Watch: Sparta Prague’s Michal Sacek conceded a hilarious own goal with his backside vs Slavia Prague in the Derby of the Prague last night.
Slavia Prague and Sparta Prague are considered to be the two most successful sides in Czech Republic’s football history. Undoubtedly the most famous teams in the country, the match between the local rivals, known as the Prague derby or Derby of the Prague S, is the most watched in the country.
It is natural that neither of the two want to lose the fixture. Especially at their home ground. Sparta hosted Slavia at the Generali Arena last night. However, their poor run of form continued this season as the visitors humiliated them 3-0 last night.
Tomas Soucek scored from the spot to give Slavia the lead in the 19th minute. Michal Sacek’s own goal in the 55th minute pretty much sealed the game before Lukas Masopust’s 89th minute strike put the match well and truly beyond their historic rivals.
Slavia hold on their top spot with yet another victory. In fact, they are yet to lose a match in the league this season with 8 victories and 2 draws. Their opponents on the other hand, are languishing at 7th place with 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses.
Sparta’s loss last night was made even worse by the 82nd exit of Benjamin Tetteh. There is possibly only one player in the field who had a more awful night then Red Card recipient Tetteh; One that social media may not allow him to let go off anytime soon.

In the 55th minute of the match, Sacek tussled for the ball in his box before the ball went to another opposition player. Sacek had fallen on the pitch and was on his fours before a powerful strike connected with his backside and deflected into the goal.
His face immediately after makes you want to laugh and pity him at the same time. It must break his heart to know that had he not been in that particular spot, at that moment, the ball would have likely gone out of play. Sacek, who was there to protect the goal, ironically ended up being the catalyst for the goal instead.
