Win 4-0 over SC Horn
Sparta planned two pre-season duels on Wednesday. The first against the Austrian SV Horn. We played the match with young team and won 4-0 after goals by Karabec, Havelka, Souček and Kozák.
Head coach Václav Kotal used also this time formation 3-5-2. Filip Souček, who wore a captain's armband, played for the first time in a red jersey and performed a good performance in the middle of the field.
Unfortunately, Matěj Polidar was injured in the beginning and had to be replaced by Filip Šilhart.
In the 26th minute, Adam Karabec took the ball on the right side, and scored by a cross shot near the back post. The second goal for 17-year-old player in the pre-season.
Immediately after that, the Austrians had a great chance to equalize. Schnopp got through our defence and face to face to Dominic Holec tried to chop him, but also overshot the goal.
Five minutes before the break Sparta showed a beautiful action. Fortelný got the ball thirty meters from the goal, ran to the box and passed to Havelka. He sent the ball to the goal from a long distance. Filip Havelka's first goal in the pre-season.
Nothing else happened in the first half. Sparta started the second half without any change. Four minutes before the end, Kozák passed in front of the box to Souček. Filip crowned a great performance by a beautiful shot near the left post, which ended in a net!
And a minute later, Kozák was a star again. This time he jumped on the great cross by Trávník and scored by a header. Sparta defeated SV Horn 4-0.
