Opava form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Czech Liga this season. Opava have only managed 3 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses from their games here at Stadion v Městských sadech.

Opava faced defeat in their previous match, away at Slovan Liberec (0-4). Previous to that game, a home match hosting Sigma Olomouc in a game that was won 2-1.

Opava were outplayed and humiliated in their previous game, as mentioned in the paragraph above. They will need to reinstall their confidence before this one.

This is expected to be a close game, with Opava perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Opava as a small favourite), we find five games. Opava has won two of these, drawn one and lost two.

The manager J. Balcarek will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Teplice in only four days.

Opava have scored 7 league goals here from 11 matches, not a lot. On the other hand, Opava have conceded 15 goals.

Karviná have succeeded in guarding their own goal lately, led by their goalkeeper. It's been 364 minutes since they last conceded in Czech Liga.

Karviná had fun at their own home (Stadion v Městských sadech) last time out, beating Pribram 2-0. Abdulrahman Taiwo and Kristi Qose scored. That result followed a home victory 2-0 versus Pribram.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found one similar match played by Karviná in our archives, and the results are: zero wins for Karviná, zero draws and one defeat.

A quick return to home after this game, as Karviná are hosting Sparta Praha in the Czech Liga only four days away.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Karviná as they have only managed to score 9 times from 12 away games in the league. As for defending, Karviná rarely keep clean sheets as they have conceded 21 goals from these away matches.
