FC Viktoria Plzeň presented coach Pavel Vrba with the perfect birthday present as they secured top spot in UEFA Europa League Group B with a narrow win against Club Atlético de Madrid.

On the day that Vrba turned 49, Václav Procházka's first-half strike was enough to defeat the defending champions and help the hosts leapfrog Diego Simeone's men in the section. Unable to convert second-half domination into a goal, Atlético advance as runners-up into the round of 32, finishing a point behind the Czech club in the final standings.
