Bayer also have 2 players out (Bender Alavio) but remaining are on really the same high level.
Last game into European League Slavia won with opponent who was playing from 22 minutes with 10 players. This game Nicea should win if hosts won’t have the same kind of luck. Czech league is not playing at the moment so players are without match cycles as their opponent. Slavia coach will have only 14 players to his disposal, cannot play: Kudela, Provod, Boril.
Lech into this season is highflying showing really good football on the European level. There is everything in their team: unconventional schematics, tram spirit. We had opportunity to see them in action with Rangers and Lisbon where coaches of both teams despite of Leach lost spoke only in superlatives.

Tasks looks to be ease because due to quarantine and injures into guest team cannot play a lot of first team players: Fai C. Laifis K, Muleka J, Pavlovic D, Shamir E, Sissako M, Tapsoba A, Vanheusden Z.
