Our prediction for this Czech First League match:
Mlada Boleslav will be looking to build on a 3-2 win over Banik Ostrava when they take on Slavia Prague in their first game after the coronavirus football break. Mlada Boleslav are on the right track too book their place in the championship round, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the regular season. Jozef Weber’s troops have already recorded nine wins at home ground this season, but it has to be noted that Tuesday’s football match will be played behind closed doors.
Slavia Prague, on the other hand, are on a quest to defend their title. The Cervenobili are leading the standings ahead of Matchday 25, eight points clear of second-place Viktoria Plzen, meaning that they would be happy with one point from the match. Seeing that Mlada Boleslav are tough to beat at home, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Lokotrans Arena.
