Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Thursday’s football game at Sinobo Stadium pits together Slavia Prague and Leicester City, who face each other in the Europa League last 32, first leg. The Czechs are on a three-game winning run at home in the Europa League, but the Foxes are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Kuchta and Sima, who have netted 22 goals between each other this season, are likely to make life difficult for the opposition defenders.
Leicester City are brimming with confidence following a 3-1 win over Liverpool, and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Justin has joined the likes of Morgan, Fofana, and Castagne in the recovery room, meaning that the Premier League side should struggle at the back in Thursday’s showdown.
