Sparta defeated Teplice 2:1 in their last league match in 2016. Michal Kadlec and David Lafata scored the goals for the home side and Sparta claimed the third spot in the league table ahead of the upcoming winter break.

Daniel Holzer got injured in the last match in Hradec Králové, but Aleš Čermák, who finally recovered from a muscle injury, was ready in the starting line-up. Also Bičík, Zahustel and Sáček were available as subs.

Sparta had a tough job with Teplice and had to work hard to create their chances. David Lafata was the main man – he knocked the ball down for Mareček, whose volley was saved by Teplice’s goalkeeper Grigar. Then the captain threatened himself, heading the ball towards the net after a free kick, only to get denied by the keeper once again.

Tomáš Grigar, former Sparta player, however made a mistake. After a corner, Michal Kadlec got way higher than the keeper and opened the score with a header. It was Michal’s first goal since the summer, when he re-joined Sparta after his successful spells abroad.

Grigar conceded for the second time after twelve minutes of play in the second half. Pulkrab pressed the opposition’s defender, won the ball, set David Lafata free and the captain scored from a breakaway comfortably.

The second half finally broke Teplice and Sparta were in control of the match. Juliš and Mustedanagič both fired over the bar in their chances. In the final moments of the match, Vaněček actually scored Teplice’s first to cut Sparta’s lead in half, but it was already too late for the opponents.
