Glasgow – Coach Pavel Vrba, after the match of the penultimate 5th round of the European League group on the Rangers field, was saddened by the second collected goal of Sparta footballers after the big mistake of the tracker Filip Panák. The Prague coach described the goal as cheap and little seen. After losing 0: 2, the people of Letna lost the opportunity to advance to the spring elimination phase of the competition. However, they can still present themselves in the playoffs of the newly formed European Conference League, in which, according to Vrba, the young Spartans would gain valuable experience.
The Prague team lost from the 15th minute after Alfred Morelos’ goal. The Colombian striker set the final score at the beginning of the second half, when he put his head in Panák’s failed center on Ladislav Krejčí Jr.. “I think it was a gross mistake. It’s a situation he can’t afford. We’ll definitely blame him. It certainly affected the outcome, because getting such a cheap second goal is often not seen. The situation on his part was played very wrong, “Vrba told a news conference.
His team lost the opportunity to start in the elimination fights of the European League. “Of course I’m disappointed. Mainly because we wanted to play in the European League until the last round, which we didn’t succeed in. We lost the match by giving the home team a second goal. We showed a lot of situations that were interesting for us, but in the final situation we were unfortunately inaccurate or unstressed, especially at the huge chance that we shot at the goal four times in twenty seconds and did not score a goal, “said the 57-year-old native from Přerov.
The Rangers, who will play the spring phase of the European League in the third season in a row, were also helped by Bröndby’s home loss of Copenhagen 1: 3 with a certain group winner Lyon. It is with Bröndby that the Letna team will compete at home on December 9 in the final duel of the main phase of the European League to advance from third place to the playoffs of the newly formed European Conference League. Sparta has a two-point lead over the reigning Danish champion.
“We are very sorry that the European League is ending for us today, but when I look at the Conference League, there are teams that are very interesting. Our goal before the start of this competition was to advance to the spring part of the European Cups and place third. The match with Bröndby will be very important for us, I hope that we will advance to the spring part of the Conference League, which also includes top teams and where a lot of young players in Sparta can gain more experience, which will then be important for them in the future. , “said Vrba.
Sparta did not score a goal in the European League away. She drew without goals in Copenhagen and lost 0: 3 on the Lyon pitch. “Both in Copenhagen and today, we were close to scoring a goal. We came across teams that are our qualities, because I said about Lyon before the start of the competition that it is the group’s favorite. With Bröndby and Rangers, we are at the level of “We were sorry that we didn’t score a goal outside,” said the former coach of Pilsen or the Czech national team.
Against the Rangers, he was not satisfied with the performance of the wing midfielders Ladislav Krejčí Sr. and Lukáš Haraslín. “We certainly expected significantly more activity from both wings. But let’s face it, they can be active when their teammates supply them with recordings from which they can make something. There weren’t many recordings, but we certainly expected our wings to gain ground. “Unfortunately. It didn’t happen,” Vrba remarked.
Only in the second competitive match of the current year did Dominik Holec, who took precedence over number one Florin Nita, enter the goal. “We made a change because we felt that other goalkeepers needed to be given an opportunity. Holec performed the role very well. He was very good in the passing, he helped us to set up attacks. I am satisfied with his performance,” said Vrba.
