Prague – Slavia footballers will welcome Pilsen today in the 14th round of the first league. The Red and Whites will be looking to get back to the top of the table ahead of defending champions Sparta, who edged them by two points thanks to a 2-0 win over Bohemians 1905 on Saturday. The match kicks off at 6pm.

Slavia won the Vršovice derby on the Bohemians 1905 pitch a week ago and have not lost 16 matches in the top competition. She has been doing well against Pilsen at home for a long time, in Eden with Viktoria in the league since the defeat in 2014, she has scored thirteen times in a row. They are on a 24-match unbeaten streak at their stadium in the top flight.

Pilsen, on the other hand, is currently not doing well at home. She lost three of her last four rounds and dropped to fifth place. They are already losing 11 points to Slavia, even though they have a postponed match in Mladá Boleslav.

Karviná will host Ostrava in the Silesian derby from 15:00. Second-to-last České Budějovice awaits a challenging duel in Liberec after two defeats, where they have not won 19 matches in the league since 1996.

Coaches’ votes before the matches of the 14th round of the First Football League:

MFK Karviná (12th) – Baník Ostrava (6th)

Juraj Jarábek (Karviná): “We gave a good tactical and combative performance against Pilsen, even the goalkeeper supported us. When it comes together, you can beat any opponent. We set ourselves the goal of getting the first points away from home, which we succeeded in. Now on we want to build on that in the home match as well. We want to play actively and show self-confidence against Baník as well.”

Pavel Hapal (Ostrava): “Of course, Karviná’s win in Pilsen surprised almost everyone. She gave a good performance there. But just as she won the match, she could have lost it. They will certainly be encouraged by that success. After the arrival of coach Jarábek, they improved their defense, they defend well , they are aggressive in this, moreover, they have upwardly mobile players. But we are concentrating first and foremost on ourselves and going to assert ourselves with our own game. We want to be active and I believe that after two (unsuccessful) home games we will be able to be more effective in ending.”

Slovan Liberec (9th) – Dynamo Ceske Budejovice (15th)

Jakub Harant (assistant coach of Liberec): “The last time we met Budějovice was in the May extension. In the away match, we led 2:0 early, but the opponent turned the score around with three goals and won. We handled the rematch with Nisa very well, won 4:0 and advanced . Both teams wanted to play and attack, I expect a similar match on Sunday as well. It’s good that we made it to the round of 16 of the MOL Cup this week and remained on a positive note after the successful last league rounds. The opponent has a number of interesting players – for example, the skilled midfielders Hellebrand and Čermák, in the attack of the strong Adedirano with the mobile Alli. We have done well in the last two home games and we will do everything to perform well and add another win.”

Marek Nikl (Č. Budějovice): “We have to try to make up for the bad performance against Pardubice. We are in a situation where we need to score and collect points from away games as well. So far we are not doing as well as we would like. Liberec has form, we know that , he has done some results now. We respect his quality, but we are certainly not afraid of him. We also have quality and I believe that together with well-prepared tactics it will work on Sunday. We go into it wanting to succeed and score points.”

Slavia Prague (1st) – Viktoria Plzeň (5th)

Jindřich Trpišovský (Slavia): “It’s still the beginning of the league, not even the autumn part is over yet. We don’t look too much at the current standings and ranks, they will be important at the end of the season. We have another big home game ahead of us, in which we have to confirm the win against Bohemians. Pilsen plays big away matches well. She won in Zagreb, she also played a good match at Sparta. We know the Pilsen team, many players have been there for a long time, we also know coach Koubek. He is such a strategist, he knows how to prepare the team for such matches. He can typologically replace Durosinmi at the top Sick.”

Jan Trousil (assistant coach of Pilsen): “After two league losses, we want to score points. We respect the strength of Slavia, but if we want to stay at the top, we have to go there with the goal of succeeding. Against Karviná, we created enough chances to win the match. We mainly appeal for concentration in the end. We believe that against Slavia, even though it is a very strong opponent, we will manage to score goals again. If we score goals, of course we have a better chance to succeed. Every match at Slavia is attractive for players and fans. We believe that the atmosphere will be dignified on the pitch and in the stands.”
