Team News: Slovan Bratislava
Slovan boss Ján Kozák has multiple availability issues to deal with. Vladimir Weiss (Corona virus) and Filip Lichy (Torn Muscle) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re of the view that Slovan Bratislava will probably be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
Conversely, MŠK Žilina might well find it difficult to make a breakthrough but we do fancy them pulling one back during this clash, too.
Accordingly, we see a decent 1-3 winning margin for Slovan Bratislava at the end of the 90 minutes.
