There were not many chances in the first half despite dominant possession by Celtic. At minute 5 Laštůvka saved Lustig’s long-range shot with his fingertips.
After 37 minutes Škoda and Frydrych had the biggest chances for Slavia but our captain did not reach for Mingazov’s low cross and a few seconds later Frydrych aimed his header over the crossbar.
In the 2nd half Slavia introduced their new reinforcement – ex-Bundesliga player Halil Altintop, who was cheered by more than 10 thousand fans in Eden.
Despite Jaroslav Šilhavý making several changes in Slavia line-up it was Celtic who went closer to goal after Sinclair got a perfect pass from Griffiths but could not apply the finish from close range.
Few minutes later McGregor managed to create some space inside the penalty area after a brilliant individual work but he failed to hit the target from close range.
Slavia thus played 0-0 with Celtic in the most visited friendly game of recent years. On Wednesday the team is leaving for a training camp in Austria.
