Bohemians started more actively and had the first chance after six minutes. Berana's spot-kick ended up just wide of the post. In the eighth minute, after a turn from a difficult position in the box, Puškáč of the home team made a successful shot with the help of the far post, but according to the referees, he helped himself with the kick and the goal was therefore disallowed.
After a quarter of an hour, the referees did not recognize the goal either side. Granečný hit the rebound from the corner from behind the goal post, but in the end he could not celebrate the second hit in his league career. The home goalkeeper Jedliček's view was blocked by his half-brother striker Řezníček and the referee judged the situation to be offside.
The best scorer of the league season did not make it even in the 25th minute, when he ended the break with only a weak attempt. On the opposite side, the home striker Puskáč was injured shortly afterwards and had to give way to Prekop. On increasingly difficult terrain, fights and inaccuracies increased and the spectators did not see another chance until the break.
Five minutes after the change of sides, Prague opened the scoring. After a long combination, Jánoš transferred the ball to the right side to Köstl, who from the first passed in front of the goal, where Prekop beat goalkeeper Berkovce from close range with the help of the front post. The Slovak striker scored in the Czech league only for the second time.
In the 58th minute, Köstl could have added insurance, but his header from Čermák's cross was blocked by Berkovec. The Praguers seemed to be in control, but in the 70th minute the visitors equalized after a quick move. Texl stretched through the middle of the field, passed to Řezníček, who got rid of the opponent and headed expertly towards the post. With his 14th goal in the league season, the 34-year-old striker has already surpassed his previous record from 2015/16 and leads the scoring table by three goals.
The “kangaroos” could have taken the lead back in the 88th minute, but Prekop he only hit Berkovce with turns and did not score his second goal in the match. Bohemians in Ďolíček did not lose in the league with Brno for the tenth time in a row. Otherwise, the people of Prague confirmed that they are not doing very well at home this year, they won only 10 of the total 29 points there. However, they beat Pardubice there as a visiting team.
