What a night at Letná! Sparta were 1-0 down early in the match, but thanks to a fantastic second half and three goals scored, they beat their city rivals Slavia 3-1!

David Lafata replaced Lukáš Juliš up front, and Sparta were also missing Lukáš Vácha, who was sidelined with an injury.

However, Sparta did not start well, as Škoda found a redirected corner kick and shot the ball right past Bičík – only six minutes into the match!

Sparta had not given up though, creating a constant pressure, possessing the ball on Slavia’s half for most of the time. However, the chances were not coming easily. David Lafata was centimetres short of heading the ball in the biggest one of them, after Dočkal’s cross from a free kick.

The pressure seemed even bigger in the second half, but the goals finally came after almost an hour of play. Slavia GK Berkovec tipped Lafata’s header to the post, but the captain scored from a rebound with another header!

Sparta were on top. Šural’s header from a corner seemed to go just wide, but Costa – waiting on the far post – gave Berkovec absolutely no chance and scored Sparta’s second.

Only minutes later, Sparta showed a quick counter attack, Krejčí crossed the ball to the other side and Ondřej Zahustel scored his first goal for Sparta – 3-1!

Two-goal lead was enough for Sparta, as they managed to keep Slavia far from their goal and finally could celebrate a valuable win in the Prague derby.
