THE TEAM NEWS

JABLONEC

  • Jablonec occupy third position in the league table and although their hopes of catching the two teams above them are very slim, they still have the motivation of aiming to secure their place in the Championship Group.
  • Prior to the enforced break they had failed to win any of their last three league matches and they can’t really afford to let that run without a victory be extended as there are a number of teams within touching distance.
  • Improving their home form will be a big aim as they return to action. They won their first five home games of the season but in the seven matches since then maximum points have been claimed on only two occasions.

ZLIN

  • Zlin have suffered a slump in form this season and are consigned to a place in the Relegation Group after just missing out on a Europa League spot in the 2018-19 campaign.
  • They lost three of their four matches just prior to the enforced break and going further back have only won three of their last 18 league outings.
  • Some confidence may have been gained from winning three friendly matches prior to the resumption of the season especially as they scored a total of 12 goals in winning those games.

THE PREDICTION

Jablonec have the chance to strengthen their position in the top six with a victory against a team who are in the lower reaches of the table. The home side will be confident of doing just that having won five and drawn one of their last six matches against Zlin. All five of those victories have come without conceding a goal and another win whilst shutting out the opposition is on the cards here too.
