Football: defending champions face last place Žižkov

Czech football league champions Viktoria Plzeň will have an opportunity on Sunday to get within striking distance of retaining their title, if they can defeat last/place Žižkov and other results go their way. The third-place team currently is four points behind leaders Sparta, and three behind Liberec. At the weekend, Sparta will face Teplice, in 7th spot, while Liberec will take on Ostrava, who are second-to-last. Viktoria Plzeň had a highly respected run after winning the Czech league – qualifying for the first time for the Champions League and the Europa League after failing to advance from the group.


The coming days bring overcast and rainy weather. Daytime highs should range between 10 and 14 degrees Celsius.
