|Let’s take a look at the Czech 1. Liga match between the league newbies, FK Pardubice, and 1. FC Slovácko, who are close to reach the Champions League spot for the first time.
|The home team, FK Pardubice, occupy the 7th spot with 35 points after 24 rounds, 24 goals scored and 31 suffered; a remarkable spot for a first time participant in the Czech First League. Their overall record consists of 10W – 5D – 9L, and a current form of 2W – 1D – 2L. Pardubice lost one out of 11 games home match this season (6W – 4D – 1L). Besides their poor finishing, Pardubice have registered more shots on goal than their opponents in the last 3 rounds.
|On the other hand, FC Slovácko are fighting for the Champions League Qualification spot, currently in the 3rd position with 47 points after 24 rounds. They also have the 3rd best defence and attack in the league, with 45 goals scored and 23 conceded. Slovácko record consists of 14W – 5D – 5L, and a current form of 3W – 1D – 1L. In the last 5 away matches, Slovácko won 4 and drew the other, and scored a total of 12 goals in the process.
|FK Pardubice are hard to beat at Pod Vinicí and they will be looking to keep the Conference League Qualification dream alive. FC Slovácko are clinical in front of goals and also have more experience in the Czech First League, and they are thirsty to reach the Champions League spot. I will back the visitors to win this match.
