Souček took his place in the middle of the field. Laco Krejčí started on the left wing. Hložek, Štetina, Čelůstka, Kozák, LK37 did not play due to health reasons.
Less than a minute after the kick-off, Lukáš Juliš caught pass on Köstl and he run alone to the goal. He scored after four months and it was his 12th league hit.

In the end of the first half, Sparta had a great chance. Dočkal sent a ball from a free kick, Hancko headed but Le Giang stopped the ball. Subsequently, the referee whistled an offensive foul. Halftime score was 1-1.
After an hour of play, David Pavelka jumped on Dočkal's corner and his header ended in the goal! He gave himself the best gift for Tuesday's 30 birthday.
Wiesner received the fourth yellow card for a while and it was clear that we miss him in the game against Brno. Twelve minutes before the end, Souček saw 8th yellow card and he is also out.
