Liberec´s net. The most dangerous was Šimko´s cross which flew on the far post. If the ball was more accurate, Hladký would have not a chance to catch it. For Liberec´s luck, Šimko´s cross was a little longer than he needed.

Liberec could have a final word without his own action. Břečka hit the ball after the center and the ball changed the direction to the far post. Luckily for the home team it missed the net. With no change in the score and thanks to one goal, all three point match Slovan Liberec came back to the third position.
