Sparta were successful in their friendly against Žilina and recorded their second win of the winter pre-season. Josef Šural was the man of the match, as he had two goals and one assists in a 4-2 win over the Slovak team.

Šural was one of the two new faces in the starting line-up together with Ondřej Zahustel. Third winter signing, Ondřej Mazuch, started on the bench and played later in the match.

Sparta were starting slowly, and after Krejčí’s chance from the first minute, Žilina had two pretty good opportunities, but both Paur and Bénes missed Bičík’s net.

On the other side, Martin Frýdek missed the goal with his volley, and Žilina’s goalkeeper Volešák denied Šural with his first big save of the day.

Finally, in the 36th minute, Šural crossed the ball to the box, Krejčí found it unmarked and hit the ball right into the top corner. However, Žilina were back with a quick answer, as Paur lobbed the ball over Bičík and levelled the score.

Sparta scored the go-ahead goal in the final moments of the first half, as Krejčí crossed the ball from the left and Josef Šural scored his first goal for Sparta with a header.

The winter signing could add his second early in the second half, but Volešák made another brilliant stop on his finesse shot from the edge of the box. Žilina’s goalkeeper finally capitalized again right after Zahustel knocked the ball down in the box for Šural, who hit the empty net and scored his second of the day.

Bořek Dočkal then scored Sparta’s fourth with a low shot from the edge of the area, and even though Haskič cut Sparta’s lead in the final minutes of the match, there was no doubt about the winning team this time.
