Fenerbahce vs Slavia Prague: Top Free Betting Tips
Fenerbahce failed to qualify for the play-offs of the Europa League and thus, got sent to the 1/16 finals of the Europa Conference League. Slavia Prague managed to get second place in their ECL group, which was also one of the most difficult ones overall.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Games between Balkan teams are often explosive and goal-packed and we expect something like this from the first 1st leg of this 1/16 final. Both teams can score a lot of goals when they perform well and it will be a surprise not to see some action here. We think that they are almost equal in strength at this moment, so we also envision a draw, most likely – 1:1. Fenerbahce had quite a few BTTS games in the Europa League group stage while we can also say the same about Slavia Prague's games in the ECL, especially when they were away from home.
Match Result – Draw
First-leg matches often end in a draw. Although this is not really a factor, we have two teams that have about the same strengths. Fenerbahce have had a disappointing season in the Turkish Super Lig and already have no chances for the title. Slavia Prague, in turn, are the current leaders of the Czech 1. Liga and have been quite impressive on the domestic stage. Given that the Turkish league is generally stronger than the Czech elite league, we see these teams as equal and it is difficult to predict any side as a winner here.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
Both teams took a considerable number of corners in their previous matches in the EL or ECL. Especially in Slavia Prague's case, the team had at leas 9 corners in all of their six fixtures, so we are betting on the minimal number that we have seen in their games. Fenerbahce also took a lot of corners in most of their fixtures and there were often 12+. We expect that this match will be a serious battle with a lot of chances and a lot of misses that could turn into corners. Both sides will play attacking football, so this line should be an easy win.
