Police on standby for top of the table football clash

In football, around 500 police were on standby for the high risk top of the table derby clash between Slavia Prague and Sparta Prague on Monday. Slavia went into the home game with an 11 point lead over their historic rivals and the chance to put the title almost beyond doubt. Both teams have had problems scoring of late. That did not appear to have put off spectators with the early evening match sold out. The game ended in a 1:1 draw.
