AC Sparta Praha were held to a 0-0 draw by ten-man FC Príbram on Saturday.
Champions League hangover
The UEFA Champions League challengers were not at their peak as they travelled to the Na Litavce stadium and failed to take advantage of their hosts playing the last 20 minutes of the game with ten men.
Despite fielding a full-strength side including European heroes Rastislav Michalík, Marek Kincl, Jiri Jarošik and Libor Sionko, the 1. liga leaders could not break down their mid-table opponents even after Príbram had midfield player Rudolf Otepka dismissed after 71 minutes.
With their main title rivals in action on Sunday, Sparta are now just two points clear of FK Viktoria Zizkov and a further three points ahead of UEFA Cup heroes FC Slovan Liberec and local rivals CU Bohemians Praha.
