Breznaník) votes after the match (source: Nova Sport 1): Jaroslav Hynek, Žilina coach: “They were happy we are in for a good game, we will give it our all. Unfortunately, the red card affected the proceedings and we played most of the duel in ten. Except for one opportunity, which the opponent converted, we did not make any mistakes. We created the chances that we should have converted. Before conceding a goal, we had a great opportunity, it was a no-go, a shame.” Roman Skuhravý, coach of Podbrezova: “I consider it a lucky victory. I’m satisfied with the way we played until the elimination, then the sterility came. We appreciate that we won here, but in the second half we played very slowly. I saw a little bit in the players frustration that we can’t do it. We lacked patience, then you make mistakes. The opponent threatened with counterattacks, if we scored 0-1 from Galčík, we wouldn’t be surprised.” Author: © List of VIDEOS: Voyo Source: TASR
