Round-up of action from Eastern Europe leagues

BELGRADE, May 1 (Reuters) - Round up of the weekend action in eastern Europe.

CZECH REPUBLIC - Slovan Liberec won their first league title in four years after a 1-1 home draw with Most left them 10 points ahead of Teplice and Mlada Boleslav with two matches remaining.

Jan Blazek fired Slovan ahead in the 20th minute before Horst Siegl converted a late penalty for the visitors.

Teplice went second on goal difference after a 1-1 home draw with Jablonec. A 4-2 defeat at struggling Brno ended Mlada's slim championship hopes.

RUSSIA - Rubin Kazan took over as leaders with a 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow which pushed the champions off the top and down to third.

Tomsk beat Rostov 3-1 to go second, level on points with Rubin.

Alexander Bukharov scored Rubin's winner in the 34th minute when he drilled in a rebound after CSKA goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev could only parry a fierce shot from Argentine striker Alejandro Dominguez.

Two goals from Denis Kiseliev and one by Pavel Pogrebniyak earned Tomsk victory.

HUNGARY - Ujpest suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at bottom team Papa Lombard, allowing champions Debrecen to cut their lead to three points after a dramatic 2-1 win at fourth-placed Videoton Fehervar.

Brazilian debutant Fabinho and Japanese striker Kazuo Honma scored for Papa before Norbert Toth pulled one back for Ujpest.

Peter Mate capitalised on a goalkeeping error in the 90th minute to clinch the win for Debrecen after Videoton's Csaba Csizmadia had cancelled out a header by Tamas Szandor.

MTK Budapest went third, five points behind the leaders, by defeating Kaposvar 3-1.

ROMANIA - Rapid Bucharest went top with a 2-0 win at champions and city rivals Steaua, who dropped to third.

Sportul Studentesc moved into second place with a 5-4 win at Dinamo Bucharest.

Steaua were sank by goals from Daniel Pancu and Viorel Moldovan either side of the interval.

A first half hat-trick from the league's top scorer Ionut Mazilu gave Sportul a 3-0 lead and, although Dinamo staged a spirited fightback, the visitors ran out deserving winners.

POLAND - Leaders Legia Warsaw fought back from a two-goal deficit to salvage a 2-2 draw at Korona Kielce.

Champions Wisla Krakow slashed Legia's advantage to five points after Pawel Brozek secured a 1-0 win at Amica Wronki.

Dickson Choto and Piotr Wlodarczyk, deep in injury time, were on target for Legia.

CROATIA - Dinamo Zagreb closed in on the title after a 2-2 draw at second-placed Rijeka left them eight points clear with three matches remaining.

Luka Modric's half volley earned Dinamo a point after Rijeka captain Sinisa Linic and Ahmed Sharbini had wiped out Ante Tomic's first-minute opener.

Champions Hajduk Split continued their poor run, a 2-1 defeat at Osijek leaving them fifth.

SERBIA AND MONTENEGRO - A Milan Purovic double gave champions Red Star Belgrade a 2-0 win at neighbours Zemun, who face an uphill battle to avoid relegation in the last two matches.

The result left Zemun 10th in the 16-team first division, three points behind Buducnost Banatski Dvor who drew 1-1 at relegated Smederevo.

Seven teams will go down at the end of the season and three promoted to cut the division to 12 clubs.

SLOVAKIA - Leaders Artmedia Bratislava won 3-1 at bottom team Puchov to stay a point ahead of Ruzomberok, who kept up the pressure with a 3-2 triumph at Nitra.

Dusan Sninsky, Lubormir Reiter and a Michal Prokes own goal kept Artmedia on course for their second successive title.

Marek Sapara, Josef Dvornik and in-form striker Erik Jendrisek struck for Ruzomberok.

UKRAINE - Two goals by striker Sergey Rebrov and one from Kleber gave Dynamo Kiev a 3-1 home victory over Kryvbas Kryvyi Rig, keeping them two points ahead of champions Shakhtar Donetsk with two matches to go.

Shakhtar stayed in the see-saw championship race after Evaverson Brandao, captain Anatoly Tymoschuk and Romanian defender Cyprian Marica scored in a 3-1 win at city rivals Metalurg.

BULGARIA - Levski Sofia crushed Rodopa Smolyan 6-1 to go five points clear of champions CSKA Sofia and move a step closer to their 24th title.

Nikolai Dimitrov struck twice for Levski and the other goals came from Cedric Bardon, Valery Domovchiiski, Miroslav Ivanov and Daniel Borimirov. (additional reporting by Zoltan Fazekas, Radu Timofte and Angel Krasimirov)
