Servette vs Slavia Prague Predictions


A closely fought contest seems likely at the Stade de Genève. Both teams have seen BTTS regularly this season, so I’m backing a repeat outcome in Lancy with the points shared.

  • Servette have seen BTTS in each of their last 4 home matches
  • Servette have seen BTTS in 10 of their previous 12 games this season
  • Slavia Prague have seen BTTS in their last 4 away Europa League matches
  • Slavia Prague have seen BTTS in 6 of their last 8 away games

Head to Head


Servette host Slavia Prague 22 years after their only previous meeting in the Europa League in 2001.

The Swiss side emerged with a 2-1 aggregate success after a 1-0 home victory.

Servette Form


Last season’s Swiss Super League runners-up have made a slow start to the new season.

Dumped out of the Champions League qualifiers by Rangers, Servette have picked up just six points from six league games. 

René Weiler’s side lost back-to-back Super League games against Yverdon Sport and Young Boys before a morale-boosting 4-1 win at Bulle in the Schweizer Pokal.

Servette Team News


Head coach Weller has no injury concerns after Servette’s weekend cup victory.

Set to line up in a 4-4-2 formation, Chris Bedia and Dereck Kutesa will likely lead the Maroons’ attack.

Slavia Prague Form


Slavia arrive in Switzerland in good form, with just one loss in 12 games played this season.

Tied for top spot domestically with city rivals Sparta, Slavia maintained their strong run with a 1-0 road victory at Pardubice on Saturday.

Jindřich Trpišovský’s side sneaked into the Europa League group stages with a 3-2 aggregate playoff victory against Zorya.

Slavia Prague Team News


The Czechs have no fresh injury issues to deal with ahead of Thursday’s trip to Lancy. 

Trpišovský will likely field the same XI that edged past Zorya despite a 2-1 second-leg loss in Lublin. 

Verdict

This should prove an evenly-matched affair, and I like the chances of a low-scoring share of the spoils in Geneva.
