May 9th, 2010 - MSFL (3rd level)
Dosta Bystrc 0 Znojmo 2
Game rating: 6/10
Distance travelled: 150km
Bystrc is a part of Brno, and has a population of around 24,000. It is located very close to the Brno reservoir, which means it is a popular destination for locals during the summer time. As for the town itself, there isn't too much to see. Although, the Brno Zoo is located in Bystrc.
The pitch is very easy to reach. You just need to take tram 1 from the main train station and get off at the 'Zoo' stop. All in all, it takes about 30 minutes to get to from the train station. From the tram stop, walk along the foot path beside the river for about 200m. You'll see the stadium on the left. The stadium is quite simple, but compact. There is a stand which has a capacity of a few hundred people.
Bystrc spent one season in the Czech 2nd division a few years back, but now they are struggling to avoid relegation to the 4th division. The visitors on the day, Znojmo, look to be strong favourites to win promotion to the 2nd division for next season.
Znojmo played the perfect away game today, and basically shut down Bystrc to only a few chances on goal. It was clear that Znojmo had better players, and they were a step above their opponents.
On a side note, Bystrc has a small group of Ultras, which added to the atmosphere. One of which decided to run on to the field naked during the last few minutes of the match.
