Slovácko and Pardubice meet at Městský fotbalový stadion Miroslava Valenty, in a match for the 6th round of the Czech League. This will be the first direct confrontation between these two teams, as they have never met before. Attention to the home factor, since Slovácko tends to achieve different results at home and abroad.
After 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, the home team is currently in 8th position, with 7 points won. In their last match, they lost in an away match against Slavia Praha by (3‑0), after in the previous match they had won by (0‑2) away, in a match against Teplice. This is a team that curiously has been stronger as a visitor than in their home games, since in the last 30 games they have recorded 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses as a visitor; against 6 victories, 3 draws and 6 defeats in his stadium. In their last 10 home games, Slovácko has recorded 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. Their defense has not been very strong, since they have suffered goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition.
Despite coming from defeat, Slovacko’s campaign is not bad, but he knows that to fight for something better he must have more regularity. When facing an opponent of your size, you need to be more careful, because if you neglect it, you can get complicated in the match. Therefore, it is necessary to have control of the game early to have a better chance of obtaining a positive result.
After 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, the visiting team is currently in 6th position, with 7 points won. In their last match, they beat Slovan Liberec at home by (3‑0), after losing away in the previous match, in a match against Baník Ostrava, by (3‑0). This is a team that presents similar results at home and away, so it is not usually affected by the home factor, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses as a visitor; against 10 wins and 5 draws in his stadium. In the last 10 away matches played for all competitions, Pardubice won 3, tied 2 and lost 5. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition, so they were not very strong defensively.
Last day’s win sent Pardubice up the table and he certainly won’t want to lose positions. So he will have to work hard, because the championship is not easy. It is more difficult to play away from home, but you can’t help but look for good results. Therefore, it is necessary to show more commitment to get points.
