Head-to-Head

 
Slavia Prague and Leicester City have never met before.

Slavia Prague Form


Slavia Prague’s only defeats this season have been in Europe, with three losses in 27 games coming in UEFA Champions League qualifying and the Europa League. 

Victories over Bayer Leverkusen (1-0), Nice (3-2) and Hapoel Beer Sheva (3-0) at home in the group stages means they have now won 12 out of 14 home games in all competitions this season.

They qualified for the knockout stages as runners-up to Leverkusen, the only team to beat them in the last 19 matches.

Slavia have scored at least three goals in their last six games with forwards Jan Kuchta and Abdallah Dipo Sima both notching 11 league goals this season.

The problem has been at other end with Slavia keeping two clean sheets in their last six matches. One of those did come in the 3-0 weekend win over FK Pardubice.

Slavia Prague Injuries and Team News


Petr Sevcik, Yusuf, David Hovorka, Mick van Buren and Taras Kacharaba all look likely to be ruled out.

Forward Stanislav Tecl has a chance of returning from injury.

Leicester City Form


Leicester are in fine form and come off the back of a significant 3-1 win over champions Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers side have suffered just one defeat in their last 14 games. That came in a 3-1 slip-up at home to Leeds in January.

Although they finished as group winners, Leicester’s away form in Europe League may be a slight cause for concern. 

At home, they were prolific in winning all three games to nil. However, a 1-0 defeat to Ukrainian outfit Zorya combined with a late comeback in a 3-3 draw with Braga illustrates their away frailties.

Leicester City Injuries and Team News

 
Leicester are significantly hamstrung with their injuries, particularly in the full back area.

James Justin and Timothy Castagne are out, and they are joined by centre-backs Wesley Fofana and Wes Morgan, midfielder Dennis Praet and forward Ayoze Perez.

Verdict

Slavia Prague’s home form should not be ignored, and Leicester may be content to remain in the tie and back themselves at home in the second leg.
