Sparta will not win MOL Cup again
Sparta lost the MOL Cup semi-final and will not add second cup victory in a row. We did not use our chances, Slavia did and the result is a 0-3 defeat.
Spatra's head coach Pavel Vrba sent Milan Heča to our goal, as well as in previous MOL Cup matches. Wiesner started on the right side of the defence, Sáček, Pavelka and Hložek operated in the middle of the field. Juliš was our striker.
