Czech Republic 1st League returns Saturday with Slovan Liberec and Teplice
By the time Teplice and Slovan Liberec kick off their Czech Republic 1st League contest Saturday at noon EDT, two and a half months will have passed since the last league game was played (March 9).
But the 1st League, and the Czech Republic, join so many others around the world in reopening, and once these two teams finish round 24 of play, there will be six weeks of the season left before the league splits into its playoff guises.
Slovan Liberec had won four straight league games before the break, and will hope that it can continue that upward trend at the right time.
Of course, it is tough to call after such a long break, but Teplice has a minus-16 goal difference through 23 games and is sitting squarely in the midst of the relegation playoff battle, while Slovan Liberec’s goal difference is plus-11, and the club could with a win Saturday.
I will take the better team.
