If there was any need for proof that Mlada Boleslav is nothing more than a pale shadow of the team cruising its way in Uefa Cup a few years ago, Viktoria Plzen provided the evidence. The hosts lost by two goals to none and also had the player eliminated, and will now tried to recuperate the points away at Vysocina Jihlava.
Match: Vysocina Jihlava vs Mlada Boleslav
Bet: Over 2,5 goals
Odds: Betfair 2.44
Vysocina Jihlava is a team that fought the same crushing odds to avoid relegation ever since it promoted to the first division, so this season brings nothing new. They stand only four points above the danger zone and will play with a sense of urgency that might surprise their opponents. Jihlava also saw one of its defensive players sent off in the previous round, but their offensive compartment is intact. For a coach whose objective is to save the team from relegation, Komnacky fields very offensive starting formations.
Unfortunately for him the team lacks a quality striker and sending three players upfront didn’t work as expected in the previous rounds. One reason for why the hosts might emerge victorious despite their offensive woes is that Mlada Boleslav has nothing to lose, no reason to defend. The only way of saving an otherwise below par season is by making a final rally and secure an European cup spot despite all odds.
Recent results might not warrant a high scoring game and Vysocina Jihlava certainly doesn’t have world-class strikers, but punters should still choose the over 2.5 goals bet. The odds are downright spectacular with Betfair and as long as they stay above 2.30, these wagers should be a no-brainer.
