Team News: FC Slovácko
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the FC Slovácko boss Martin Svědík to be concerned with due to a largely intact set of players. Rigino Cicilia (Ankle Injury) won’t play.
Team News: Karviná
With a fully injury-free group available to select from, Karviná manager Juraj Jarábek has zero fitness concerns to report ahead of this match.
For this match, we think that FC Slovácko can and should have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
At the other end, Karviná may well find it hard to score a goal of their own but we do fancy them scoring as well.
We can therefore see a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning score for FC Slovácko at full-time.
