Sparta earn only one point for a 2-2 draw in Zlín. With strikes by Šural and Janko they managed to turn the score around, but conceded a late equaliser in the additional time.

Martin Frýdek returned to the line-up as well as Karavaev and Néstor. Kaya was missing due to disciplinary reasons from the Junior league match earlier.

After Karavaev’s chance, it were Zlín to open the score. Ekpai finished off a quick counter attack and beat Dúbravka with a nice on the far post.

Sparta answered back nine minutes later – Bačo tackled Šural down in front of the box. Šural took the free kick himself and levelled the score with a wonderful shot which hit the top corner.

Costa threatened twice in the second half, but his first shot just missed the goal and his header was cleared by the home side’s defence.

Marc Janko came on the pitch and put Sparta in front only six minutes later, tipping in a header by Josef Šural. However, Sparta could not hold on to their lead until the final whistle and conceded a late equaliser in the additional time.
