Moving on to ice hockey and the line-up for the Extraliga play-offs is now complete. Favourites Sparta Prague take on their old rivals Slavia Prague, while Zlin, who defeated Znojmo on the way to the semis, face Vitkovice. Hockey fans may be hoping that the semi-finals are a bit calmer than the quarter-finals, when many games saw fights, insults and other trouble, including an incident in which the Vitkovice coach was hit in the head by an apple thrown by Plzen fans.
