Sparta Prague Prediction – Can Sparta Prague use home comforts?

Having come out on top in the domestic Czech Republic Czech Liga at the end of last season, Sparta Prague enter the Europa League at this 3rd qualifying round stage.

Thursday night’s hosts finished 5 points clear at the top of the Czech Liga ahead of runners-up Viktoria Plzen, and they have home advantage in tonight’s 1st leg.

It’s still early days in the new domestic top flight season but Sparta Prague occupy an early 4th place on the Czech Liga ladder.

They head into this 1st leg encounter against Trabzonspor with a 3-match unbeaten sequence which includes 2 wins and 1 draw.

Recent victories against Jablonec and Pribram (both at home with 2-0 and 3-0 wins respectively), along with a 2-2 draw away at Ceske Budejovice, gives them momentum here.

Results on home turf at their Generali Arena have been excellent for Sparta Prague as they’ve won 14 of their last 16 matches on home soil in all competitions.

Switch to home matches in the Europa League and Sparta Prague have lost just 2 of their last 19 home ties in this competition which is a solid record.

Trabzonspor Prediction – Can Trabzonspor break drought?

The Turkish visitors finished in 4th place in last season’s Turkish Super Lig which earned them a spot in this season’s Europa League.

They enter at the 3rd qualifying round stage of the competition where they travel to Sparta Prague for this important 1st leg.

Since the end of last season’s domestic campaign, Trabzonspor have played 4 pre-season friendlies, all of which have ended in stalemates.

Draws with Szombathelyi, Hoffenheim, Parma and Hellas Verona in 0-0, 3-3, 2-2 and 1-1 stalemates were perhaps a little frustrating.

Trabzonspor therefore head into this 1st leg of this Europa League tie without a winning momentum behind them which could prove pivotal.

Overall away results recently have been solid enough as Trabzonspor bring an 8-match run without a defeat on their travels in all competitions.

This sequence consists of 3 wins and 5 draws, but results on the road in the Europa League have left a little to be desired.

The visitors have gained just 2 wins out of their last 9 away ties in the Europa League with wins at Metalist and Differdange 03.


Key-Facts – Sparta Prague v Trabzonspor

Betting Tips Verdict
