After finishing the regular season, teams in the Slovakian top league will continue with the play-off this weekend. Slovan Brastislava are leading with 10 points ahead of Zilina and will play home against MFK Ruzumberok on their first game. In our Slovakian Super League betting odds we show you the favorites for all six games.
12 teams are competing in the first division of the Slovakian football league, playing 22 rounds in the regular season. After teams are divided into two groups, the top 6 teams play in the championship, while the bottom 6 play in the relegation group. Normally there would be 10 more rounds to decide the champion and the relegated teams, but this year teams will play only 5 more rounds. Defending champion, Slovan Bratislava are the favorites to win again, while there might be a bigger fight to avoid relegation between the bottom three teams.
Slovakian Super League betting odds favor top 3 teams to win at home
Online sportsbooks in Slovakia are giving the small odds of 1.28 at Bet365 Sportsbook for Slovan Bratislava’s victory over 6th-place MFK Ruzomberok. Slovan are the defending champion and the most successful team in Slovakia with 13 titles. The club also achieved a great result back in 1969 when it won the Cup Winner’s Cup defeating FC Barcelona in the final. If they win this season again, they will qualify for the Champions League first qualifying round.
At the moment MSK Zilina are behind them in 2nd place. They will host Spartak Trnava on Sunday, with the odds of 1.70 at Bet365 Sportsbook to win the game. The hosts also belong to the most successful teams with their 7 titles. Last time they won the league in the 2016/17 season, but it seems unlikely they can catch Slovan in the next five rounds. But if they can keep this place, it would mean qualification for the Europa League after a three-year break. DAC Dunajska Streda are in 3rd place and will play against Zemplin Michalovce. DAC are the favorites to win at home according to the Slovakian Super League betting odds.
Important games at the bottom
FK Pohronie are currently in the last place but only 3 points away from safety. But they don’t have an easy start as they will visit the home of AS Trencin in their first game. Online gambling sites in Slovakia are only giving the odds of 5.25 at Bet365 Sportsbook for their win, and even a draw has the odds of 3.60. The team has its first season in the top division but seems like it’s too hard for them. Their only hope that this season they won’t be automatically relegated even if they finish in last place. The team will play against the second division’s champion in a play-off. The winner of the duel will play in the Super League next season.
Another team, which is in danger of this play-off is FC Nitra, who is in 11th place at the moment. They will also start with an away game against 8th-placed FC Vion Zlate Moravce. Nitra have a slightly better chance to get something from this game, with the odds of 3.10 for a victory. In the 6th game FK Senica will host Fk Sered. Here also the home team is the favorite to get the three points.
