[UEFA Europa League] Slavia Praha VS Lokomotiv Astana 8.12 [Copy Link]

Slavia Prague: The Czechs want to overwinter in Europe ( Recent Form: W W W D W )
Slavia Prague did excellent business two weeks ago in the fifth round of the Europa League. The Czechs won in Group A with 0-2 at last minute Maccabi Tel Aviv and saw at the same time how Astana went 2-3 in the boat against Villarreal. Slavia Prague therefore rose to second place at the expense of Astana and therefore has the best papers in the final round to reach the knockout stage of the Europa League. A draw in the own Eden Arena is enough to keep the hope for European glory alive. The fact that Slavia Prague can stand up in Europe is mainly due to a recent Chinese takeover. A lot of money is suddenly available in the Czech capital and former Eredivisie players like Miroslav Stoch, Mick van Buren and Thomas Necid came to Prague. Biggest purchase, however, is the Portuguese midfielder Danny, who after nine years of loyal service at Zenit St. Petersburg chose an adventure in the Czech Republic. Danny needed some time to get used to the new circumstances, but has now become a key player in coach Jaroslav Silhavy's team. With a second place in the Czech League, Slavia Prague is doing fine, although the gap on the inapplicable leader Viktoria Plzen is no less than fourteen points. The Czech title fight is therefore almost decided, but in Europe the men of Silhavy can still stand out.

Astana: Kazakhstan must win ( Recent Form: L W W L W )
Astana must mainly have her home games, but the Kazakhstan two weeks ago with a 2-3 defeat their multiple recognize in the Spanish Villarreal. The team now has to be on Czech soil of Slavia Prague to write history and become the very first Kazakh club ever to reach the knockout stage of a European tournament. Astana usually does not do well in European away games. Only two of the last European duels on foreign soil resulted in a Kazakh victory. Virtually all of Astana's hopes are based on the African attack duo Junior Kabananga and Patrick Twumasi. The two strikers are responsible for the last seven European hits of the yellow-blue. In any case, Astana has been able to prepare in peace for the decisive cracker on Thursday-evening, as coach Stanimir Stoilov recently took the Kazakhstan national title with a point lead over close striker Kairat Almaty. The tandem Twumasi and Kabananga were once again well on track with thirteen and nineteen league goals in their own country.

After all, Slavia Prague is a favorite for reaching the next round, but it is precisely in the fact that the Czechs also have a draw enough that there is a great danger. The team of the home team is now running the risk of limping on two thoughts. Are you going to attack or are you just going to defend? In addition, Astana with Twumasi and Kabananga naturally has two valves. In the last three Europa League matches, at least one of them managed to make the net bulge. I therefore put some small change on a goal by both Twumasi and Kabananga. For both players, the odd is in my opinion on the high side.
