As a rule, I find the original Russian announcers better, more involved in the game than "disinterested" announcers even in my native language. Watching a Slovak team playing against a Russian team, with the game being announced by 2 Czech announcers, seems particularly absurd; I'll try to avoid that in future, and will prefer the "away" broadcast over a boring pair of "unbiased" Czechs. What's particularly bad is that 2 Czech cable TV sports stations bought the rights for broadcasting Slovan games in Slovakia. I think I'll prefer watching the Russian streams instead, for the proper atmosphere, even if that means lower picture quality compared to a regular TV broadcast.

Just for fun, below you can compare 2 Russian announcers' style during yesterday's great game of Slovan vs. SKA Petersburg (4-2). The first announcer is from St. Petersburg TV and is a "homer" for SKA, moans and aahs for each goal allowed, whereas the second announcer openly celebrates each and every goal scored, no matter by whom.
