Our prediction for this Czech First League match:
Stadion Letna will host Saturday’s football game between Zlin and Banik Ostrava, the two teams who have different ambitions in the season finale. Banik Ostrava are eyeing a place in the championship round, while Zlin are eager to secure yet another Czech Liga survival. The Sevci aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to ten-man Jablonec, but seeing that the game will be played behind closed doors, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the relegation strugglers.
Banik Ostrava are more of a team than Zlin, and we believe that they will move one step closer to securing a top-six finish with a win over Bohumil Panik’s troops. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced attacker Tomas Smola, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
