The pressure was enough to equalize the score to 3-3 against Mladá Boleslav
Viktoria played the 28th-round match of the ePojisteni.cz League against Mladá Boleslav and it was the second time Petr Bolek had appeared in the gate in the season 2016/2017. The second change in the starting line-up was Erik Janža as a left defender.
The first situation that made the fans excited happened on 11 minutes. Erik Janža executed a free kick that flew to the 18-yard box and Lukáš Hejda headed it, unfortunately, only above the crossbar. 1 minute later Hejda had an effort on goal again but the goalkeeper stopped him. Viktorians locked their opponent in the penalty area, however, it was Mladá Boleslav who score the first goal. Vladislav Levin kicked the rebounded ball and scored – 0-1. On about 30 minutes Ivanschitz attempted to equalize the score but the ball flew off the goal. After that Viktoria had a period of time that lacked any goal chances until 41 minutes when Hořava shot on goal but failed. Petržela´s header flew close to the right upright but without effect. The half-time result was more hopeful for the guests.
The coach Bečka sent two new faces on the pitch – Andreas Ivanschitz and Jan Kopic were substituted by Michael Krmenčík and Václav Pilař. On 52 minutes Krmenčík twice had an effort on goal. At first, he received Pilař´s excellent pass but his attempt lacked a shooting accuracy and then he headed the ball off the gate. On 58 minutes Kysela appeared completely undefended in front of Viktoria´s gate and excellently placed the ball behind the goalkeeper Bolek – 0-2. Zdeněk Bečka quickly made the third substitution and on 62 minutes Janža was replaced by Tomáš Hájek. 3 minutes later Jánoš was given too much space in the penalty area and scored for the third time – 0-3. Viktoria´s response came soon after that. Hájek crossed the ball to the 6-yard box and Krmenčík headed the ball behind the goal line – 1-3. Viktorians felt the chance and they increased the pace of the game. On 79 minutes Petržela passed the ball towards the gate and Krmenčík added the second goal – 2-3. At the end of the match Lukáš Hejda scored again! Viktoria´s pressure caused the final result 3-3.
