The Slovak offensive all-rounder scored his first goal in the Czech league.

Liberec took the lead back in just five minutes. He ended the exemplary break after passing substitute Ghali into the open goal of Tupta.

After Ryneš’s cross, Kubala made his mark with a header and with his seventh hit in the league, he equaled the team’s best scorer Vašulín.

In the next three minutes, the guests even turned the situation around. Kubala extended it to Trusa, who took the pass on the offside line and finished the escape accurately. The home team could have equalized, but substitute Rabušice was caught by goalkeeper Vízek. Votroci won in the league in Liberec for the first time since 1994.
