Football match AC Sparta Praha – Partizan Belgrade on Sport1
TODAY! | redakce | print opinions
The Prague club AC Sparta Prague is waiting for the first match of the key double match on Thursday, February 17, which will decide whether Sparta will advance to the eighth finals of the Conference League. In addition to the Sparta duel, Sport1 and Sport2 also broadcast other attractive matches from the UEFA European League playoffs and will also offer a traditional pre-match studio with interesting guests.
Belgrade has long been an unpopular destination for European clubs. That is why it is crucial for Sparta to create a comfortable level in front of the retaliation, which is on the program for the week, in Thursday’s match at Letná. A possible extension in a hostile atmosphere at the Partizan stadium could be a problem for Pavel Vrba’s team. In European competitions, the rule of a goal scored on the opponent’s field no longer applies and the decision will be made in all spring doubles simply by the sum of goals. The probability of extension will thus generally increase significantly.
Partizan currently leads the Serbian league without a single defeat, however, the form in the basic group of the Conference League was not so exemplary. The Belgrade club managed to beat only Cypriot Famagusta and Estonian Flora in two matches. Sparta coach Pavel Vrba can thus look for inspiration in clubs that managed to mature in Partizan in the autumn, or in his former workplace Viktoria Plzeň, which managed to eliminate the leagues from the European years about three years ago.
The match at Prague’s Letná starts on Thursday 17 February at 9 pm and will be offered live on Sport1. However, the pre-match studio starts at 18:00 and in addition to the Sparta-Partizan match, it will also focus on other duels that Sport1 and Sport2 will offer during the rich Thursday program.
