Slavia Prague – FC Astana – Here is another direct clash for the knockout stage of the European League, because within the framework of the last sixth round of A, the Czech Republic and Kazakhstan, Slavia from Prague and Astana team meet. However, in a much better situation, this decisive match is Slavia, which is in the second place on the table and has a score of more than the third Astana, so that they are even enough to pass in the next round. Let’s say that their first match in Astana ended with a score of 1:1.
In addition to his visit to Far East Kazakhstan, the team saw two wins over Macau from Tel Aviv, and sparked Spain’s Villarreal with a rookie and home defeat so that eight points won second place in Group A, with three points less than Villarreal who has already hit the placement in the knockout stage. On the other hand, their next rivals Astana have both defeated Spaniards, and that is why they now have that point less than Slavie.
Otherwise, this team saw the Czech champion after eight years of waiting, but this season it is difficult to repeat this result because after 16 played wagers they have as much as 14 points less than the leading Plzena, and in all likelihood there is a great fight at least for the second place that also leads to the Champions League qualifications. Regarding the problem with the composition before this duel with Astana, injuries to Svento and Flo and an experienced midfielder, Rotan, are out of control.
When it comes to the Astana team, we have already said that these Slavie guest appearances from the third place on the table and score less than their next rivals, so it is quite clear that their placement in the knockout stage should be won in Prague. Otherwise, the four consecutive champions of Kazakhstan have also achieved both victories over Maccabi, but unlike the Czechs in the Villarreal match, they have not won any points, so they have this lag behind the last car.
In addition, we have to know that their championship is over a month ago, so they are not in the real competition, but are, at this time, much more distant than their rivals from Prague. Otherwise, Astana has reached its fourth consecutive title of the national champion thanks to only one point more than Kairat, while they can also boast of having played in the group stage of the Champions League two years ago. Let’s say that only the injured midfielder Kleinheisler is currently in the machine.
