Into the first game in the new year Sparta came in great and after twelve minutes led 2:0, thanks to Tomas Pavelka and Lukas Klimek. Trinec, however, compared even before the first break, and immediately at the beginning of the second period went into the lead for the first time. Trinec led 3:2, but on his third goal still managed to react with his second goal Lukas Klimek. For two more goals of visiting team Sparta did not find the answer. So, after three wins, defeat came.
