Slavia - Sparta

Czech Republic
Asian Handicap
Pick: AH +0.75 Sparta
Odds: 1.7
Stake: 1

Match date: 11/04/2021

The biggest Czech derby will be played in Prague today, and in the 26th round city rivals Slavia and Sparta will meet (6.30 pm CET). They are also two leading teams in the Championship, but Slavia has a 14 points advantage, so they are calmly waiting for this match, while Sparta is defending second place, which brings a place in the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League.

Slavia played one of the biggest matches in club history in the Europa League quarter-finals against Arsenal in London on Thursday. It ended 1:1 and Slavia has a very good result for the return match next Thursday at their stadium.

Of course, for coach Jindrich Trpišovsky's team, this duel against Arsenal is an absolute priority at the moment. This derby against Sparta is also important, but Jindrich Trpišovsky has a comfortable situation and today he can rotate the squad and rest some best players, which he will do.

Not all first team players will be absent, but some will certainly be on the bench, while due to injury, defensive midfielder Traore and central defender Kudela, who also scored five goals in this Championship, will not play today.

Sparta is in second place with one point more than Slovacko and two points more than Jablonec, so this derby is very important to them. Sparta replaced his coach in February, the very experienced former Czech coach Pavel Vrba came and his results are excellent. Spartans has led Vrba to victory five times in the last six league matches, and against Jablonec won in the Cup 4:1 in the week.

They are waiting for this derby with big optimism in Sparta, they are in good shape, and Slavia is tired and exhausted and her thoughts are in next match against Arsenal. Vrba announced a very offensive line-up, and although his attackers Kozak and Juliš, who scored 15 goals together, were injured, this wasn't felt in the previous rounds. Sparta is unbeaten in their last 6 league matches (5W, 1D) and scored 21 goals and 7 conceded. Also, Sparta is unbeaten in their last 7 away league matches (5W, 2D) and scored 12 goals and only 3 conceded.

Prague derby is usually an uncertain match in which all three results are equally possible, and this time Slavia isn't a favorite as bookmakers see it. No fans, home coach will rotate his line-up, team is tired and focused on Arsenal in the Europa League. Sparta has been playing great lately and can definitely stay undefeated today.
