Teplice take Czech Cup honour

Aidin Mahmutovič was the hero as FK Teplice claimed the Czech Cup for the second time on Wednesday, the forward scoring three minutes after half-time to earn a 1-0 win against second-tier 1. FC Slovácko in Prague.

Aidin Mahmutovič was the hero as FK Teplice claimed the Czech Cup for the second time on Wednesday, the forward scoring the only goal against second-division 1. FC Slovácko 1-0 in Prague.

Second chance
Teplice were denied a UEFA Europa League place via the 1. Liga on Saturday when they lost 1-0 at home to newly-crowned champions SK Slavia Praha but they did not pass up a second chance – and nor did Mahmutovič three minutes after half-time. Slovácko goalkeeper Miroslav Filipko could only parry Admir Ljevakovič's effort and the 23-year-old pounced on the loose ball. It was to prove the only goal at the Strahov Stadium as their opponents, who eliminated Slavia in the semi-finals, failed to trouble Tomáš Grigar at the other end as Teplice claimed the trophy for the first time since 2003.
