Draw 2-2 in Budějovice
Sparta gained a point with Dynamo České Budějovice after a 2-2 draw in the third league round and the first away match of the new season. It was 0-2 after the first half, Kanga and Tetteh equalized in the second half.
Coach Jílek made one change in the line-up after the duel with Jablonec. Costa replaced Radaković and was our captain.
České Budějovice had a huge opportunity in the second minute. It was Costa who made a mistake and Schranz went to Nita himself. He fired hard, but only to place where the Spartan goalkeeper was. Right at the beginning, good luck and great work by Nita!
In the fifth minute Schranz in the chance again. After a cross into the box Provod headed and his attempted went somewhere between three bars. Perhaps one of the Spartan defenders would have kicked ball out, but Schranz's headed the ball to the net and Dynamo took the lead.
Dynamo continued to play very actively and in the ninth minute had another opportunity. Costa turned the ball away from the box and Čavoš got the ball. His attempt flew closely to the post.
After a quarter of an hour came Sparta's first big chance. Plavšić crossed to the box and Libor Kozák finished in front of the goal. Unfortunately, his attempt went out of the three posts!
In the twenty-first minute Kanga put the ball through the defence and it seemed that Hašek could sent Kozák alone to the goal. But Staněk was fast and got to the ball first.
After half an hour, Hašek offered the ball to Kozák, whch had no time to prepare the ball and the home defence turned to the corner.
Another attempt was by Hložek, which went through two opponents in the middle of the field beautifully and then decided to shoot with his left. He missed…
At the end of the first half we were close to equalizing. After the corner by Kanga we had a great opportunity to score. Hložek probably got the ball to the net. The referee Hrubeš consulted the situation with the video for a few minutes, then he decided no goal. Probably because of the offside.
But that was not all. In the last action of the first half, the ball flew into the Sparta box, Hanousek fouled the opponent and it was a penalty. Jiří Kladrubský, the captain of České Budějovice, scored and Dynamo led by 2-0.
In the second half, Tetteh came to strengthen the Spartan offensive. He replaced Hašek.
Krejčí had the first chance at the start of the second half. He got a pass and fired in the box. But his attempt flew through the goal.
In the 49th minute came our first goal. Hložek offered the ball in front of the box to Kanga. He was not in the ideal position, but shoot and sent the ball beautifully from the bar to the net!
Almost immediately we survived a great chance of home team. The Spartans failed the attack, lost the ball, and two home players went advanced against Matěj Hanousek. It all ended with Mršić's shot to the crossbar!
The home team was still dangerous. Ledecký headed in the 63rd minute after the cross by the left side. But he missed the goal.
Dynamo had several corner kicks and after one at them Schranz headed to the empty goal Nita, moved quickly and hit the ball out of the goal!
The equalizer came eight minutes before the end. Kanga placed the ball at Tetteh's head and our striker scored.
