THE TEAM NEWS

OPAVA

  • Opava successfully avoided relegation last season but they seemingly face a tougher battle on this occasion as they enter this round of fixtures just three points ahead of the bottom club Pribram.
  • They actually started the season with back-to-back 1-0 wins but since then they have only claimed maximum points from two of their last 22 league matches.
  • In their last match immediately prior to the enforced break they were comprehensively defeated 4-0 by Slovan Liberec – that was the tenth time in 13 outings in which they had failed to register a goal.

KARVINA

  • Karvina were enjoying their best run of form this season prior to the disruption of the campaign as they had won three and drawn one of their last four fixtures to put some distance between themselves and the bottom of the table.
  • A big factor in their upturn in fortunes was their improved defensive solidity as they kept a clean sheet in each of those four matches prior to the enforced break.
  • It has to be mentioned though that three of those aforementioned games were on home soil and they have failed to score in their last six matches on the road which is obviously a concern.

THE PREDICTION

Both of these clubs are at the wrong end of the table with Karvina being six points ahead of Opava. A a win for the home team would put them within touching distance so there is plenty at stake. The form that Karvina were showing prior to the break was very encouraging and they look to have the capabilities to drag themselves away from danger by picking up a narrow win.
