The first leg ended Slavia Praha-Leicester City 0-0. All is set for the decider in this Europa League 16th Finals fixture!

It's no vacation for neither Leicester nor Slavia Praha as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

Slavia Praha have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1400 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

Leicester City form and stats

Overall Premier League stats at home this season for Leicester City are 6-1-5 (wins-draw-losses). On the other hand, in the Europa League, Leicester City has performed like this (both home and away): 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss.

Happy days for Leicester in their previous game, a Premier League match away at Aston Villa that ended with a 2-1 victory. A 0-0 draw away in the Europa League before that, with Slavia Praha the opponent.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Leicester as they have a new game in only three days, a Premier League match thankfully also at home. Arsenal are visiting.

The Leicester City fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 19 goals in 12 league matches. 16 goals have been conceded. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 0 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Slavia Praha form and stats

Slavia's mission in Europa League last season failed in the quarter-finals against Chelsea.

Slavia Praha's travelling support has been rewarded for their time and money so far this season, having witnessed Slavia Praha collect 24 points from their 10 away matches in the Czech Liga. 7 victories and 3 draws have created these points (and only 0 defeats). When we have look at the Europa League statistics, we find 4W-1D-2L. This is both home and away. Things are running smoothly for Slavia Praha who hasn't tasted defeat in their last 32 matches, regardless of venue and tournament. Their last defeat was against Slovacko. Slavia Praha are enjoying a nice run from their away games now, having played 15 in a row without losing.

Slavia are the visiting side once again, their previous game being the 1-1 draw at Teplice. A 0-0 draw was the result before that, hosting Leicester City in the Europa League.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Slavia Praha manager J. Trpišovský as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Slovacko.

The prediction for this game is lots of goals as Slavia alone have scored more than three on average in their league games away (31 from 10 played). It's not easy to score on Slavia as they have only conceded 8 goals from these away games. It's worth mentioning that 8 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.

Head 2 Head

The most recent history between these sides is the Slavia Praha - Leicester 0-0 played earlier this season.

The UEFA Europa League, abbreviated as UEL and commonly referred to as just the Europa League, is an annual football club competition organised by UEFA. It is the second-tier competition for football clubs in Europa, beneath the UEFA Champions League in value and importance. Teams qualify through their performance in their national leagues and cup competitions. Some teams qualify from the Champions League; more precisely the teams who are knocked out in the playoff qualifying round and the third-place finishers of the group stage. The winner of the Europa League qualifies for the Champions League in their next competitive season.
