Sparta won the game 2-1 to advance to the cup final. “The disciplinary committee won’t tolerate racist expressions at the league stadiums,” said Richard Baček, who heads the committee. A week ago, the league fined another club, Olomouc, 120,000 Czech crowns ($5,050) for racist abuse by fans of Plzen striker Jean-David Beauguel of France, who is Black.
Plzen won the league game 1-0. Baček said the incident at Sparta, unlike the one at Olomouc, took place just once but more fans were involved, a reason for a higher fine. There was only a small crowd at the match in Olomouc because of restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.
