Sparta Prague and Brondby go toe-to-toe in Group A of the Europa League at the Generali Arena on Thursday.

The hosts will be seeking to keep their slender qualification hopes alive, while the visitors will be seeking to leapfrog the visitors and move into the Conference League spot.

Sparta Prague made it two wins from two in the Czech Republic top flight as they edged out MFK Karviná 2-1 away from home.

Pavel Vrba's men now turn their focus to the Europa League where they are on a three-game losing streak, conceding 10 goals and scoring three in that time.

The slump in form has seen Sparta Prague drop to third place in Group A, two points above Thursday’s visitors.

Brondby, meanwhile, suffered a quarter-final exit from the Danish cup last time out courtesy of a 2-0 defeat against Midtjylland.

The Danish side now return to the Europa League where they are yet to taste victory, picking up two draws and losing three of their five games.

Brondby will now aim to close out their campaign on a high note as three points on Thursday will see them move into the Conference League qualification spot.

This will be the second-ever meeting between the two teams. Their first encounter came in the reverse fixture back in September, when both sides played out an uneventful goalless draw.
