Our prediction for this Czech First League match:
Bohemians and Sparta Prague take on each other in a highly-anticipated game at Stadion Dolicek. Bohemians did well to beat Opava 1-0 on Wednesday, with the team extending their winning run to four matches. The Kangaroos aim to jump even higher, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s clash against Sparta Prague. The capital club head into the game following back-to-back wins over Karvina and Teplice, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play.
Sparta Prague are determined to book their place in the championship round, but beating Bohemians at Stadion Dolicek is easier said than done. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both sides are likely to go for a win in their second meeting of the season. When the two clubs met at Generali Arena earlier this term Sparta Prague rolled over Bohemians 4-0.
Highlighted Player (Michal Travnik):
Michal Travnik is a Czech Republic footballer who plays for Jablonec as a midfielder. Michal Travnik started his youth career at Slovacko and he continued playing for the Metstky fotbalovy stadion outfit at senior level.
After making 66 appearances for Slovacko, in which he scored five goals, Travnik moved to fellow Czech side Jablonec in 2015. The prolific midfielder quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Jablonec and he is likely to play an important role in the Czech team in the 2018/2019 Europa League campaign.
Michal Travnik has 16 caps for Czech Republic U21 team and he made his debut for the senior team in a 1-0 win over Nigeria in June, 2018. The 175cm-tall footballer produces his best performances as a central midfielder, but he is equally good as a defensive midfielder. He has a contract with Jablonec which should expire on June 30, 2020. The player’s agents are GLOBAL SPORTS a.s.
Highlighted Team (Sparta Prague):
Established in 1893, Sparta Prague is one of Europe’s oldest clubs and the most successful side in Czech Republic, having won no fewer than 36 league titles and 27 Czech Cup trophies. The club play their games at the Generali Arena in Prague and hold a long-lasting rivalry with Slavia Prague.
Sparta Prague enjoyed their Golden Years in the 1960’s, when average attendance was nearly 40,000 and players like Jiri Tichy, Andrej Kvasnak and Vaclav Masek entertained the crowds week in week out. Rudi largely impressed in the maiden Champions League campaign during the 1991/92 season as they finished second in the semi-final group, meaning they were among top 4 European sides at the moment.
Nevertheless, Sparta Prague have enjoyed little to no success on the European stage since, reaching the Champions League knockout stages on just one occasion, with their latest major coup the return of prodigal son Tomas Rosicky from Arsenal.
