Sparta drew 1-1 with Žilina in their last friendly of the winter pre-season. Michal Sáček scored the only goal for the home side, Žilina levelled the score in the final minutes of the match.

Costa started as the left back, Sáček replaced Čermák in the midfield and Lukáš Juliš played as the lone striker up front.

Žilina’s keeper Volešák made his first two big saves on efforts by Dočkal and Juliš, and then was almost beat, but Juliš headed the ball over the bar.

However in the 26th minute Volešák blocked Néstor’s shot and Michal Sáček scored an easy goal from a rebound to give Sparta the lead.

Néstor could double the lead with a wonderful scissor kick, but he only hit the crossbar.

David Lafata was close to adding Sparta’s second in the second half, but his volley was saved by Volešák. Filip Havelka presented himself with an amazing long-range shot, but hit the crossbar again.

And so the score changed on the other side. Haskič found a cross from the right in the box and tipped the ball past Bičík to level the score.

Both teams then had one good opportunity to score the game-winner. Škvarka missed the empty goal after Bičík missed it outside of the box, Volešák then made a good save on a shot by the captain.
