Prague – The hockey players of Pilsen and Sparta will play the match of the 35th round of the extra league today from 5.30 pm. According to the original plan, the duel was not to be played until the Christmas holidays, when the people of Prague will start at the Spengler Cup in Davos. Sparta will have a chance to move to the top of the competition in the event of a higher win, losing three points to the leader of Pardubice in fifth place. But Dynamo has a better score ratio by four goals scored.

Pilsen, which is seventh, a point behind České Budějovice, will also want to improve its position in the table. In addition, West Czechs will have the advantage of a longer rest. The last time they played last week was on Thursday in Karlovy Vary, in Sunday’s 15th round they had time off.

The charges of coaches Václav Baďouček and Miloš Říha will try to repay Sparta’s defeat from the first mutual match of the season, a month ago the Prague team won 4: 3 in overtime. At the same time, the home team will try to follow up on a series of five prizes, which were interrupted by Energie in the West Bohemian derby.

Sparta lost the match with Kladno at home on Sunday, although it still led 3: 1 at the end of normal playing time. But then she collected twice during the power play of the opponent and subsequently lost separate raids. “Unfortunately, we did not manage the end of the match, even though we had a good start. Next time we have to play more calmly in the end,” said forward David Kaše, who scored the first extra-league goal in a Sparta jersey on Sunday.

The people of Prague are facing a challenging duel in Pilsen. “It will be a very difficult match. Pilsen is quite a winner, they have an abrasive cuff and our first mutual match was difficult. His team will defend a series of five extra-league duels in a row in which they have scored.

In addition, Sparta must prepare for a demanding program in the coming days, playing on Wednesday at home with Pardubice. “I think we are a bit running out of the program. We had no energy against Kladno and we are starting to pull our legs,” said coach Josef Jandač.
