Czech Republic round-up: Zizkov see off Teplice

FK Viktoria Zizkov moved to the top of the 1. liga with a 3-1 defeat of FK Teplice on Friday.

FK Viktoria Zizkov got the second half of the Czech 1. liga season off to a fine start as they moved to the top of the league with a 3-1 defeat of FK Teplice at the Na Stínadlech stadium.

Back on terms
Zizkov did not let Radek Divecky's 15th-minute goal upset their rhythm and they were back on level terms eleven minutes later when Tomáš Oravec slotted the ball home following a superb long-range pass from Ludek Stracený.

Fine volley
Michal Smarda ensured the Prague club went in 2-1 ahead at the break when he drilled a fine volley into the back of the Teplice net in the 42nd minute. Kennedy Chihuri, a second-half substitute, secured the three points with Zizkov's third goal in the 68th minute.

Sparta second
The victory moves Zizkov a point ahead of champions AC Sparta Praha. The UEFA Champions League challengers face SK Hradec Králové at the weekend knowing a point will be enough to see them return to the top of the table.
