Even two goals by Lukáš Haraslín were not enough for the football players of the Prague Sparta to gain points in Thursday’s home match of the 3rd round of the European League with Olympique Lyon.
The Slovak wing sent them to a two-goal lead between the 4th and 19th minutes, but the guests triumphed 4: 3 and clearly lead the A-group with a full number of 9 points.
Lukáš Haraslín opened the scoring when he prepared a shooting position at the edge of the penalty area and his dotted finish fell into the net. He doubled the lead after passing a pass on the left hand side, pulling the ball into the penalty area and shooting it right between the legs of the defender Jeromea Boatenga.
However, Karl Toko Ekambi lowered until the break, and after a change of sides, Houssem Aouar and Lucas Paqueta turned the situation around. In the end, Lyon lost the disqualified Mala Gusta, who saw the yellow card, but Karl Toko Ekambi gave a winning hit in a numerous disadvantage.
The Slovak home defender Dávid Hanck was denied a goal by VAR at the set time, in which Ladislav Krejčí reduced it anyway. Sparta did not manage to equalize and figured with four points on the second place.
The first victory in the C-group was achieved by SSC Napoli, which defeated the Legion Warsaw 3-0 at its own stadium. Stanislav Lobotka sat on the bench of substitutes of the Italian club.
KRC Genk failed with another Slovak midfielder Patrik Hrošovský, he lost 0: 3 at West Ham United. Hrošovský completed full minutes.
