They definitely need to change something. Two weeks ago the Slavists lost 0:2 in Rome, on Sunday they suffered their first league defeat of the season against Pilsen, and at home.
“A sold-out Eden will drive them forward, it will be a completely different game again. Sometimes even a slap helps you in the next match… They have nothing to lose with such an opponent, they can surprise you,” emphasizes David Jarolím.
“In Rome, they paid the price for a bad start, coach Trpišovský will certainly prepare the team to play a more balanced game in return,” assures the expert in the studio.
The seamers have the advantage of a five-point cushion in the table ahead of Servette Geneva and Tiraspol. If they beat the finalist of last year’s Europa League, they would be guaranteed participation in the spring part of the cups, regardless of the other results.
“I guess it had to come sometime. Of course we are sad. But losing once in a year and a half is not so bad, it can happen. We simply did not play well against Pilsen. I believe that the next matches will be better,” forward Mick van Buren told club television.
The holiday match with AS Rome is an ideal opportunity for the team to forget.
“We have to put Sunday’s defeat behind us. We’ll show the video, analyze our mistakes, that’s the end of it. I believe that we will be strong again on Thursday, the fans will help us. Thanks to them, we are dangerous for everyone in European matches,” points out the Dutch striker, the author of the goal against Victoria.
