Sparta Prague and Liberec preparing for European action this week

Don't forget that Sparta and Liberec are involved in European action this week. Sparta enter the lions den on Tuesday, when they visit the most successful club ever in European competition, Real Madrid. Sparta's hopes of progressing in the Champions League are virtually nil at this point and a draw would be a great achievement. Liberec have more to play for in the UEFA Cup quarter-finals. They take on Borussia Dortmund at home in the first leg on Thursday - they'd want to keep an eye on Borussia's Czech striker Jan Koller. Koller's form has been improving of late after a shaky start at Dortmund, and he scored in his side's 3:1 victory over Muenchengladbach at the weekend.
