Litvínov sinks again, Mountfield grabs a key spot

The Extraliga table has a lot of teams still separated by just a handful of points

 
 
 
 

It's been an interesting week for the leading league of the Czech Republic. Liberec keeps on being the leading team of the competition, with ten points separating it from the second best-placed club which, by now, is Mountfield HK. After a troubled start, the latter are now doing very well, with four wins out of the last five games. Plzen, Olomouc, Mladá Boleslav and Chomutov follow immediately, with just one point separating each of them in the standings. Sparta Praha, after a raging start, is now in serious trouble, with two heavy losses this week and a seventh spot which really puts them at the margins of the play-off zone: the first one came away with Olomouc (5-1 for the latter), while today the team from the capital suffered another terrible loss against Zlín (4-0).

At the bottom of the table, Karlovy Vary won both of this week's match-ups, defeating Plzen 3-1 and Trinec 2-0, thus approaching Zlín, Pardubice and the aforementioned Trinec in terms of points. The same can't unfortunately be said for Litvínov, which, despite a shootout victory against Zlín, was again beaten today 1-0 by Liberec, in an interesting first-against-last clash. By now, the points dividing Litvínov and their immediate competitor, Karlovy Vary, are five, and VERVA urgently needs to escape the play-out zone (a strong reason for that is given by the really high level of the WSN Liga leading teams this season, Kladno above all). Despite that, the lower part of the table is still very short, and many surprises are expected...
