Coach Miroslav Koubek’s men, who before the match with Ballkani were already certain of progressing to the round of 16 from first place, will close the group stage in two weeks at home against Astana. The Kazakhstan national team lost to Dinamo Zagreb 0:2 on their field.

Koubek made seven changes to the starting eleven from Saturday’s league match in Hradec Králové (1:1). The sick man, who could not start due to three yellow cards, was replaced in the attack by Kliment. Eighteen-year-old goalkeeper Baier and defender Paluska also got a chance from the start.

At the Albanian National Stadium, where the match was moved due to the poor pitch in Pristina, Ballkani created the first major chance in the 14th minute. However, stopper Hranáč managed to head the ball from the goal line.

On the other side, Kliment only aimed the volley into the middle of the goal. In the 36th minute, Baier held the visitors against Karric’s shot. At the end of the first half, Kliment missed from close range with a pass by Mosquera, who did not beat Kolici from the free kick.

Goalkeeper Ballkani also made a good save at the beginning of the second half, when he blocked Kalvach’s shot. The guests began to have more and more dominance and Bucha fired over the crossbar from a good position.

The decisive goal

The West Bohemians scored in the 81st minute thanks to Kolici’s hesitation. The goalkeeper of the reigning Kosovar champions ran confusedly towards the crowd of teammates after the corner, and the free Šulc aimed his head into the open goal.

Moments later, they could have added Kalvach’s safety, but he headed just wide from distance. In the end, Viktoria kept a close lead and repeated the result from the September home match against Ballkani.

In this year’s Conference League, including qualification, Pilsen maintained their invincibility and won for the tenth time in a row. The Czech teams did not even lose their sixth cup match against their Kosovar rivals.
