Team News: Baník Ostrava
The Baník Ostrava boss Ondřej Smetana doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever before this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Slavia Prague
Slavia Prague boss Jindřich Trpišovský has to currently contend with reduced team options. Lukas Masopust (Groin Injury) and Jan Boril (Knee Surgery) are not able to play.
Slavia Prague are likely to be in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of their chances.
At the same time, Baník Ostrava will not find it easy to break down their defence although we reckon that they could well end up converting at least once here, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a 1-3 win for Slavia Prague when the referee blows the final whistle.
