Sparta tied with Bundesliga side SC Freiburg 0-0 in the first friendly match of the winter pre-season in Sotogrande in Spain during the first training camp.

Sparta began the match with keeper Viktor Budinsky who return from his loan spell in Bohemians and winter signing Bogdan Vatajelu was a captain in his first match for the club.

David Lafata could open the score of the match but his header effort ended on the post and he was offside. Just only a two minutes later our right defender Karavaev tried to surprise Schwolow in Freiburg’s goal but the keeper was well prepared and he made good save to deny Karavaev’s shot.

There were another shots by Mustedanagič or Bulut but the shot of the first one was denied by Schwolow once again and Freiburg’s winger missed the target by decent shot from distance.

Sparta changed almost the whole squad for the second half time as only Holek and Budinsky remained on the pitch. Our second winter signing Néstor Albicha took the captain armband.

Freiburg decided to play very deep in the second half and they only waited for the counter-attacks but our defensive line worked very good and Freiburg had no chances in the second half.

But Sparta had no chances as well. Vácha dictated the tempo with Čermák and Havelka in the central midfield area but all the shots were well blocked and the game finished with goalless draw.

The team will stay in Spain until this Sunday when they come back to Prague for another part of the winter pre-season.
