Brno who lost promotion by just 1 point to Jihlava ended up 3rd in the Czech FNL league. They did perform well in the last 5 games of last season winning all 5 but was not enough to get them into 1.Liga. In the promotion playoff, they drew with Marila 3-3 at home and 0-0 away which was enough for Marila to remain in top league. Looking at Brno's form and wins, they do have the ability to compete with some of the average clubs in 1.Liga. On the other hand, Vlasim finished 12th in the FNL table last season. Brno is expected to compete for promotion again this season and they are expected to beat bottom half Vlasim i this game.
