This match has finished. To watch current games go to the sections Today's Football Predictions, Football Betting Prediction for Tomorrow or Football Predictions for the Weekend.

Nitra came through a nervy relegation play-off battle against MFK Dubnica to emerge unscathed ahead of the new Superliga season. It seems typical then, that they host defending champions Slovan Bratislava to kick off the new campaign this weekend.

Will they cause an early upset and prove they've improved after a dismal showing last term? Or can Bratislava, who haven't been perfect in their recent friendlies, start the season with a win? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Nitra vs Slovan Bratislava Betting Tips

After an impressive finish to last season's campaign once play resumed in June, Slovan Bratislava have understandably waned slightly since. Competitively in 2020, they're still unbeaten (13 games). After seven successive victories and a draw to round off 2019-20 in style, they haven't been so convincing in recent friendlies.

Since their two-week break ended on July 25, Jan Kozak's side have two wins, two draws and a defeat. However, the 40-year-old will be expecting business as usual once the new season begins this weekend.

Although they lost top goalscorer Andraz Sporar in a £5.2m move to Sporting in January, Bratislava possess capable replacements. Rafael Ratao (nine league goals), Moha (six) and David Holman (five) all impressed at times last season.

Saturday's visitors also boast the services of Slovakia international Vladimír Weiss, who joined them on a free transfer in February. The former Manchester City winger, who possesses a lot of flair and creative qualities, will be itching to start the new season with aplomb. Nitra's backline could be in for a rough afternoon.

Nitra vs Slovan Bratislava Correct Score Predictions

Excuse me for scepticism, but I find it hard to believe – despite the aforementioned friendlies – that Bratislava don't prevail here. Just look at the H2H record between these two sides: in 17 previous fixtures, Bratislava are unbeaten against Saturday's hosts.

15 wins, two draws and a worrying ten goals scored against them over their last four games? Nitra could be in for an unwelcome return to league action this weekend.
