Skalica form and stats

Skalica are steadily winning 2. Liga games and points here at Mestský štadión. 8 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats is the summary from 11 games. Hopes of three in a row are alive for Skalica after consecutive victories at their own ground.

No payout for Skalica in their previous match, an away game at Zlate Moravce that ended in defeat 1-3. In the game before, an away victory in the 2. Liga match versus Poprad with a 4-2 scoreline.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Skalica have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found four games) they have won four times, drawn zero and lost zero.

With an average of more than two goals per home game in the league (26 in 11 games), Skalica's attacking play is working. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 3 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. From these home matches, Skalica have conceded only 10 goals.

Liptovský Mikuláš form and stats

The away team, who have the the best goal difference (+14) away in 2. Liga, have been very comfortable on their travels so far, racking up 7 wins, 2 draws and only 1 loss in the 2. Liga. The away team travel with confidence. Not since the Partizan Bardejov game have they lost an away game, meaning Liptovský has taken points from nine away matches in a row.

Did you know that the longest clean sheet streak is 1816 minutes? This record is held by Mazaropi when he played in Vasco da Gama. Liptovský goalkeeper Matej Luksch is eager to challenge this, with his 200 minutes of keeping balls out from the net.

There might be some fixture complaints from Liptovský Mikuláš as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the Slovakia Cup match against Slovan Bratislava (0-1). Prior to that match, a home win 1-0 against Banska Bystrica in the 2. Liga.

Liptovský are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is two wins, one draw and three defeats. From a total of six matches.

The Liptovský manager M. Petrus has got the team scoring on the road, with 24 away goals in 10 league matches. 10 goals have been conceded by Liptovský in these games. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
