Only a draw with Dynamo
Sparta didn’t enter to the last part of the autumn season with victory. We played birthday match against České Budějovice in special jerseys and tied 3-3. Our goals scored by Kanga, Plavšić and Tetteh.
Coach Václav Jílek made two changes in the line-up after the last duel in Jablonec. Guélor Kanga returned to the squad after being booked and Georges Mandjeck replaced Ladislav Krejčí in the middle of the field.
Unfortunately, in the seventh minute Dynamo scored from the first chance. Mandjeck lost the ball in the middle and the guests went to the break two-to-one. They combined through and Schranz finished into an empty goal.
The equalizer could come quickly. After the cross from the right side Kanga got to the ball. The shot was good but Drobný was fast and bounced the ball off.
In the 28th minute, Sparta hit after a long passage without a chance. Trávník crossed, Adam Hložek got to the ball and sent it to the net. But VAR cancelled the goal.
Another important moment came in the 34th minute. Novák fouled Kozák in the box and referee ordered a penalty. Kanga uncompromisingly scored!
But then came Dynamo again, Mandjeck fouled near our box and Čolić sent the ball to the net by the free kick.
After 58 minutes Plavšić replaced Vindheim and that was a sub! After few seconds, Kanga sent the ball to Plavsić which shot from the long distance and equalized!
Twenty minutes before the end Adam Hložek showed a beautiful individual action from the side of the box, got through two defenders and fired. But the ball hit only the post!
After 77 minutes, guest went to the lead again. Budějovice got out of our pressure and untacked Kaya failed the long ball and Ledecký did not hesitate and scored.
But Sparta quickly equalized again. Frýdek passed to running Plavšić, who immediately served the ball in front of the goal, where Tetteh finished!
At the end Sparta had a pressure, forced guests to fouls and Lischka shot hardy to Drobný. Nothing more happened and we tied 3-3 with Dynamo.
