Sparta Prague captain doubtful ahead of Europa League clash


In football, Sparta Prague are facing the upcoming Europa League tie against Russia’s Krasnodar with top striker and captain David Lafata unlikely to play. Lafata has been nursing a muscle strain for several weeks which resulted in him missing Saturday’s league match and most of the previous warm up games. The two leg tie against Krasnodar takes place in Prague on Thursday night. Sparta are the last Czech club remaining in European competitions.
