Slavia Praha vs Nice Prediction & Match Preview

Slavia Praha vs Nice
Europa League
Date: Thursday, 5 November 2020
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Sinobo Stadium.

Both these teams have posted three points on the board, and are still in contention to secure a ticket to the knockouts. However, it needs to ne noted that Bayer Leverkusen are in this same group, and they obviously will have plans to end up toppers.

As such, the Stitched as well as the Eagles need to shift into action soon, or risk an early elimination.

Considering the recent form of Jindrich Trpisovsky’s men, particularly at their home, as opposed to the struggles of their French counterparts – expect Slavia Praha to have an upper hand this Thursday.

Slavia Praha vs Nice: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Stitched had recorded a 4-1 win the last time these two locked horns. It was in 2017, and the game was a friendly.
  • Before that, these two were pitted against each other in 1997 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. Then, the Czech Republic team prevailed over two legs with an aggregate scorecard of 3-3, as they had slotted in more away goals.
  • They had lost six of the previous eight encounters against other French teams.
  • Patrick Vieira’s men have never faced any other Czech opponent.

Slavia Praha vs Nice: Prediction

The Stitched had just recorded a 1-0 win at home against favorites Bayer Leverkusen. In the meanwhile, the Eagles registered a 1-0 win at home against Hapoel Beer Sheva.

As things stand, Trpisovsky’s men have the upper hand. They were unbeaten in 22 of their previous 24 overall match-ups, and are on an 18-game unbeaten run at home.

They had also scored a total of 24 goals from their nine appearances at home, and had conceded a total of just two goals from their former 13 games here.

On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in six of their preceding ten overall fixtures, and had a total of just four wins away from home since September of 2019.

On top of all that, the Stitched also have a 100% unbeaten record against this rival in h2h encounters. Likely, expect Slavia Praha to extend their unbeaten run this Thursday.
