Gambrinus Liga: Week Five Tips

August 16, 2013 by

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 […]

The inquest has begun. A 3-2 home defeat against Olomouc left Slavia Praha in the bottom two with just one point out of a possible nine. A desperate start. Confidence, among the fans at least, was high before kick-off as everyone was expecting Slavia to get their first win of the season but the reality […]

Week Two Review The beating that Bohemka took from Plzen two weeks was always a difficult one to measure.

Milan Baroš scored his first goals since returning to the Czech Republic this weekend and in the process, whether he meant to or not, the ex Liverpool striker went someway into repairing his ailing reputation. The hat-trick, his first in Czech football, he notched in the 3-0 win over Hradec Králové was crowned by giving his […]

The Czech Republic were humiliated by a Finnish side ranked 96th in the world – 77 places lower than the Czechs. Sierra Leone, Libya, Haiti and Canada are all deemed significantly superior according to FIFA’s latest rankings. However, to gather some perspective, let’s remember England and Portugal are ranked third and fourth respectively. Galatasary defender, […]
