The footballers of Slavia did it and avenged the defeat of AS Rome from the previous match in the European League match. In the home environment of Eden, the stitchers triumphed 2:0, with goals from Václav Jurečka and Lukáš Masopust. Coach Trpišovský’s wards came significantly closer to progress.
AS Roma started with the biggest stars Lukaku and El Shaarawy, but it was the famous players who had the upper hand in the first half. The home team had probably the best chance in the 27th minute, Zafeiris could have opened the score, but he shot over the ball in the fall.
The sold-out Eden did, however, make it. At the end of the second half, a fluffy cross came into the goal of the Romans, which Masopust pounced on, but Svilar neutralized his attempt. However, Chytil also got to the kicked ball, who served it to Jureček, and he cheered up the crowded stands.
However, coach Mourinho’s team could soon equalize. Belotti ran down the left wing and fired at the back post. But Mandous made a great move. On the Slavia side, Provod wanted to improve the score, but Svilar pushed his shot into the corner.
In the 74th minute, they hit the seam again. This time, Lukáš Masopust hit the net for the Italian team brilliantly and Slavia bounced back to a two-goal gap.
In the end, coach Trpišovský’s team had several more chances, but he did not convert them and won 2:0. Rome thus avenged the defeat from the previous match.
