Banik Ostrava vs Dynamo Ceske Budejovice
Czech Republic 1. Liga
Date: Friday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Mestsky stadion (Ostrava).
Ostrava and Dynamo Ceske Budejovice are aiming for the first point of the 2020/21 season when they lock horns on Friday.
At the end of some moderate performances, Ostrava finished 6th last season, while Dynamo just behind at a 2 point drift.
The teams had contrasting fortunes on match-day 1 as Ostrava will be happy to have earned a point at Karvina, while Budejovice were demolished 6-0 by the reigning champions Slavia Prague.
There is much to look forward to this tie as these two teams are evenly matched on paper.
Anyhow, Ostrava despite their hot and cold nature have an excellent head-to-head record against Dynamo having won 6 of the last 11 games across all competitions while losing just once.
At home, the record is even better with three wins on the bounce and unbeaten in 6. Furthermore, Ceske Budejovice have won here twice in 18 attempts since 1995.
As things stand, a home win looks good to me and we could expect some goals and 5 of their last 6 h2h meetings at this ground saw both teams scoring while the latest three produced over 2.5 goals. We have seen some thrilling scorelines like 2-1, 3-2 and 4-3 in the most three recent duels between these sides at the Mestsky stadion.
