Champions League: Thun hold Sparta to take third place

7 December 2005 22:58

PRAGUE/LONDON Dec 7 (SW) - Thun held Sparta Prague to a scoreless draw in the Czech Republic to qualify for the third round of the UEFA Cup, while Arsenal and Ajax finished with the same result at Highbury.

Sparta Prague - Thun 0-0

For Thun, a draw would be enough to secure participation in the third round of the UEFA Cup. Sparta Prague needed a win and were the dominant side in the first half, but could not create any significant opportunities.

Sparta had a player sent off in the 78th minute. Petras commited a foul on Adriano Pimenta, and referee Riley replied with a red card as the Englishman adjudged the Slovakian defender to have been the last man.

But the visiting side would have one player expulsed as well. A foul from Gonçalves in the 85th minute was enough for Riley to restore the numeric balance on the pitch.

Arsenal - Ajax 0-0

Arsenal had a perfect opportunity to open the score in extra time of the first half. Tomas Galasek committed a foul on José Antonio Reyes, but Frenchman Thierry Henry sent the following penalty kick wide of the goal.

As neither team showed much inspiration, the second half turned out to be rather uneventful. With the final score of 0-0, Arsenal end with 16 points while Ajax are second with 11. Thun are third with four points and move on to the UEFA Cup, while Sparta's European season is over with just two points.
