Slovan started the match with a lot of energy and confidence. Only 1 minute was played when Rabušic had a first attempt on the goal, but the post stopped us from a very early lead. It didn't take long though, until the team scored. After a mistake of Pardubice defender Prosek it was Sadílek who stayed cool in front of the goal keeper and shot the ball next to the far post and it was 1:0 for Slovan.

The joy of this good start soon even grew bigger, when Karafiát after a center from Mosquera headed the ball into the net in the 13th minute.

Our team didn't lean back. First it was Pešek who was close to scoring the third goal, but got stopped by the referee. Shortly later, he created a nice play with Sadílek and Rabušic until the ball reached Karafiát and the Slovak again scored, putting the ball underneath the bar.

It was a big joy to see Slovan play in such a confident and superior manner. The guests had to react and they reacted with three substitions at once after only 27 minutes. These changes put some more stability into the game of the guests, which resulted in a penalty for Pardubice when Chaluš played foul on Petráň inside the box. Luckily, goal keeper Knobloch also had a fine day and saved the penalty from the guests' top scorer Huf.

On the other side it was Sadílek who followed Karafiát's example and also scored his second goal of the match even before the half time whistle.

In the second half Pardubice put some relief on the score when Huf scored and reduced the result to 4:1. Slovan however, didn't slow down and had the chance of increasing the result even, but Nečas missed a chance, as did Faško a few moments later

Later Rondić entered the stage and had two more good opportunities, one goal being scored from an off-side position and the second chance saved by Boháč so that the result remained unchanged till the end of the match. A happy night for all Slovan fans ended with a 4:1 victory against Pardubice.
