Pardubice will be hoping to bounce back here after a 3-1 First League defeat in their last game at the hands of Dynamo České Budějovice.
The only name on the scoresheet from Pardubice was Martin Šejvl (21'). Mick van Buren (26'), Jakub Hora (42') and Fortune Bassey (53') scored for Dynamo České Budějovice.
It has been all too rare in recent times where Pardubice have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Pardubice have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 10 goals in the process.
Coming into this clash, Pardubice are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.

Team News: Pardubice
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the lone fitness concern for the Pardubice manager Jaroslav Novotný to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Jiri Slama (Back trouble) will miss out.
Team News: Sparta Prague
Sparta Prague manager Pavel Vrba has not got a full squad to pick from. Adam Karabec (Muscular problems), Matej Pulkrab (Unknown Injury), Dominik Holec (Unknown Injury), Filip Soucek (Knee Injury), Matej Polidar (Shoulder Injury), Lukas Julis (Groin Injury), Casper Höjer (Calf Injury) and Ladislav Krejci (Blood clot in the lungs) won’t be making appearances.
In our view, Sparta Prague can get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the same time, Pardubice could well find it tough getting goals- but, we do see them managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
Therefore, we are anticipating a decent 1-3 winning margin for Sparta Prague come full-time.
