According to Sparta football coach Brian Priske, it would be arrogant to think that the fight for the title is only a matter for his team and Slavia. Both Prague teams have a seven-point advantage at the top of the table over the defending champions Plzeň, who are in third place. Priske and Spartan captain Ladislav Krejčí, however, think that Letenští must focus mainly on themselves.
In today’s 25th round of the first league, Sparta defeated the newcomers from Brno 3:1 and won the top competition for the eighth time in a row. In terms of points, they thus caught up with Slavia, which is first only thanks to a better score. At the same time, she took advantage of Plzeň’s hesitation on Saturday. Viktoria in Mladá Boleslav drew without goals and did not win in the fourth round in a row.
“It would be arrogant to say that there are only two teams fighting for the title. Last season, Pilsen showed quality and experience. They entered the superstructure from second place then and eventually won,” said Priske at the press conference.
According to him, the Leten people concentrate only on themselves. “It will be a tough fight. We have big ambitions and dreams. It’s just about us and our pursuit of the title, which we haven’t won in a long time. We have to go after it until the end. It doesn’t matter how many teams we compete with for it, but only our performances,” said the forty-five-year-old Dane.
“I take it that it’s still about us. That’s how we built it from the beginning. In the fall, we were far from where we are now. The attitude we told ourselves at the beginning is maintained and I want it to be maintained. Despite the train can’t run. If we think differently, it will be wrong. Everyone is aware of it and everyone in the club approaches it that way. It will continue like this,” said defensive player Krejčí, the author of the first goal against Brno.
Sparta will face České Budějovice in the semi-final of the domestic cup on Wednesday in Letná, on Sunday they will play in the league in Pardubice and then in the next round in the derby against Slavia.
“It’s important that we won the first game after the international break and quickly gained confidence. We have a good streak and we want to continue it. We have to stay humble and focus on Wednesday, which will be another tough game. The final is our big goal, they separate us one game away from him. We have to do everything to fight our way into him,” Priske pointed out.
