UEFA Champions League 2012 Preview: Slovan-Liberec vs FC Shakhter Karagandy Predictions

Slovan Liberec faces FC Shakther Karagandy on July 18 in the first leg of the Second Qualifying Rounds.

Slovan-Liberec Preview

Liberec based on its performance on previous years, may not be the strongest team of the Czech Republic. It can be argued that for the last season, they only capitalized on a failed Sparta Praha’s performance (the team with the most championships) and Victoria Plzen’s distraction while targeting the EU cups. They won the Czech championship for only the third time in club’s history.

Slovan Liberec though did not lose in their last six matches, managing to only draw in two of them. Their scoring average was 2.17 for the 6 games.

FC Shakhter Karagandy Preview

FC Shakhter Karagandy was a member of the Kazakhstan Premier League since its founding in 1995. Before winning their first championship in 2011 (the reason while they are in UEFA Champions today), they have only reached third place two times (1995 and 2007).

Shakhter Karagandy lost two of their last six matches. Their scoring average was 2.33 for the 6 games.

Slovan-Liberec vs FC Shakhter Karagandy Predictions: Slovan Liberec wins 2-1
