Viktoria did not play well at the beginning of the match. It could be nerves from the first spring match of the GL. On top of that Brno scored first goal. After that Viktoria shaked themselves and started to play their game. „You never gain power when you lose from the very beginning. You have to turn the match and it´s never easy. But I think we showed our team´s very strong if we made the match like this,“ the midfielder praised the team.
Viktorka went to Brno with desire to make up the home defeat from the start of the Gambrinus League. Coach Vrba warned before the match that Brno will be excited for the first spring match and they did fulfil it.

The total score between these two teams was 5:0 for Pavel Vrba´s team! „It´s a bit unbelievable but I´m glad we made it. We played both matches very well so it wasn´t coincidence we won,“ Stanislav Tecl claims.
