¨For us, the priority is the Champions League, but we will definitely be going after the Super Cup. The Cup is our second match in a few days and we will fight to win the match,¨ said midfielder Bořek Dočkal.
Plzeň goes into the match straight from their training camp in Austria, where they lost to Karabakh and Lokomotiv Moskva and drew with Ingolstadt. ¨It is true that the results of the warm-up matches could have been better, but the coach tried different team combinations over the matches. The preparation was more important than the results,¨ said goalkeeper Matúš Kozáčík.
The match will take place at Sparta stadium starting at 17.45 and be broadcast on ČT Sport.
