Baník Ostrava form and stats

5-4-3 (win-draw-lost) are the Fortuna Liga numbers at home for Baník Ostrava so far this season.

Ostrava manager O. Smetana and his team return home after a 0-0 draw away versus Slovan Liberec (placed 5th) in the Fortuna Liga. A defeat was the result before that one, 1-2 away at Slovácko.

A painful moment in the game against Slovan Liberec was the missed penalty kick from Patrizio Stronati in the 39th minute. A goal there would obviously have changed the match and probably the outcome.
