Another crucial battle was waiting for Ferencváros’ football team today: after winning 2-0 over Slavia Praha at the Groupama Arena last week, today our team ran onto the pitch in Prague. Slavia has suffered only two defeats so far this year, once from Arsenal and the other time from our team last week. This did not mean that we could expect an easy game, rather the opposite. We stood against a heavy and extremely motivated opponent, where we needed to play with five defenders. As expected, Slavia dominated the match and gained a significant advantage in ball possession. In the 19th minute it was Tokmac though who was closest to scoring: he ran one-on-one to the keeper, but he managed to block the Fradi striker’s shot.
In the 36th minute Slavia managed to take the lead – the Czech team finished a well-played attack. This goal only made the pressure on Fradi higher and most of the second half was spent on Fradi’s side. Our team defended the goal as one, blocked the attacks and fought for the ball. To make it even more difficult, Civic received his second yellow card in the 85th minute which meant that we needed to play 10 minutes with one less player. This however did not shake our team that could stand still till the end: although we suffered a 1-0 defeat today, as an aggregate result, Ferencváros won 2-1 and advanced to the Champions League’s play-off.
