There has been no change at the top of Czech football’s First League,
with the top two teams both winning on Monday evening. Leaders Slavia
Prague maintained their three-point lead after beating Slovácko 4:0 while
Viktoria Plzeň overcame Opava 2:1.
There are eight rounds remaining until the end of the season. Plzeň are defending league champions and Slavia lifted the title two years ago.
One-quarter of the players in Czech football’s top division are
foreigners, iRozhlas.cz reported on Tuesday. Of the 354 players who made
appearances in the autumn part of the season, 90 were not from the Czech
Republic, the news site said.
While Slovaks, as is traditional, account for a large number of them, footballers from Eastern European and African states are also making their mark. Foreigners have been the top scorers at half of the top flight’s 16 clubs so far this season.
