Prague – In the 22nd round of the first league, the players of Pilsen only drew 1:1 with Olomouc, and in the spring part of the season they hesitated for the third time. The defending champions remained in second place in the incomplete table, one point behind Slavia, who have Sunday's match in České Budějovice to spare. In a week, Prague hosts Viktoria in Eden. Sparta defeated Teplice 4:1 and came close to Pilsen with a difference of only one point. Pardubice played 1:1 with Ostrava as well as Brno with Zlín.

Pilsen sent Pavel Bucha into the lead against Hanák in the 63rd minute, Mojmír Chytil equalized after five minutes. The home team hit the post twice in the end. Olomouc also drew in the sixth game of the spring part of the top competition and improved to fifth place. Plzeň did not lose against Sigma in the 18th league match in a row, but the fourth of the last six mutual matches ended in a draw.
Sparta decided against Teplice already in the opening act, when forwards Jan Kuchta and Tomáš Čvančara came through between the 22nd and 30th minutes. Abdallah Gning received a red card before the break and Letenští added two more goals in the power play. Asger Sörensen and Kuchta hit for the second time. The North Bohemians lost both at the beginning of the setup and in the weakening after a mistake by the home team, which was punished by substitute Babacar Sy.
The Praguers won the league for the fifth time in a row and are two points behind the leader Slavia from third place. Teplice lost for the fifth time out of six spring rounds, and only two points separate them from last place. North Bohemia coach Jiří Jarošík did not have a match against the club he played for, and his position may be in jeopardy.
Pardubice, which today was led by his assistant David Mikula instead of coach Radoslav Kováč due to a red card from the previous round, won the match against Ostrava in the third minute thanks to captain Pavel Černý. In the 35th minute, Brazilian Cada, a former player of East Bohemia, equalized from the penalty spot. Pardubice scored for the fourth round in a row and remained in the penultimate place of the incomplete table. Baník scored points after three defeats and is in 12th position.
Václav Procházka put Zlín in the lead in Brno in the ninth minute, and the visitors lost their victory only at the end, when Jakub Řezníček equalized in the 87th minute. With his fifteenth goal in the top flight season, he consolidated his leading position in the Gunners table.
The “Shoemakers” did not win for the third time in a row, they did not win the 25th game in a row away from home in the league since August 2021, and they remained last in the table. Together with Olomouc, they are the “king” of the league season with nine tied results. Zbrojovka won only one of the last nine rounds and is eleventh in the incomplete table. Brno did not lose at home in the league against Zlín for the tenth time in a row (since April 2004) and drew with them for the third time in a row.
On Sunday, the 22nd round will conclude with three matches. Leaders Slavia will present themselves in České Budějovice, Liberec hosts Bohemians 1905 and Slovácko will welcome Mlada Boleslav.
