Jablonec to Win
Jablonec should be in cruise control on Thursday after their emphatic first-leg triumph over Zilina last week and we’re tipping the vastly superior Czechia outfit to come out on top again in Slovakia. Jablonec looked a cut above when they trounced their Playoff opponents 5-1 at the Stadion Střelnice and the evidence from that one-sided skirmish suggests a second victory is on the cards this week.
Over 2.5 Goals
A net-shredding six goals hit the net in last week’s first leg encounter in Czechia and we expect more entertainment on Thursday when Zilina attempt to restore some pride on their own patch. Each of the last five and eight of the last ten matches involving the Sosoni have produced over 2.5 goals and their knack of producing high-scoring fixtures means the goal markets are worth sticking to this week.
Over 1.5 Jablonec Goals
Jablonec butchered Zilina last week, notching four of their five goals in the first half of the hammering they dished out at the Stadion Střelnice. Petr Rada’s impressive team cut through their opponents with ease in Czechia and having already shown that they have the tools to open up the Zilina defence, we’re tipping Jablonec to register over 1.5 times again in the second leg.
Zilina vs Jablonec: Match Preview
Pavol Staňo’s youthful Zilina side successfully battled their way through two earlier rounds of the Europa Conference League qualification phase before they hit a brick wall in Czechia last week. The manner of their defeat and the size of the margin they need to overturn means their chances of making the Group Stage are almost non-existent this week.
In what had been billed as a potentially close encounter, Jablonec showed their class to annihilate Zilina in Czechia and their five-goal display all but confirmed their place in the Europa Conference League Group Stage. Like his counterpart, Petr Rada has a number of promising young players at his disposal, though it was veteran trio Thomas Hübschman, Vaclav Pilař and Martin Doležal who were among Jablonec’s key first-leg performers.
