Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Senol Gunes Stadium (Trabzon).
Against expectations, Sparta had been cruising in their home leg with a two-goal lead right till the 85th minute. But the sheer quality of the Turkish squad was on full display as they scripted a comeback, with them recording two goals in the span of just four minutes.
More important than the goals, was their status, which was scored on an away ground.
The momentum massively shifted in favor of the team from Turkey, and will definitely play a major role in the outcome of this second leg. Add in the home advantage of Trabzonspor, and the struggles of Prague on the road and the picture gets clearer.
