Our Sparta Prague v Dynamo České Budějovice predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest match odds.
Sparta Prague will be wanting a better result here following a 3-1 First League defeat last time out to Viktoria Plzeň.
The only scorer from Sparta Prague was Ladislav Krejčí II (93'). Pavel Bucha (7'), Zdeněk Ondrášek (34') and Lukáš Hejda (45') scored for Viktoria Plzeň.
Matches featuring Sparta Prague have often been lively encounters of late with plenty of scoring being the norm. Over their past half dozen clashes alone, the sum of 24 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 4 goals per game) with 11 of those belonging to Železná Sparta.
Dynamo České Budějovice
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Tescoma Zlín in First League action, Dynamo České Budějovice and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only name on the scoresheet from Dynamo České Budějovice was Petr Javorek (42'). Petr Buchta (63') and Youba Dramé (76') scored for Tescoma Zlín.
The stats don’t lie, and Dynamo České Budějovice have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 14 goals in all. Defensively, Černý have been far from perfect. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this match, however.

Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 24 in total which averages out at 4 goals per meeting.

Thanks to a fully healthy group available for selection, Dynamo České Budějovice boss David Horejš doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this clash.
We believe that Dynamo České Budějovice are capable enough to find the net against this Sparta Prague side, although that probably shouldn’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re tipping a 2-1 winning score for Sparta Prague after the 90. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
