quality on home side, no missing woes (back is last one Maksim Afinogenov). Slovan played 4 draws in regular time last 4 games, cannot it always. Now some players missing and SKA with Ilya Kovalchuk should won this easier


Zlín is decorated with a good defense, but now the mowing injury

The fact that it is on the second rung Zlín continuous table has merit especially precise Beranů defense. In statistics obrdržených Zlín goals are third best in the league for Slavia and Pilsen. In addition, currently has good form the team that managed to win four of the last five games. Another advantage is that the opponent that his outdoor rinks permanently successful.

Aries gets defensive but lately blow after blow. In the last encounter with Chomutov which, although Zlín won, lost two straight Beka stable. Figure in the hospital Hamrlík Martin and Martin Matějíček, even before the duel was injured also Oldrich Horak. Young talent Patrick Urbanec is also at the Junior World Championships in Russia Ufa. “In this constellation we were happy with the point,” suggested the club web Zlin coach Rostislav Vlach.

Last season they make great resault loosing in semi finals but hard to expect something like this in season 12/13. Too manny important players left, club dont have money, coach is also new and team is young.

On the other side Vienna will not have problems with match fitness, they played European Trophey. They decide to change team after very bad season, main players (and coach) stayed but they bring some quality players. They played very good in pre season and i expect their win today
