Slavia Prague – Barcelona Match Prediction | 23-10-2019 15:00

The Black and Yellows have lost only one in the last seven away fixtures in major tournaments. Borussia Dortmund was the previous season runner-up in the Bundesliga and are known for their exhilarating fans. With the hosts unbeatable run in the Czech League 1 matches proving no match for the Bundesliga clashes, it will be a far off compared to the visiting contingent.

BVB has won in all but one match in their trips on the road recently in the past seven fixtures in major competitions. As such, the match will probably end with the visitors gaining all three points with likely a lead in either half of the ninety minutes. They also have two clean sheets in the same period. Moreover, they have faced big teams, unlike the host.

Despite winning the domestic trophy in the 2016/2017 season, Slavia Prague eventually failed to book their place in the Champions League group stages as they were beaten by APOEL of Cyprus in the play-offs. Sparta Prague are regarded as Slavias fiercest rivals and the two teams face each other in the Prague derby. The Cervenobili won the Czechoslovak First League on 13 occasions and they lifted their fourth Czech First League in 2017. Slavia Prague is considered one of the most famous teams in Czech Republic.

Inter Milan vs Slavia Prague Predictions

The club was founded on November 2, 1892 and it has to be noted that the club was initially focused on cycling. The Cervenobili play their home games at Eden Arena and the capacity of the venue is 19.084 (football). Slavia Prague are well known for their red and white shirts and white shorts. In March 1896 Slavia Prague recorded their first ever victory, with the team beating AC Prague 5-0.

Olivier Giroud failed to find the net in the 1-0 win over Slavia in Prague, but the French international is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts in the second leg. The Czechs must be low on confidence ahead of the trip to London and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Blues party at Stamford Bridge.

BVB had their previous CL clash with the Spanish giants, Barcelona, and managed to keep them at bay at their home tie. Slavia Prague had encountered most ridiculous speculations when they were drawn in with the three big teams. The game did not deliver any goals as both teams drew to a defensive game despite their attacking style of play.

Eden Hazard made it to the 2014 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals with Belgium, but Argentina proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils in the last eight of the showpiece tournament in Brazil. Hazard scored one goal for Belgium at the Euro 2016 finals, while providing four assists for his teammates and no doubt he was the key player for Marc Wilmots team at the tournament in France.

As a result, the Blues are with one foot in the Europa League semis, but they cant afford any complacency in the return leg. It is well known that Chelsea have turned their Stamford Bridge into a real fortress and seeing that Slavia Prague need to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursdays football game, we are positive that the hosts will have a number of chances to score on the break. Despite the fact that coach Maurizio Sarri rested several first-team regulars in the first leg, Chelsea eventually defeated Slavia Prague at Sinobo Stadium.

Through their Nigerian striker, Slavia will feel like anything is possible. Thats what Peter Olayinka brings to the table. He will have to be at his best if he is to deny what will surely be an onslaught from the Germans here. Hes crucial to their chances. He scored in the draw, that was nearly a win, over Inter and he also found the back of the net at the weekend for his second goal of the Czech league season in a victory. The goalkeeper, Ondrej Kolar, is also a massively interesting player to watch.

The Cervenobili play their home games at Eden Arena and the capacity of the venue is 19.084 (football). Slavia Prague are well known for their red and white shirts and white shorts. The club was founded on November 2, 1892 and it has to be noted that the club was initially focused on cycling. In March 1896 Slavia Prague recorded their first ever victory, with the team beating AC Prague 5-0.

They not only got a point off Inter, but they did on the road. Plus, they get to come home for the second match day. BVB would be pleased with their draw with Barcelona, but the team that will be most pleased is Slavia Prague. Expert Verdict: With all of the teams level on points in the group so far, it's made for an interesting start. While it's still unlikely they will go through, a win here would be an awesome start and give them a puncher's chance.

Borussia Dortmund Predicted Starting Line up

With Barcelona and Inter Milan along in the mix, it will be a tight fight for the first two spots. The Red and Whites will be hosting the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund. All the teams in the Group F are yet to register a win in the Group stage games. They tied their opening clash at Inters home. The hosting side, Slavia Prague, will be hosting their first CL home match in this season.

Favre has a fairly big team, so its nice to be able to rotate and bring in someone like Paco Alcacer after he didnt start on Saturday. Marco Reus, as always, is also well worth paying attention to. The Spaniard has been a hit in Germany since arriving last season and already has five goals to his name in the current Bundesliga campaign and will seek his first UCL goal this time out. The German international scored on Saturday for his fourth in the Bundesliga and will look to get off the mark in the Champions League here.
