Match preview

Arguably, the tie of the Europa Conference League third qualifying round kicks off in the Czech capital.

In recent seasons, Slavia Praha have massively punched above their weight, reaching the Europa League quarter-finals in 2019 and 2021.

Then, again last season, the Red and Whites reached the last eight of this competition too, a remarkable four-year period.

However, having failed to retain their Czech title, Jindřich Trpišovský's team face three do-or-die qualifiers just to get back into the group stages.

Well, Slavia Prague certainly weren’t feeling the pressure in the previous round, hammering St Joseph’s 11-0 on aggregate.

Last Thursday’s 7-0 victory securing, unsurprisingly, the club’s biggest-ever European victory.

This though will be a far greater challenge.

Panathinaikos meanwhile are back in European competition for the first time in five seasons.

The Greens have qualified twice since then, but have been banned by the UEFA Club Financial Control Body due to overdue payables

The Greek giants were European Cup runners-up in 1971, qualifying for 12 Champions League and seven Europa League group stages in modern times.

However, the most recent of those was in 2016, so Ivan Jovanović's team would love to end that exile.

However, Panathinaikos have been handed a very tough draw, just looking to leave Fortuna Arena with this tie still in the balance.
