Can Prague pull off an upset?

Sparta Prague returns to action sat in 9th place in the table. They failed to win any of their last five games before the lockdown (D3 L2) so weren’t in form.

A positive for them is that only the current top two of Slavia Prague and Viktoria Plzen have scored more league goals than they have managed in this campaign.

The home form of Sparta Prague reads W6 D4 L3 and in their last game before lockdown, they did play out a good 1-1 away draw at league leaders and rivals Slavia Prague.

1-1 Correct Score

Over 2.5 goals have appeared in 7 of Sparta Prague’s last 8 home games in the league. They have conceded at least 2 goals in each of their last four on home turf.

What does make this interesting is that Sparta have done alright at home against the stronger teams in the division. They are W3 L1 action the current top five.


Can Viktoria Plzen regain momentum?

Viktoria Plzen are on a four match winning streak in the top flight. They sat in second place in the division but eight points adrift of leaders Slavia Prague.
