No goals in derby No. 296
Sparta did not celebrate victory in Eden in the end of the season. Although both teams had number of interesting situations, we did not see the goal and the last match of the 2019/2020 season ended by a 0-0 draw.
Head coach Václav Kotal used anticipated line-up in the derby. The biggest surprise was prepared at the top of the attack, where Benjamin Tetteh replaced Libor Kozák, who was fighting for the crown for best league shooters.
The first huge chance of the match came in the seventh minute. Stanciu passed to Tecl, he found Masopust in an even more dangerous position in front of the goal. But before he could fire, Hancko stopped him by sliding tackle.
Slavia was better at this time. Coufal ended another big chance with a shot and hit the bar of Heča's goal.
Sparta's big chance came after half an hour of play. Tetteh caught Ševčík's wrong pass and went on Kolář. He had the opportunity to pass on the right and left side, but he decided to shoot. Frydrych jumped into his shot and got it hard in the head.
Practically immediately, Hanousek went to a counterattack, passed to Tetteh, who returned the ball to the box and Hanousek fired. Kolář stopped his good attempt.
And then Tetteh had the third chance in a short time. After Karlsson's pass, he went on Kolář from the side, but he overshot the goal.
The Slavia defence was unexpectedly open at that moment, Karlsson went to the next break. But home time didn’t let him move forward.
The second half also started with a pressure from Slavia. After a corner, Masopust shot inside the box and aimed near the post, but Heča was there in time.
Another huge chance for Slavia came soon. From the left, the ball flew into the box, Masopust finished and Hancko stopped the ball on the goal line.
In the 65th minute, our goal construction rang for the second time. Tecl headed to crossbar, then the ball went to the ground and out!
The match didn't offer a match anymore and the 296th derby in Eden ended with a draw. We are looking forward to see you in the next season!
