AC Sparta Praha rediscovered their winning touch by beating last season's UEFA Europa League runners-up Athletic Club 3-1 in the Czech capital.

Goals from Tomáš Zápotočný and Bekim Balaj set Vítězslav Lavička's side on their way before Josef Hušbauer's 56th-minute penalty sealed their first Group I points.
