Football: Sparta win away from league title

A 4:1 win over Liberec has put domestic football league-leaders Sparta Prague in the driver’s seat, with the club needing only one win or two draws to secure this season’s league title. The club leads second-place Viktoria Plzeň by 10 points. The clubs coach, Vítezslav Lavička, was careful to keep emotions under wraps, telling news website iDnes the club “was close” but that nothing was definite yet.
