Football: Sparta edge Teplice

Prague football club Sparta, chasing Viktoria Plzeň, won a key match against visitors Teplice on Saturday to move within two points of the league leaders. From the get-go Sparta created numerous opportunities but failed to score; a regular goal by Lafata in the second half was waved offside. Near the end of the match, Sparta were awarded a questionable penalty. Dočkal took the spot kick successfully. The final score was 1:0.
