September 1st, 2009 - Czech Cup 2nd Round - Rousínov 0 Tescoma Zlín 3

September 1st, 2009 - Czech Cup 2nd round
Rousínov 0 Tescoma Zlín 3
Admission: 40kc
Attendance: 500 (away support of 12)
Game rating: 3/10

Rousínov is a small town of 5,000 people roughly located 20kc to the northeast of Brno. They are currently playing in the Divize D, which is one of the five regional fourth divisions. Zlín are spending their first year back in the 2nd division, after a number of years in the top flight.

The stadium is located a few minutes walk north of the town centre, and it is easy enough to find. I suspect it has had better days, as it is now in much need of renovation. However, it does have a lot of 'character'. I would think if Rousínov ever got promoted to the third division, they would have to fix up the stadium.

As it goes with Cup matches, it is either hit or miss. This one was definitely a miss. All of the goals Zlín scored were quite soft, and Rousínov probably felt hard done by them. The biggest difference between the teams, was attacking. Rousínov could compete at the back, but they lacked imagination, and skill up front to penetrate the Zlín back four.

With the win Zlín now moves on to the 3rd round which is scheduled to be played on September 23rd.
