Gambrinus Liga: Week Five Tips

August 16, 2013

Week Four Review Well, we had a very poor and rather unfortunate time last weekend. Olomouc were leading Teplice 1-0 until Varadi was sent off and the game finished 2-2. Sparta edged past a plucky Bohemians 1905 side 2-1 in the pouring rain after trailing the first half 1-0 and finally, our misery was complete […]

Week Three Review It took Mlada Boleslav a few weeks to get the engines going but they are up and running after knocking four past Slovan Liberec. Jan Chramosta and Jiri Stajiner, inevitability, were among the scorers for Boleslav and they should follow up against Slovacko at the weekend. Let’s not dwell on Slavia’s 3-2 […]

But there already appears to be ominous signs for the rest of the league as Plzeň and Sparta occupy the top two spots after a glut of goals. It’s hard to envisage anything but a two horse race this season. There were some […]

Slavia Praha kicked off their season with a frustrating 1-1 home draw against Banik Ostrava. Missed chances and defensive mistakes cost Slavia two points here, however, there were signs of encouragement with the amount of chances created in a second half rally.  Over 7500 fans were dotted around Eden and the combination of the sweltering […]

We are just ten days away from the new Gambrinus Liga season kicking off and I can feel a sense of cautious optimism building around Eden. Pre-season has habit of breeding false confidence – I should know – but Slavia seem to be heading in the right direction after an excellent end to last season. […]
