Barcelona will win

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.

Fixed Matches HT FT

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.

They did get a credible point with Inter Milan, though some will point to them giving two points away rather than earning one, so they are far from out of it just yet and will home their home form can get them more points than many would imagine possible. So far, they have earned 29 points from 11 matches, drawing twice to see them drop those four points in what has been a so-far sterling run. As far as the Champions League goes, though, it will be much tougher. Slavia will come into this match in control of the Czech 1 Liga yet again. They are looking like they will coast, perhaps, to another title victory.

But on the other, they must realise that given the gulf in quality between their squad and those of their rivals, it will be a huge task to extend their European involvement into the new year by avoiding the bottom position in the table. On the one hand, Slavia will enjoy a real glamour campaign that should be financially lucrative.

Best Borussia Dortmund vs Slavia Prague prediction

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.

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.

Some cynics would have only been impressed with a win at home over the Catalans, but they have done well nonetheless and are in good standing currently within the group. Borussia Dortmund will enter this match in all the way down outside of the European places in the German Bundesliga after yet another outing in which they dropped points. In terms of the UCL, they got off to a decent start by holding Barcelona to a draw at home. Its the third time in four matches they have done so, and it leaves them three points off the pace of Bayern despite being widely expected to challenge the perennial winners.

Slavia Predicted Starting Line up

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.

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.

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.
