    Cagey start from both sides compared to the early goals of the first leg. Good atmosphere though... and just as I type this it's a goal for Slavia. Ngadeu puts it away on the corner and the Eden is going nuts.

    Slavia looking fairly confident going forward after the goal, still a lot of time, but Sevilla looking much more frantic than they did in Spain only managing a couple of low shots from outside the box. I'd say this feels more 50-50 compared to my pre-match thoughts (Sevilla need 2 goals as it stands)

    Sevilla equalized on a penalty before half. It was a penalty that is not always called as there was no scoring opportunity, but there was contact so still correct

    It also never would have happened if Kudela kept his head up instead of ducking the ball.

    HT 1-1... so basically back where we started with 45 minutes to go, Slavia have the away goal advantage, but aren't in the clear yet.

    Sevilla don't look as dangerous at all as they did in Spain though, so still thinking about 50-50

    Wow... about 10 seconds into the 2nd half Sevilla takes down Boril in the box on a long ball for no reason, and Soucek converts the penalty. 2-1 Slavia

    On replay, Boril went down quite easy, still Sevilla defender (actually it was Navas) should know better in that situation

    And it's 2-2, a fantastic volley from distance by Munir. It's quite literally back to 0-0 with just over 30 minutes to go.

    Admittedly, while social media is going nuts about this match neither team really seams like they deserve 2 goals having watched.It's a fairly tame match, but what chances there have been were well taken

    Last 15 and match is opening up as neither side wants extra time.

    Sevilla are the better team and a goal for them is more or less a sure win at this point, but for whatever reason they look more timid last few minutes. I'd think coming from behind twice they'd be flying.

    Kolar just saved Slavia's hopes, he's actually been quite good this tie. 5 minutes to go and this feels like it can go either way.

    A lot of weak fouls being called, and Slavia just had a breakaway killed by one

    180 minutes wasn't enough. Going into extra time

    Soucek just can't get enough on it to beat Vaclik on a corner early in extra time

    Sevilla make no mistake on their first chance of extra time, Slavia have 20 minutes to force penalties... and they just scored, Van Buren from a tight angle. :eek:

    No matter what happens in the next 15 minutes, Slavia has increased our league's perception a lot in this tie. I had thought that away goals stop counting in ET, but it seems they do so Slavia need one more.

    Vaclik, just denied Soucek again.

    Soucek also just got booked for a dive that I thought might be a penalty. Definitely looks like a penalty, but no VAR

    SLAVIA!!!!! last minute of extratime 4-3, Eden sounds like they just won the cup!

    Best match of the whole tournament, and a huge win for Slavia into the quarterfinals.

    Slavia will play one of: Arsenal, Chelsea, Napoli, Valencia, Frankfurt, Benfica or Villareal

    While Benfica or Frankfurt would have been better from a standpoint of advancement, the Slavia team got their wish with an English opponent (although Arsenal was preferred due to Cech). It also creates a chance to decide if Alex Kral or David Luiz looks more like Sideshow Bob.

    Plzen are continuing to collapse since their big win against Slavia in February having lost on the road to Teplice this weekend. Slavia took care of business with no Sevilla victory hangover, so they are now 9 pts clear with just a few matches remaining in the season's first phase.

    Sparta kept their streak going with a late comeback against Olomouc (who have also been improved since the winter break), although they did so with the benefit of 2 penalties in 5 minutes which regardless of veracity will provoke all non-Sparta fans to scream favoritism.

    In 2. Liga, Brno blew a 2-0 halftime lead against league leading C. Budejovice :thumbsdown:, the guys from Zbrojovokast (a Zbrojovka Brno podcast) summed it up accurately.

    I'll give a rare (possibly first ever) update/accolade to a Czech women's team as the Slavia Zeny are in the Women's Champions League Quarterfinals for the 2nd year in a row. Where as last year they sort of backed in via a weak draw and were promptly beaten 6-1 by their first real competition.

    This year they beat a tough team in the R16 and are level 1-1 after the first leg against heavily favored Bayern Munich, thanks to this goal (of the season) by a very promising young player named Katerina Svitkova:
