Gambrinus League Title Is Plzeň’s To Lose

The chase for Czech football’s Gambrinus Liga title has ignited following yesterday’s key fixture between first and second placed Viktoria Plzeň and Sparta Praha. In front of a packed out Štruncovy Sady stadium, Plzeň nicked a 1-0 victory in an absorbing encounter which leaves Sparta trailing the west Bohemians by 5 points in the table.

The match was won by Pavel Horvath’s scintillating freekick in the 16th minute, which was correctly adjudged to have cleared the goal-line having cannoned off the crossbar.

The win leaves Plzeň as favourites for the title, and with a superior head-to-head record over Sparta, which will see them victorious should the two clubs finish the season level on points.

  1. Sparta has got much more experience ‘finishing the job’, despite their loss on the weekend. I’m still not 100% convinced Plzen will win the league, as there are lots of games to play, and I see Plzen slipping up more away on the home than Sparta.

    Also, what is up with Jablonec? 7-0 win over Hradec? Wow! A lot can happen with 10 games left in the season.
