Slavia Prague host Fastav Zlin at Eden Arena on the Czech First League matchday 2.
Slavia took 4th spot in the Czech First League last season as they earned 52 points with 48:26 goal difference. This summer the hosts were preparing to the eurocups so they played 9 friendly matches recording 4 wins, 2 draws and 3 defeats. On top of that, Slavia managed to past two opponents in the Europa League qualification although it wasn’t easy for them. First, they kicked out Levadia (3:3 on agg) due to away goal rule and pasted through Rio Ave in the next round (1:1). In addition, Slavia have missed the first round of the season due to participation in the eurocups. We should say Slavia tend to show confident play at home ground as they are currently on 11-game undefeated run (7 wins, 4 draws).

Fastav Zlin were lucky to avoid relegation last season. They finished on 13th spot with 30 points earned and 34:50 goal difference. During their preseason the visitors played 6 friendlies as they recorded 2 victories, 3 ties and 1 loss. On top of that, Zlin managed to beat Příbram in the first game of the 2016/17 season of the Czech First League. Zlin have been struggling on the road in 2016 as they are on 7-game winless streak at the moment.
Remarkably, Fastav Zlin have been struggling to beat Slavia for more than 10 years. Slavia recorded 11 wins and 2 draws in their last 13 matchups against today’s opponents. Considering convincing performance of Slavia at home and poor one of Zlin on the road, we are sticking with the hosts.
Prediction for the match: Slavia Prague to win.
