SKF Sered – SK Slovan Bratislava 0: 1 (0: 1)
Goal: 1. Dražič. Decisions: Sedlák – Weiss, Galo, ŽK: Kadlec, Dias – Križan, Rabiu, 328 spectators.
ŠKF Sereď: Iliev – Kadlec, Dias, Hurtado, Morong – Potoma (83rd Cross), Haša (83rd Radič), Gatarič – Popovič (90th Michalík), Jureškin, Yao (67th Machuča)
ŠK Slovan: Chovan – Hrnčár, Abena (45. Kašia), Križan, De Marco – Kankava, Lichý (80. Rabiu) – Dražič (80. Čavrič), Green – Sagittarius (90. Zmrhal), Henty (80. Weiss)
With 40 minutes played, Slovana De Marco could have brought this one home for Slovana De Marco as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. Shortly before the end of the first half, the coach of the guests had to change, the injured Aben was replaced by Kašia.
In the set time of the first half, Sagittarius’ attempt from a direct kick did not have the necessary accuracy and Slovan went into the cabins with a one-goal lead.
After 52 minutes, Bratislavčan Henty got through on the right and was very close to equalizing for the home side, but didn’t get the shot away. Haša could have increased the lead after 54 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. Jureškin knocked one home from a counterattack down the right wing after 56 minutes, but Slovana was unable to convert from short range.
In the 69th minute, Kašia remained in the Serede penalty area after a fight, but the game continued and thanks to Potom, they almost overcame Chovan. However, the score did not change.
The end of the duel was marked by several alternations and increasing nervousness on both sides. However, Slovan controlled the match, Sereď did not let in significant chances and finally won with the closest difference.
Juraj Jarábek, Serede coach: “We were ready for Slovan, he is the champion of Slovakia. We knew that he would change the line-up, but we must not get the goal we got in the 45th second.
We had a hard time getting ahead, there was a lack of quality in the final and pre-final phase. In the second half, we made changes to the wings, we got into a chance, especially through Potoma.
I have to praise the boys, they fought, they were aggressive and they enjoyed the match. We wanted to settle, we failed, we move on. “
Vladimír Weiss senior, Slovan coach: We knew that it would not be an easy match for us, that coach Jarábek has good discipline and Sereda players will fight, which was also confirmed. Exactly what happened to us at home with Trenčín, we scored a quick goal, satisfaction came.
We had no choice but Henty’s shot, only a few centers. Sereď fought and has player number ten, who is creative. Every match is difficult for us now, we have a lot of travel, it is not an excuse, but a fact.
We don’t have twenty players, but only eighteen, now Aben is 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. “
