Compared to the weekend match in České Budějovice, the starting lineup underwent seven changes. Only cap Robin Hranáč, midfielders Ibrahim Traoré and Lukáš Kalvach and striker Pavel Šulc remain. Kubek recognized that the first half did not go well, but Viktoria eventually won 2: 0 and a total of 4: 0 triumph at home clearly slipped into the final preliminary round.
For example, Adam Vlkanova had the opportunity. The 28-year-old attacking midfielder started the season at the base, but in the first three duels he was always removed before the 60th minute. Since then, he has either sat or replaced at the end. “Since the beginning of the year, both me and the team have done well. Now I am delighted that we are winning and I will wait for another chance,” said the man who came to West Bohemia from Hradec Králové at the beginning of the season the past
He even made his mark in Malta when he made the final 2-0 with a cross on the floor in the 70th minute. “I’m delighted for every goal, it will definitely help me,” he was clear.
From a slightly different position, the talented Jan Paluska made his debut in the European Cup. He played a full duel against Gzira. “positive feeling. I am 18 years old and I am very delighted for the chance. So are the guys who did not play much. I hope that I will continue to collect minutes,” believes the student from Pilsen.
The possibility of rotation definitely helped West Bohemia. Only sixteen players traveled to Malta to play, the rest remain in the Czech Republic and are dealing with more or less serious health problems. Stopper Václav Jemelka, back Libor Holík, winger Jhon Mosquera, striker Jan Kliment and substitute goalkeeper Martin Jedlička provided space.
“It was about giving the rest of the guys who started recently. It’s positive to rotate the lineup and take a break. There are a lot of quality players here, and that always helps,” explained Vlkanova.
“From the first impression, I did a positive job. nonetheless, there is definitely room for improvement,” Paluska assessed his performance. He is slowly getting used to the elite Pilsen team. “The boys helped me and I think I belong to the squad one hundred percent. I replay, I am delighted. for every opportunity,” he added.
Still, he was nervous before the start. Just like less than two weeks ago, when he made his debut in the Czech league in a 3:1 home win over Baník Ostrava. “But as soon as I stepped on the pitch, it subsided and I was ready and focused only on the match,” he described.
It remains to be seen when he will get another chance. Plzeň is waiting for two more English weeks, which means the league at the end of the week and in the middle of the preliminary final round of the League conference against Tobol Kostanaj from Kazakhstan.
