Brno couldn't have handpicked many more difficult returns to Czech Republic's top-flight than a home clash against Sparta Praha. They host Vaclav Kotal's side – who finished third last season – in the first meeting between these two teams since March 2018.

Can they mark the start of the new campaign with an impressive win against tough opposition on Saturday evening?

Or will they be humbled after a mixed friendly run ended with a narrow 2-1 win last week? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Brno vs Sparta Praha Betting Tips

Brno lost 3-2 to second-tier SK Lisen on August 12, yet managed to beat superior top-division opposition in Fastav Zlin three days later.

That rather reiterates the unpredictability of pre-season friendly results, which shouldn't define a team's future success or lack thereof. Adrian Cermak and Marek Vintr netted the second-half goals in an important turnaround victory for Miloslav Machalek's men.

Important in the sense that they've finished their friendlies with a morale-boosting victory, mind. He'll have a selection headache to ponder – does he start Marek Vintr here? Or stick with Ondrej Pachlopnik down the wing?

By contrast, Sparta Praha had to overturn a two-goal deficit to draw late against Wolfsberger AC on August 12.

Matej Hanousek and Adam Hlozek were on the scoresheet, with the latter continuing to impress since his first-team breakthrough last year. Hlozek, who turned 18 last month, is widely regarded as the country's most exciting young prospect and should be watched accordingly here.

Although goalscoring midfielder Guelor Kanga (12) departed for Serbian side FK Crvena zvezda last month, they still possess reliable creative firepower. Former Aston Villa forward Libor Kozak (14) and Benjamin Tetteh (8) were Sparta's top goalscorers last season.

Brno vs Sparta Praha Correct Score Predictions

A neutral would love to see Brno mark their top-flight return with victory. However, their H2H record against Sparta Praha speaks for itself – just three wins from 18 meetings. For that reason, plus Sparta's determination to mount a serious title challenge this term, I'm backing the visitors here.
