Plzeň equal club record of 16 wins in succession

The Czech soccer league leaders Viktoria Plzeň beat Slovácko 4:0 away on Saturday evening. The result saw the West Bohemians take revenge after Slovácko dumped them out of the domestic cup and equaled a club record of 16 wins in a row set two seasons ago. They also extended their Czech record of wins from the start of this season to 14 in succession.

Despite the fact their nearest challengers also won, Plzeň are 13 points clear of the rest of the pack and a senior figure at current champions Slavia Prague recently congratulated them on “winning the league.”
