Jan Kuchta (45'), Nicolae Stanciu (53'), Tomáš Holeš (64') and Oscar Dorley (78') scored for Slavia Prague.
Slezský FC Opava have really been misfiring in more recent games. Their sum of goals stands at just 3 vs opposition teams during their previous six outings.

For FC Slovácko, the goalscorers were Vlastimil Daníček (20'), Michal Kohút (26') and Patryk Šimko (54' Own goal).
Martin Svědík's FC Slovácko have turned their attacks into goals 13 times in the course of their most recent 6 matches. The aggregate of goals that they have conceded during those same clashes adds up to 5.

Team News: FC Slovácko
Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there’s only the one fitness worry for the FC Slovácko manager Martin Svědík to be concerned about. Michal Tomic (Knee Problems) won’t be in action.
In our view, Slezský FC Opava have it in them to score against this FC Slovácko team, but one goal probably won’t prevent defeat.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a close game with a 1-2 win for FC Slovácko by the conclusion of the game. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
