At home, they did not lose to today’s opponent even in the eighth match against each other in the top competition. The Slezans did not score on the Bohemians field for the sixth time in a row and did not follow up on the surprising 1-0 victory from the duel in Pilsen, where they got the only away points of the season two weeks ago.

In the match between Hradec Králové and Liberec, Christian Frýdek responded to the home team’s Daniel Vašulín’s leading goal in the first half. Two goals of the East Bohemians after the change of sides were disallowed due to offside.
