Sparta defeated Tianjin Quanjian 4-1 in the friendly match in Marbella thanks to goals by Tal Ben Chaim, David Hovorka and Martin Frýdek.

Sparta scored two goals within three minutes between 23rd and 26th minute both scored by Tal Ben Chaim who had a fine match against Tianjin.

After another three minutes, Tal was free in the penalty area after the pass by Zahustel and he scored his second goal of the match.

Two goals were scored in the second half as well and Ben Chaim added an assist to his two goals from the first half as he moved from the own half faster and he found Martin Frýdek before open goal after the fast counter-attack. Frýdek scored with the header.
