In football, Sparta Prague face Lazio Rome at home in the last 16 of the Europa League on Thursday night. Coach Zděnek Šcasný says he will not be underestimating the Italian team although they are only eighth place in the Seria A league. He says he was impressed by Lazio’s last Europa League performance against Turkish side Galatasary. Šcasný refused to comment on whether Sparta top striker David Lafata will play from the start. The return leg will be played in Rome on March 17. Sparta have never made it to the last eight of the Europa League.
