Villarreal coach Marcelino says Sparta Prague not easy rival

Villarreal (Spain), April 6 (IANS) Villarreal coach Marcelino Garcia Toral on Wednesday warned that Czech football club Sparta Prague will not be an easy opponent when it plays against his Spanish group on Thursday in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

The coach insisted that Sparta Prague is a difficult adversary, considering their path to reach the quarterfinals in the Europa League, especially after they eliminated Italian side Lazio.

“We’re the favourites, but Sparta Prague come to us after knocking out Krasnodar and Lazio and so we can’t think it’s won,” Marcelino said, empathisising that the Czech team has an effective defence and knows how to take advantages to score more goals.
