Sparta 10 points clear after Plzeň draw with Jihlava

Sparta Prague’s lead at the top of the Czech soccer league is now 10 points after second-placed Viktoria Plzeň could only manage a 1:1 draw against Jihlava on Sunday. Hosts Plzeň, who are defending champions, struck through Michal Ďuriš at the start of the second half but lost their lead on 82 minutes thanks to a Muris Mešanovič strike. Sparta beat Slavia on Saturday in the 281st meeting of the Prague clubs. There are six rounds remaining this season.
