2.Forecasting, statistics and probable teams
Zlin has great plans at the start of this championship edition. He hoped to do better than last year, when he finished the regular season on the 9th. He played for the Europa League playoff without winning – in the semifinals he eliminated Sigma Olomouc, but he succumbed to Mlada Boleslav with 3-4 in the general.Zlin is recognized for the good games he does on his own ground. In the previous three official home disputes he succeeded in imposing himself. In the competitive break he played five friendly matches and had a positive balance: 3 wins and 2 defeats. One of the failures came with Lokomotiv Moscow, 2-4.Yellow-blue players have changed their coach this summer. Josef Csaplar, the one who, between 2004 and 2005, prepared himself on Slavia Prague. The match in the first stage will be a special one for the European Cup winner.
The probable team from Zlin: Dostal – Bartoska, Buchta, Dzafic, Fantis – Hlinka, Hnanicek, Jiracek, Matejov – Necas, Podio
Slavia Prague comes after a great season in which he managed to win the event. In the championship he did not have a rival and dominated authoritarian – even if he finished only five points ahead of Viktoria Plzen, the difference in value was huge. White-Reds have the chance to take a long-awaited revenge from the first stage of the new season. In the last five months they have suffered a single defeat, even on Zlin’s field. It was 0-1, the only goal scored by Dzafic.Slavia has less than a month to prepare for the most important doubles in the UEFA Champions League. Knowing that he is so close to his presence in the teams, Trpisovsky’s team grew strong in the competitive break. Approximately four million euros were paid for bringing Nicuşor Stanciu from Al Ahli. He will make a pair as well as the national team with Alexandru Băluţă.
The Slavia Prague team: Kovar – Boril, Coufal, Hovorka, Husbauer – Kudela, Soucek, Băluţă – Stanciu, van Buren, Traore
