David Lafata scored a hat-trick as AC Sparta Praha came from behind twice to win a thrilling UEFA Champions League third qualifying round first leg against Malmö FF.
Although Lafata cancelled out Emil Forsberg's opener, the visitors regained the lead before half-time thanks to Isaac Kiese Thelin. However, two goals in two minutes from Lafata and Radoslav Kováč put the Czech club ahead before the Sparta captain – on target five times against FC Levadia Tallinn in the previous round – sealed victory with his third.
