Slavia Prague win Czech Cup to clinch double

Slavia Prague beat 10-man Viktoria Pilsen 1-0 on Thursday to win the Czech Cup and clinch the domestic double after taking the league title earlier this month.

Slavia, who have won a second double in three years, capitalised on a 73rd-minute goal by second-half substitute Abdallah Sima.

The 19-year-old Senegalese striker is likely to leave the club in the summer with several English Premier League sides showing interest, according to Czech media.

Slavia secured their third straight Czech league title in early May to clinch a berth in the Champions League qualifying phase.

Unbeaten in 44 consecutive league games to date, Slavia won the seventh title since the Czech championship was founded following the Czech Republic's split with Slovakia in 1993.
