Paris vs Sparta Praha

Sparta Praha in brief

Emblematic representative of Czech soccer, Sparta Praha or Sparta Prague can count on both its men's and women's sections to carry the club's colors high. 
The debut of the Czech women's team was, however, a timid one. As early as 1970, the women's team found themselves in the shadow of their direct opponent, Slavia Praha, the second largest club in the capital of the Czech Republic. It was only in 1974 that Sparta Praha won its first derby against its now historic opponent. Two years later, the team won its first title. 
After that, the Czech players went on to win no less than 20 titles in the Czech Women's Football League (Liga Zen).
These impressive performances have led to Sparta Praha's participation in the UEFA Women's Champions League on several occasions, including the 2005-2006 campaign when the Czech team had its best result by reaching the quarter-finals. 

Sparta Praha performances

Sparta Praha is unsurprisingly the favorite to win the league, even though their opponents are very close in the standings. 
After a few complicated seasons in the Champions League, Sparta Praha managed to reach the round of 16 after a double victory against Glasgow City.
In the first leg, the Red and Blue have defeated them 5-0, with goals from Katoto, Bachmann, Lawrence and Luana. Despite a 3-0 defeat by forfeit in the second leg, the Parisians qualified for the quarterfinals of the UEFA Women's Champions League.
