Sparta started their winter pre-season with a huge 7-2 win over second division side Táborsko. Despite being 0-2 down in the first half, they managed to turn it around and win by five goals.

Táborsko opened the score in the second minute of play, when Vozihnoj took advantage of a slight misunderstanding in Sparta defence and hit the empty net.

Despite trailing early, Sparta gained control of the match. However, they struggled with converting their chances, as Ben Chaim, Juliš, Néstor and Karavaev all failed to level the score with their goal opportunities.

Shockingly, it were Táborsko to strike again. From a rare counter attack, it was Vozihnoj again to double the lead for the visitors.

Sparta, however, managed to level the score until the halftime. Ben Chaim cut Táborsko’s lead in half, scoring with a low shot from a counter attack, and Lukáš Juliš scored the equaliser with a wonderful long-range effort.

The performance in the second half was convincing enough, especially with young Václav Drchal up front, who came on the pitch early in the second, replacing Eldar Ćivić.

The striker scored his first goal for the A-team after only a minute on the pitch, tipping in a cross by Srdjan Plavšić. Four minutes later, he scored another from a rebound after Lafata’s shot. Shortly after he completed his hattrick, flying past the keeper from a breakaway and hitting the empty net – all of that in his first ten minutes on the pitch.

The captain David Lafata added the last two strikes, firing off a cross from the right by Srdjan Plavšić on both occasions, and set the final score.
