Trnava captain Martin Mikovič for Guram Kašia from Slovan.
The footballers of the Bratislava squad still have vivid memories of the piece stolen from them by their opponent in May. The Slovakian Cup was blown away at the Tehelno poli stadium and the home side lost the double they were counting on. Only now do they get a chance to repay him for the loss (1:2).
The match from a year ago had a scandalous course.
After just fifteen minutes, after the antics of the fans who invaded the field, referee Glova interrupted him and immediately ended the game prematurely. Slovan won 3:0 by default.
Since then, the opponents have met at the Trnava stadium, but in April, the guests’ fans were denied access. Now Slovan’s ultras are traveling by train to Trnava again, for the first time since the unfortunate events of October 2021.
They have 700 tickets available for their sector. They are sold by name only and the organizers announce strict controls. The match is marked as risky and the police are on standby.
They will escort the Slavists from the train station to the stadium, therefore they will close Kollárova Street and continuously evaluate the security situation.

The inhabitants of Trnava say goodbye to their fans for almost two months, they temporarily lose their house, because the turf in the stadium is replaced. The next five games await them away from home. They will perform at home again on November 11. They now rely even more on the strong support of the public.
“I believe we will take our chances, we will be efficient and with the help of the spectators we will break the game. For the cabin I can promise that we will leave everything in it,” defender Kristián Koštrna said at the In the Hall of the club’s fame program.

Slovan at the top of the table extends his lead and Trnava will try to slow it down so the competition doesn’t lose its lead. After the successful meeting, the opponents played three league matches in which only two goals were scored.
Spartak did not score, lost 0:1 twice, once a 0:0 draw was born. This season he has been doing quite well in terms of scoring, scoring at least one goal in each of his ten games.
Dovedna has 19, only Slovan (23) scored more. Will that be reflected in the derby?
