Mladá Boleslav succeed in Sweden

IF Elfsborg 1-3 FK Mladá Boleslav
The Czech side trailed in Sweden but then scored three late goals to record their first Group C victory.

FK Mladá Boleslav came from a goal down against IF Elfsborg to record their first win in UEFA Cup Group C.

Comeback
Swedish challengers Elfsborg, who had only one point from two games, had taken a first-half lead through Mathias Svensson in the 31st minute but Stefan Ishizaki missed a chance to make it 2-0 when he saw his penalty saved by goalkeeper Petr Pižanowski. Substitute Ivo Táborský equalised in the 67th minute and fellow forward Alexandre Mendy put the Czech outfit ahead before Petr Voríšek converted a late free-kick to seal the victory. Mladá Boleslav had lost their only previous match 2-1 at home to Villarreal CF.

Elfsborg on top
Elfsborg began the game as the brighter team and James Keene had a shot from distance blocked by Pižanowski. The early dominance of Magnus Haglund's side paid off when Ishizaki broke down the right and picked out Svensson in the area to place the ball to the right of Pižanowski. A second goal seemed likely when Mladá Boleslav midfielder Tomáš Hrdlička brought down Martin Andersson in the box but Ishizaki's penalty down the middle was stopped by Pižanowski.

Game turns
The visitors to Sweden were allowed back into the match in the second half. And with their first real opportunity they equalised when Milan Kopic supplied Táborský to head past goalkeeper Johan Wiland. Now Mladá Boleslav had the momentum and with eleven minutes left they stole the initiative as Voríšek's incisive pass was touched in by Mendy. Deep into stoppage time Voríšek curled in a free-kick from the edge of the area to secure the points ahead of next week's visit of AEK Athens FC. Elfsborg, who are all but out, end their campaign at Villarreal on 20 December.
