First friendly of the Austrian pre-season camp did not end with a success. Dynamo Kyiv, who are shortly before the start of their season, earned a 4-1 win.

Andrea Stramaccioni played Lukáš Mareček as a centre back, while two summer signings, Srdjan Plavšić and Lukáš Štetina started on the right wing and a centre back respectively.

Sparta did not start well and conceded after only five minutes of play. A corner kick bounced to Yarmolenko, who fired and beat Koubek with a nice low shot.

However, Sparta answered right back, as Martin Frýdek levelled the score with a similar shot only seven minutes later.

Dynamo got their lead back before the halftime whistle. First, Morozyuk hit the crossbar with a lovely taken free kick. Then he crossed the ball from the right and found Tsyhankov unmarked in the box – 2-1 Dynamo.

A lot of changes were made in the Sparta line-up during the second half, and Dynamo were getting control of the match.

Soon they scored two more goals, as Harnash beat Dúbravka with a powerful shot from the edge of the box, then Mbokani chipped the ball over the keeper to set the final score.
