Three goals were scored in the match between Sparta Prague and Slavia Prague, but the second goal has to be one of the funniest goals ever seen in football. Yes, it was an own goal, but the way it went in and the expression from the player who conceded makes one laugh over it.
In the 55th minute, Michal Sacek went to the ground within their pwn box trying to block a shot. The ball reached another Slavia Prague player but Sacek remained on the ground, not fully laying over, but was on his knees with his back facing his goal. He was down for only a few seconds, when the ball came in at force and hit his backside, before deflecting into the goal. Poor Sacek could not do anything but feel dejected on conceding an own goal, when his team were already behind.

Prior to the own goal, Slavia Prague had already scored past Ondrej Kolar after Tomas Soucek converted a 19th minute penalty. A barrage of yellow cards, Lukas Masopust in the 40th minute and Jan Bořil & Guelor Kanga in the 43rd minute, ended the first half at 1-0 in favour of Slavia Prague.
Ten minutes into the second half, Sparta Prague conceded with an unfortunate own goal, but ten more minutes later, they found themselves down to ten men when Josef Husbauer was handed a second yellow card. With 10 men, Slavia somehow managed to cling on until the 82nd minute, when their opponents came down to the same number of player s on the pitch with Benjamin Tetteh shown a straight red.
In the final minute of the game, Lukas Masopust scored the thi9rd goal for Slavia Prague, who went on to claim the derby victory 3-0.
With the win, Slavia Prague are now three points clear on top of the league with 26 points.
