That goal gave them the confidence to push on until they finally restored parity on the 53rd minute courtesy a fine strike from Pavel Bucha.
Sensing danger, Prague also upped their game instantly and replied with a goal of their own through Guela Kanga. Now in the driving seat, they dominated the match and finally got an insurance goal on the 71st minute after Ghana’s Benjamin Tetteh had found the back of the net.
A late own goal from Michal Hubinek completed the 5-2 resounding win for Sparta Prague on the day to push them to 3rd on the League standings.
