Votes before the match:

Pavel Horváth (assistant coach of Pilsen): “It may happen that the win in Brno will be a turning point for us, which will show us a better direction than in the match with Hradec. Budějovice basically always play the same way. They have a permanent core of players, even though they changed things up in the cup with Hradec. The only match on they won in the spring. We'll see what line-up their coaches decide on. We certainly don't want to lose points at home and we have to beat Budějovice.”

Tomáš Zápotočný (assistant coach of Budejovice): “We are going to Pilsen with the intention of performing well and making amends for the failed home match against Liberec. There will certainly be some changes, other players are ready and waiting for their chance. We are looking forward to the match in Pilsen, nobody will expect anything from us .

Votes before the match:

Jiří Saňák (assistant coach of Olomouc) : “We must approach the match with the same concentration as in the previous matches. We must not succumb to the fact that Hradec is an easier opponent than Slovácko was with Sparta. Hradec has the same points as us, is tenacious and unpleasant, which he proved with the win in Pilsen. We must take everything very responsibly. If we manage to win, entering the spring will be evaluated favorably. But we don't want to put ourselves under any pressure.”

Stanislav Hejkal (assistant coach Hradec): “Olomouc works well defensively. They secure themselves, they have things well put together and thought out tactically. Not only the striker Chytil will be a danger, Růsek is also in excellent form. These two are a great offensive force. In Pilsen and against Bohemka we got a goal very early from the set piece. So we want to see the start in Olomouc, that will be the alpha and omega of our performance.”

Voices before the match:

Pavel Hoftych (coach M. Boleslavi): “We evaluated the loss at Sparta. We have to improve productivity and continue in a similarly active game. Pardubice have a well-composed squad with very skilled boys and the match against them will not be easy, but we are playing at home and we need three points. We have a well-prepared and positive team.”

Radoslav Kováč (coach Pardubice): “We know that the Mladá Boleslav team is high-quality, very experienced and has several excellent individuals in its midst. At the top, they have skilled players like Ladra, Kušej and Žitný. We don't even have to talk about the genius of Marko Matějovský and let's not forget others like Škoda. He is waiting difficult game for us, but we are aware that we need to get as many points as possible from each game. We will go to Boleslav with that as well. We have players coming back who could not play against Slavia because of the loan agreement. On the other hand, others for the same reason they are relegated, but we have to deal with it.”

Votes before the match:

Jaroslav Veselý (Bohemians coach): “If someone had told us a year ago that we would be fourth after 18 rounds, we wouldn't have believed him very much. It can be seen that we have come a certain way since last year's play-off, that we have risen. I never fly in the clouds, but to say that we do not want to maintain the current position , would be cowardly. Finishing in the top six would be a great success for Bohemka, but there is a long way to go. Now Sparta and other difficult matches await us.”

Luboš Loučka< /strong> (Sparta assistant coach): “The win over Boleslaví was an encouragement for us. I think that the upcoming match will have a lot of influence on the weather, the terrain on Bohemka will probably not be the best. It probably won't be very good to play some nice football, it will be about deployment, fights, second balls. Of course, I'm not saying that we don't want to show our combination football, but I think it will be more difficult now. For me, it will be more of a war than some beautiful football. We are chasing the first two teams in front of us. It doesn't matter if we play Bohemka or another opponent. We have a clear goal and that is three points in every game.”

Interesting facts:

– Sparta has lost only one of the last 30 league matches with Bohemians, 2 of the last 3 head-to-head but the duels ended in a 1:1 draw

– Sparta lost only one of the last 17 rounds and won in 4 of the last 5 league matches

– Sparta won only one of the last 3 away in the league duels and scored only 15 of the total 36 points there in the season
