June 8th, 2014 - Blatec 9 Město Libavá 0

June 8, 2014
III třída - Olomouc - 9th division
Blatec 9 Město Libavá 0
Att - 45

Blatec has around 500 people and is very much a satellite community of Olomouc because it is only 8km south.  The local football team has bounced around the 8th and 9th divisions for the past few years.  I actually saw a pre-season match in Blatec back in 2002.

The football pitch is located only 100m from the train stop, which makes it a perfect place to visit if you are travelling by train.  However, my main reason for visiting was to see Město Libavá.  Going into the game they had lost all previous 24 games, and I was hoping they could get a surprise result.  Obviously, that did not happen.  I have seen worse teams than Libavá, so I am not sure how they have not picked up at least one point this season.  They have a young, athletic team, but they do seem to be lacking some tactical play, even at this level.  Their keeper had a fantastic game, and received little or no defensive help all game.

On a side note, Město Libavá lost last weekend, and finished the season with a record of 0-0-26.
