Sparta earned only a single point in a Sunday night drama in Liberec, despite leading 1-0 while the home side went down to nine men.

For the first time this season, Andrea Stramaccioni made no changes in the team sheet since the last match. Only Josef Šural returned from injury, starting on the bench.

Slovan started the match off better and created their biggest chance of the first half only five minutes into the match, as Coufal crossed the ball from the right, but Malinský could not hit the net from a good shooting position.

Sparta started to pick up the pace later and soon opened the score. Martin Frýdek scored from a lovely cross by Ćivić from the left side, tipping the ball past the keeper.

Both players did it again minutes later, but Frýdek headed it just wide this time. Lafata’s shot from the final minutes of the first half ended with a similar success.

Slovan seemed strong in the beginning of the first half, but soon got into trouble, as both Kúdela and Kerbr were sent off after being booked for the second time in the match.

But the home side’s pace increased, Slovan were rewarded with a dangerous free kick. Potočný took it, Koubek dropped his shot and Breite tipped it in to level the score.

Ćivić then got sent off, too, sending Sparta down to ten men. Sparta put Slovan under a pressure in the final minutes of the match, but Liberec managed to hold on to their lead until the final whistle.
