The Czech Liga continues to experience steady improvements, season after season. The two biggest teams, Slavia Prague and Viktoria Plzen, are in the top 60 clubs according to the UEFA rankings.
Analysing the league a bit more closely, the competition has become tight and intense in the last five seasons. In the 2021/22 campaign, Viktoria Plzen only edged their rivals, Slavia Prague, in the championship round after both sides had gone neck and neck in the regular season.
This term, not much has changed. Michal Bilek’s side lead by just a point. Indeed, both teams have won the same number of matches until now. It is sensible to expect this rivalry to go down to the wire.
The Czech Liga has also continued to produce goals every gameweek, making it one of the hottest goals markets in Europe for punters. And with 15 matches played, some unique patterns have become visible.
Here are four betting options that could help punters earn big in the Czech Liga this season:
Over 2.5 Goals In Matches Involving Slavia Prague
But for Viktoria Plzen, Slavia would have won five straight Czech Liga titles. They know this better than anyone. The same pattern will likely continue. And as cliche as this might sound, the head-to-head result between them and their rivals might just determine where the trophy ends. They have lost the first instalment already. There is still a long way to go until then, anyway.
After their draw against Sivasspor in the Europa Conference League, the former Czech champions have now failed to qualify for the knockout stages. Cervenobili finished in third place.
The priority, as things stand, will be the league where they trail the leaders by just one point. Jindrich Trpisovski’s men have the best attack in the country by a stretch. Slavia Prague are the highest scorers in the division with 47 goals.
On the wings, the 46-year-old manager continues to rely on his Nigerian players, Moses Usor and Peter Olayinka.Both forwards have scored eight goals combined, with the latter having a better goal-per-game ratio.
Slavia Prague have averaged 3.1 goals per match in the league this season. The Prague-based team has recorded 12 over 2.5 matches this term, including the last four.
This is an excellent betting option for anyone interested in the Czech League.
Under 3.5 Goals In Matches Involving Sigma
The last two seasons, Sigma finished in 9th place. Even more fascinating was that their comparative statistics in both seasons were similar.
In the 2020/21 campaign, only one team had more draws than Vaclav Jilek’s men. They scored and conceded 40 goals. Last term, only two sides drew more matches than Hanaci. Similar to the previous season, they scored 39 goals and conceded 37.
However, in Jilek’s second spell as manager of the club, they have improved defensively. Only the top three teams have conceded fewer goals than Sigma.
The summer signing of Lukáš Vraštil has helped bring defensive solidity to the team. The 28-year-old’s partnership with veteran Vit Benes has continued to thrive.
Sigma have conceded more than two goals in a match just once this season. They have kept five clean sheets in the process. The Olomouc-based team has played out 14 under 3.5 goals results in 15 matches.
This is a sure option for punters with eyes on the Czech Liga.
Goal/goal In Matches Involving Brno
After a disappointing 2020/21 season that saw Brno relegated, they have immediately regained promotion. Indeed, Finta are holding their own quite honourably, sitting in 8th place. More importantly, they are four points behind the fourth-place team.
Richard Dostalek’s side had the joint-best attack in the Czech National League last season, scoring 61 goals. In 29 games, Jakub Reznicek scored 18 goals.
Dostalek continues to favour an expressive attack, even at the expense of a vulnerable defence. Michal Sevcik gets the role of dictating the play and creating chances. The 20-year-old has scored seven goals and assisted a further six—the most in the Czech Liga. This season, Reznicek has scored 10 goals in 14 games, more than any other player in the division.
The implication is, of course, that Brno concede in every game.They have managed just two clean sheets this season.
Brno have recorded 10 goal/goal results in the Czech Liga. This option looks sure to deliver the goods for the long haul.
Over 1.5 Goals In Matches Involving Sparta Prague
While Sparta Prague have not won the league in a while, they remain the most successful side with 12 league titles. In fact, the Iron Sparta have made the top three in the last four campaigns.
Having lost to Viking in the second qualifying round of the Europa Conference League, the focus shifts to the league.
To be fair, it will take something considerably catastrophic for them to win, as they trail the leaders by nine points. Their Achilles heel has been dropping points from winning positions. They have dropped six points from leading positions. Even worse is the fact that these points were dropped against teams in the bottom five.
Brian Priske’s men have recorded five draws this season. Only one team has garnered more. Asger Sørensen and Martin Vitík have struggled to ensure stability in defence.
Sparta Prague have recorded 12 over 1.5 scorelines in 14 matches this term. This option is almost guaranteed to benefit punters all season.
