Second pre-season victory
Sparta won the first pre-season match during the Austrian training camp. We defeated ND Gorica 3-1 in Slovenian Bled. So, it’s second win after 5-0 victory over Táborsko in Prague. Lukáš Juliš has already scored three goals in the pre-season. The best league shooter Libor Kozák added the first hit.
Head coach Václav Kotal used also this time 3-5-2 formation. A new Spartan Ondřej Čelůstka started in the red for the first time. Ondra ran out with the captain's armband.
In the 14th minute came the first dangerous situation. Hanousek got to the box and found Adam Hložek by great cross. Adam unfortunately headed over the goal.
Then came the first goal. In the 21st minute, Bořek Dočkal beautifully crossed to Libor Kozák and he scored his first goal in the new season.
Ten minutes before the break Michal Trávník fouled Begić in the box. Jermol took the ball and sent it to the left post from his point of view. But Florin Nita was there also and bounced the ball off.
No more happened in the first half. Ten new men in the red run to the pitch. David Lischka was the only one who stayed.
Lukáš Juliš came back from loan in Olomouc with a great style. Five minutes after the break, he took Adam Karabec's pass and fired out of the box. The shot went exactly near to the left post and the goalkeeper did not stop it. So, 2-0 for us.
In the 63rd minute Lukáš Juliš had a fantastic opportunity to add one more hit. This time goalkeeper was better face to face Lukáš. Five minutes later, Sparta got the first goal in the pre-season. Aliaga got in front of Dominik Holec and got the ball behind him.
Matěj Polidar had a fantastic opportunity to add another goal, but also this time the Slovenian goalkeeper Marjanović was successful.
Fortunately, Sparta didn't have to regret it. Four minutes before the end, Plavšić run on the left wing, got to the goal line and found Juliš by a great pass. Julda scored the third goal in the pre-season by a great technical shot near the back post!
No more happened and Sparta won the second pre-season match before the next season
