Teplice vs Liberec Prediction & Betting tips
FC Slovan Liberec is without a doubt one of the most successful clubs in the Czech Republic. With just two exceptions, the Modrobílí have also regularly qualified for the championship playoffs in the last seven years, which they won in 2012 for the last time. According to the current standings, the blue-whites would have missed the playoffs.
All the more, the seventh of the table away from FK Teplice is under pressure to close the gap to the top teams. After all, one game less only lacks four points to third place. Which bookmaker at Teplice against Liberec offers the best odds for Modrobílí’s away win can be found in the betting comparison.
It is striking that the bookmakers offer fairly balanced quotes for this lot. So the Modrobílí basically go slightly favored in this away game. However, with Teplice against Liberec, the prognosis must take into account that after the long Corona break, both clubs do not really know where they stand after the long Corona break, as at the beginning of the season.
Nevertheless, the recent trend also speaks clearly for the guests. After all, Liberec could not win a competitive game in 2020 and scored only one of nine possible points in only one goal scored in the three games after the winter break. This contrasts with the Modrobílí, who won all four competitive games in 2020 and in turn only had to concede a single goal.
So our recommendation at Teplice against Liberec goes to tip 2. Further analyzes and betting recommendations for the leagues starting again at the weekend can be found in the category Betting Tips Football International.
FC Teplice has existed since 1945 and, although it has never been possible to win a national championship, can look back on a very successful history.
In 2003 and 2009, the runner-up of the year 1999 won the national cup of the Czech Republic. In the 1999/2000 season, the yellow-blues also participated in the final qualifying round for the UEFA Champions League, where they narrowly failed at Borussia Dortmund.
At least in the last decade, the Skláři did not do too much. With only three fifth places, FC Teplice qualified three times for the playoffs to the championship, in which, however, there was no success.
Last summer, Stanislav Hejkal’s men, whose contract expires in five weeks, ended the 2018/19 season only in a sobering tenth place. It would be all the more important that a forgiving farewell now succeeds, because with seven games still open, there is currently a gap of eight points to tenth with which the Skláři could still escape the relegation playoffs.
The fact that relegation is at risk these days is also due to the fact that the yellow-blue came badly from the winter break. After two defeats in a row, the last game before the Corona interruption in a goalless draw against 1. FC Slovácko was the only counter in 2020.
No wonder that at Teplice against Liberec, the odds of bookmakers speak against the home side, who also lost right-back Alois Hycka by dismissing the point when the point was won shortly before the final whistle. The 29-year-old is now also missing at the start of the season, which certainly does not diminish the defensive worries.
So the FK Teplice has already conceded 35 goals in the previous 23 season games – the sixth most conceded goals in the entire Synot League.
FC Slovan Liberec also falls short of expectations when looking at the current table. 36 points from 23 league games currently give the three-time national champion of the Czech Republic a sobering seventh place, with which the qualification for the playoffs for the championship round would currently be missed.
As of now, the Modrobílí would fight with Budejovice, Sparta Prague and Sigma Olomouc for a starting place for the qualification round for the Europa League, which certainly does not correspond to the ambition of the club, which once advanced to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup in the 2001/02 season .
Accordingly, the future of the coach is also uncertain in Liberec. Pavel Hoftych, who took over for Zsolt Hornyák last summer, was also only provided with a one-year contract, which logically has not been renewed so far, despite the lack of success.
After all, even predecessor Hornyák did not go beyond a one-year engagement with the traditional club, with which he had only finished sixth last summer. At least, however, the good start to 2020 gives hope that the season, which is closely scheduled until the end of June, will end in a conciliatory manner.
The Modrobílí won all four competitive games in 2020 and not only progressed one round in the cup, but also got the maximum result of nine points in league operations. The long Corona break could have killed this momentum a bit. Against this background, it makes the most sense to play tip 2 against Liberec at Teplice.
Finally, the hospital of the blue and whites has shrunk considerably in the past two months, so that coach Pavel Hoftych can largely draw on the full at the restart. Only Karel Knejzlik is missing, who was awarded in the first half of the season because he did not play a special role in the team.
The brilliant offensive of the Modrobílí also gives courage to continue the catch-up. 42 goals from 23 games correspond to the third best value in the Synot League, although top scorer Roman Potocny was transferred to Banik Ostrau at the end of January.
It is all the more important now that winter newcomer Jan Kuchta again closes this gap. Finally, in the last competitive game before the involuntary break, the 23-year-old shooting star only achieved another double for his new employer, with whom he is already fully committed.
