Commentary

Both teams were welcomed in great atmosphere. In 8th minute, Kubik´s shot was deflected by AS defense. In 10th minute, the same player shot wide. In 32nd minute, we created the biggest opportunity of the first half but Bero hit only the post. On the other side, Zrelak tried to lob Semrinec with no success. The first half was ended up by Salata´s wide header.

In 53rd minute, Kubik found Zrelak, who passed Semrinec and sent ball to empty net – 0:1. The coach Sevela tried to boost our team with two substitutions and sent on the pitch Maierhofer and Schet. Austrian forward paid off for the trust with an equalizer, when from few metres he gave no chance to Mucha – 1:1. In 87th minute, the ball got the far post after corner kick and Gino van Kessel was on the right place in right time – 2:1. In injury time, Slovan sent all the players into the box including the goalkeeper. After few won battles, the ball came to van Kessel and Dutch winger confirmed the victory for AS with a shot to empty net – 3:1. 

Reactions

Nikodimos Papavasiliou, tréner Slovana: "Je to pre nás obrovské sklamanie, pretože sme mali vo finále dlho navrch. Chýbal tomu druhý gól, ktorým by sme poistili náš náskok. Napriek tomu som na hráčov hrdý za to, čo predviedli. V lige sa ešte pokúsime zabojovať o titul, hoci to už nemáme vo svojich rukách."

Martin Ševela, tréner Trenčína: "Som šťastný, že sme otočili proti kvalitnému súperovi skóre a máme ďalšiu trofej. Striedania našu hru oživili a ani po vyrovnaní sme nemysleli na remízu, ale chceli sme vyhrať. Hnal som hráčov dopredu a podarilo sa. Rozhodla tímovosť, išli sme na dno síl a aj šťastena sa k nám otočila tvárou. Veľké oslavy nebudú a ideme ďalej, pretože ešte potrebujeme splniť náš druhý cieľ a získať titul."
