Podbrezová shared the glory with Zilina in their last match, an away game that ended all square 1-1. A strong away win before that one, visiting Žilina II and winning 2-1.

M. Breznaník was able to secure the draw 1-1 in the game against Zilina after coming on as a substitute and scoring the final goal. In the starting lineup today?

Poprad form and stats

There's been little loot from Poprad's travels as they have only collected 6 points from 11 away games in the 2. Liga. Poprad, who have the most conceded goals (67) in 2. Liga, only have 2 wins to counter their 9 defeats and 0 draws. Football is a nightmare at the moment for Poprad who have suffered through a nine match losing streak. If there's light at the end of the tunnel it's certainly not visible for the supporters. It's all red in the travel logs of Poprad, having lost five matches in a row as the visiting team.

Poprad failed to get anything from their last game, a 2. Liga home match vs Skalica (placed 3rd) that ended with defeat 2-4. Preceding that game, the 0-4 loss visiting Banska Bystrica's place.

As you can tell from the result, the match against Skalica was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today?

Nobody expects Poprad to collect anything from a game like this. The team has been David versus Goliath 18 times before, with the overall statistics of won seven, draw four and lost seven. When defeated, four matches have been lost by two or more goals.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Poprad as they have only managed to score 8 times from 11 away games in the league. There are big problems for the Poprad defense as they have conceded 33 goals in 11 away games.

Head 2 Head
