Viktoria Plzeň have been crowned Czech football league champions after a
2:1 win over Teplice on Saturday evening. The West Bohemians secured the
title one round before the end of the season and gave themselves a seven
point lead on second-placed Slavia.
Plzeň, which won the league for the fifth time within the past eight years and for the third time in a row, have secured a spot in the Champions League’s playoffs next season.
The winner of the 2018 Prague International Marathon is American runner Galen Rup. He improved his personal record in Prague by 3 minutes covering the 42 km distance in 2:06:07, which is the second best result in the marathon’s 24 year history. The bronze medallist from Rio is the first American to win the Prague Marathon.
In football, Viktoria Plzeň moved nearer winning the league title in the
top Czech leage with a 2:0 win against Karviná at home.
The win gives them a 10 point lead against second place Slavia Prague who play on Sunday. That means that Plzeň could secure the title next week when they play Slavia. The two goals came from Tomáš Hořova.
