It was a black week for FK Teplice after they suffered a second five-goal drubbing in the space of four days, following Wednesday's 5-1 defeat by Bologna FC in the UEFA Intertoto Cup with a repeat dose at FC Baník Ostrava yesterday.
Cizek's happy return
Teplice went ahead through captain Pavel Verbír in the 54th minute, but Baník responded in style. Martin Cizek, the son-in-law of club owner Evzen Hadamczik, marked his return to Baník after a five-year absence with two goals. It was an unhappy return for Karel Rada who was sent off in his first match back for Teplice after his transfer from Eintracht Frankfurt.
Poborský the star
AC Sparta Praha won 3-1 at SK Ceské Budéjovice on Saturday with Karel Poborský the star man at the stadium where he started his career. His corner led to Pavel Mares scoring the first and he added the second himself. An own goal from Michal Pospísil reduced the deficit, but Libor Sionko sealed the victory, which kept Sparta in pole position.
FK Jablonec 97 are the only other team with maximum points after two rounds after their defeat of FC Príbram. Jozef Weber missed a penalty for the home side but Richard Hrotek's goal was enough against ten-man Príbram, who lost Pavel Pergl to two bookable offences.
The first Prague derby of the season ended with a comfortable 4-1 win for SK Slavia Praha against CU Bohemians Praha today. Although Pavel Kulig volleyed Bohemians ahead, Adam Petrous levelled before the interval and three goals within fifteen minutes after the break - from Stepan Vachousek, Tomás Dosek and Karel Piták - ended the game as a contest.
Defending champions FC Slovan Liberec needed a last-minute goal from Martin Zboncák, playing against his old club, to claim a narrow win at 1. FC Brno. FK Viktoria Zizkov also left it late to beat Tescoma Zlín, Jan Buryán firing home against a side reduced to ten men by the 67th-minute dismissal of Zdenek Kroca for a foul on Kennedy Chihuri.
FK Chmel Blšany's new signing from Slavia, Tomas Pesír, scored the only goal against FK Hradec Kralové although the home side also had goalkeeper Ales Chvalovský to thank for saving a Michal Lesák penalty. Elsewhere, it finished 1-1 between 1. FC Synot and SK Sigma Olomouc.
