Senica form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Fortuna Liga this season. Senica, who have the fewest points (7) at home in Fortuna Liga, have only managed 1 win, 4 draws and 6 losses from their games here at OMS Arena.

The fans are hoping that Senica will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 0-1 away loss in the Fortuna Liga game against Zemplin Michalovce. Previous to that game, a home match hosting Sered in a game that was won 1-0.

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

Senica has scored 12 league goals at home this season, in 11 matches. Senica have conceded 22 goals in these home games, a significant number.

Bitter travels for Ružomberok as they have lost five games in a row away from home. The last time they avoided an away-from-home loss was the Pohronie match.

Ružomberok might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. DAC proved too strong as Ružomberok slumped to a 1-3 defeat in front of their own fans at Futbalový štadión MFK Ružomberok. A 0-1 defeat away at Nitra before that.
