Jablonec nad Nisou – Pilsen footballers won the quarter-finals of the MOL Cup home cup in Jablonec smoothly 3:0. Viktoria decided with two goals between the 34th and 37th minute, when Nemanja Tekijaški scored an own goal and then Jan Kopic scored. Cheick Souaré added the insurance after the break.

The match did not take place on the original date at the end of February due to dense fog. Plzeň has reached the top four in the MOL Cup after three years and will welcome Zlín in the semi-finals. According to the website of the competition, the match in the west of Bohemia will take place on April 24, i.e. less than a week after Viktoria will play in Florence for the rematch of the quarter-finals of the European Conference League. In the second semi-final of the cup, the second division Opava will challenge last season’s finalist and reigning Czech champion Sparta Praha on Wednesday.

“The team was tight today and wanted to win. You could feel it from the team even before the match. I saw a team that, when it decides to win, it will win. I would say that we also applied European experience,” he said at the press conference coach of Viktoria Miroslav Koubek.

Both teams entered the cup quarter-finals after defeats in the league at the weekend. Pilsen lost to Liberec 1:3 and suffered their first defeat after 16 competitive duels. Supporters Chorý, Červ, Hranáč and Dweh returned to Viktoria’s lineup, while North Bohemia was missing a number of injured players.

Nevertheless, Jablonečtí were the first to threaten. In the third minute, Filip Souček curled a corner kick directly into the goal, and goalkeeper Jedlička, after a slight hesitation, caught the ball just before the line. In the 12th minute, Šulc, the former Jablonec midfielder and the best scorer of the league season, did not succeed on the opposite side, who hit the post. After half an hour of the game, the goal construction saved the guests after Kratochvíl’s shot from outside the box.

Pilsen opened the scoring in the 34th minute. Kopic sent a cross from the right side into the box, and Tekijaški unfortunately headed it into his own net. In the next three minutes, Viktoria increased. After a nice combination and Souaré’s pass, Kopic, another former Jablonec midfielder, finished at the back post.

“In the beginning, they had home defenses, I was bothered by the bounced balls, which Jablonec was able to finish repeatedly. But then we scored two goals in quick succession and Jablonec bounced back. Both wing players were excellent, it was one of the elements that decided the match. They helped us even the players who returned to the lineup,” said Koubek.

On the other side, he fired a shot past Chanturišvili, but otherwise, the guests controlled the progress relatively clearly. In the 65th minute, they increased the score to 3-0 after Souaré sent the rebound right to the post. The French winter reinforcement Viktoria scored the second competitive goal for West Bohemia.

“Until the first conceded goal, we played the way we wanted, from a secure defense and on breaks. Until then, it was an even match. Then, unfortunately, we conceded an own goal and then Štěpánek fell asleep while defending,” quoted Jablonec coach Radoslav Látal from press conference club website. “We don’t play badly, but we still make individual mistakes and because of that it was after the game at halftime,” the coach regretted.

In the 75th minute, Jedliček intervened against Kanakiman, and the twelfth team of the top league did not even get a goal against the third team. Pilsen followed up the 2:1 victory over Jablonec in the previous league round and did not lose against North Bohemia for the eighth time in a row.

Coaches’ votes after the game:

Radoslav Látal (Jablonec): “Until the first conceded goal, we played the way we wanted, from secure defense and on breaks. Until then, it was an even match. Then, unfortunately, we conceded an own goal and then Štěpánek fell asleep while defending. We are not playing badly, but we still commit individual mistakes and because of that it was after the match in the half. I don’t want to put down Victoria’s performance, but today she was playable. But if we make such mistakes, then unfortunately we can’t succeed. After the break we wanted to, optically we looked somehow, but we didn’t even have a chance. “

Miroslav Koubek (Pilsen): “In the beginning, they had home defenses, I was bothered by the bounced balls, which Jablonec was still able to finish repeatedly. But then we scored two goals in quick succession and Jablonec bounced back. At halftime, we knew that nothing had been won yet and we wanted to score another goal. after the change of sides, the home team surprised us a bit with their formation, we had problems there. But my team was tight today and went for the win. Both wing players were excellent, it was one of the elements that decided the match. The players who returned to the lineup also helped us . The team could already feel before the match that they were going for the win and that there was no possibility of correction. I would say that we also applied the European experience that we are gaining along the way and the boys are drawing from it.”
