Slovan to play in Prague

FC Slovan Liberec will play their UEFA Cup quarter-final first-leg in Prague after a UEFA ruling.

FC Slovan Liberec have been forced to move Thursday's UEFA Cup quarter-final first-leg match against BV Borussia Dortmund to the Letná stadium in Prague after a UEFA ruling.

Pitch unplayable
Slovan's pitch at the U Nisy stadium was deemed unplayable, meaning the crunch European tie will now be played at AC Sparta Praha's home stadium. The game will be the second consecutive UEFA Cup match for Slovan in the Czech capital - they beat Olympique Lyonnais 4-1 in the fourth-round second-leg at the ground in February.

Spanish scalps
The Czech side, whose UEFA Cup scalps this season include Spanish teams RC Celta de Vigo and RCD Mallorca, are bidding to reach the semi-finals in only their second season in European competition.
