Match Preview

Slavia Prague’s Czech Cup final win midweek gave them their first league and cup double in 77 years. So it’s not a bad time to face fierce rivals Sparta Prague, a team Slavia are unbeaten against in the last seven Prague derbies (W3, D4).
With just one defeat at home this league campaign (W14, D2, L1), and a league-high 2.65 goals scored on average per home match, it’s no wonder Slavia clinched their fifth Czech top-flight title. However their last three home victories all involved both teams scoring, whilst the last two involved a Slavia winner after the 80th minute.
With just one win in their last four away league games (W1, D1, L2), it’s been a disappointing end to the campaign for third-placed Sparta, who have scored an average of 1.38 goals per top-flight road trip this term. However with half of their away goals being netted after the 60th minute, Sparta could spring a surprise late on.
In fact the visitors have turned a league-high four half-time away draws into victory this season, so it may come as little surprise that all of Sparta’s goals across the last ten H2Hs held here were netted after the break.
Players to watch: There’s never a dull moment when Tomáš Souček stars in this derby – the Slavia man has scored four goals, been shown two yellow cards, and conceded an own goal across the last four H2Hs.
He may be Sparta’s top league scorer, but Guélor Kanga has still picked up more yellow cards (13) than goals this term (11).
Stat attack: Slavia have scored in both halves in a league-high 64.71% of their home matches.
Five of Sparta’s six away league defeats arrived via a one-goal margin.
There’s been an average of 7.0 yellow cards shown per match across the last five competitive H2Hs.
