It wasn’t until the seventh round of FORTUNA:LIGA that Sigma Olomouc striker Antonín Růsek made his mark for the first time. He scored after eight duels in which he was silent. He increased his goal to 2:0 in Ďolíček against Pardubice. But before that, he hit the post twice.

“I think it fell off me. I already put a beam in Hradec. Now two poles, even though Poky (Jakub Pokorný) got there from one, so I thought it was fine. But with the second one, I wondered if it was bad luck or if I wasn’t doing enough for it,” Růsek described his feelings.
In the second half, however, he got one more chance and shot Markovič between the legs, even though the Pardubice goalkeeper reached for the ball. “Fortunately, I changed her. I’m glad for that, because it weighed on my head,” admitted the 23-year-old footballer.

And it’s not just about Rűsk. Overall, Sigma’s efficiency this year is troubling. “We want to build a gaming identity, and so far it is only successful in part of the gaming activity. I think we are an unpleasant team in terms of pressing and attacking. But then there is B – the quality of finishing situations after profit and behavior in chances. You can see that we are struggling and when I looked at some statistics, we are probably the very last in terms of shooting efficiency. That percentage is very low, and the match with Pardubice documented it as well,” confirmed Hanák’s coach Václav Jílek.
“I believe that Pilsen, with its efficiency, would have won here 6:0,” he added. And it is the Champions League group participant who will be Olomouc’s next opponent on Saturday at Andrová Stadium. “We won’t have as many opportunities against Pilsen as against Pardubice. I hope a little that our heads will clear after this victory, that we will get away from it and that we will perform well with Pilsen and keep some points at home,” believes Antonín Růsek.
