Votes after the match:
Juraj Jarábek, Serede coach: “We were ready for Slovan, he is the champion of Slovakia. We knew he would change the line-up, but we can’t get the goal we got in the 45th second. We had a hard time getting ahead, there was no quality in the final and pre-final phase. In the second at half the time we made changes to the wings, we got a chance, especially through Potom. I have to praise the boys, they fought, they were aggressive and they enjoyed the match. We wanted to equalize, we didn’t succeed, we keep going. “
Vladimír Weiss senior, Slovan coach: “We knew that it would not be an easy match for us, that coach Jarábek has good discipline and Serede players will fight, which was also confirmed. It happened to us exactly what happened at home with Trenčín, we scored a quick goal, satisfaction came. apart from Henty’s shot, there are other chances, only a few centers, Sereď fought and has player number ten, who is creative. now Aben has been injured again. I think Sereď will be in the middle of the table with this cadre and coach, they will definitely not play for rescue. “
