Baník Ostrava boss Luboš Kozel will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all ahead of this game with a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: FC Slovácko
Thanks to a largely full-strength squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the FC Slovácko manager Martin Svědík to be concerned about. Rigino Cicilia (Ankle Injury) misses out for this game.
Our feeling is that FC Slovácko are certainly able to find the net against this Baník Ostrava lineup, however it probably won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We can see both teams to score in a 2-1 victory for Baník Ostrava when all is said and done. Should be an interesting one.
