Who will win the 2020/21 FORTUNA Liga title?

The 2020/21 Czech First League, known as the Fortuna Liga, will be the 28th season of the Czech Republic's top-tier football for professional clubs since its establishment in 1993. Slavia Prague are the defending champions, having won their third title in the last four years. The season is anticipated to start on the penultimate weekend of August 2020 and is about to finish in May 2021. It will include a winter break in January and February 2021.

For the first time in the history of Czech football, 18 teams will participate in the top league. All 16 teams from the previous season maintained its spot due to the abolishment of the relegation phase of the 2019/20 season and as a result none of the teams were relegated. The Czech League Football Association decided that two leading teams from 2019/20 Czech Second League shall be promoted, namely the victorious FK Pardubice, and the second-place Zbrojovka Brno. Each of the 18 teams will play in the round-robin format home and away. The bottom three teams will be relegated directly to the second league at the end of the season.

Based on the data from previous seasons, it looks like the trio of FC Viktoria Plzeň, AC Sparta Prague, and SK Slavia Prague will once again contend for the title, with the latter team having the upper hand.

FC Viktoria Plzeň

The runner-up of the previous season rose under coach Adrián Guľa into one of the best-attacking teams in Fortuna Liga. At the beginning of Viktoria Plzeň's summer training, the West Bohemian team welcomed two midfielders and a new striker Jan Chramosta as a potential substitute for another forward Jean-David Beauguel who expressed a wish to leave the team.

AC Sparta Prague

Sparta, the third-best team of the Fortuna Liga, is going to have another difficult season. Although it got rid of the burden of highly-paid players (Mandjeck, Kaya, Stramacconi, Ben Chaim, Frýdek), it still failed to invest enough money during the transition period to be able to retain key players of the team. Neither Guélor Kanga nor Dávid Hancko has a signed contract for the 2020/21 season. D. Hancko will eventually manage to extend his stay but especially in the case of G. Kanga, it is a shame that the club failed to keep the best player in the league and conditioned his contract with performance.

SK Slavia Prague

In contrast, the reigning champions led by coach Trpišovský's did not hesitate in the summer break and immediately added new players to the team. The quartet Karafiát, Kuchta, Beran, and Malinský were brought from FC Slovan Liberec, the 5th best team of the previous season. Besides, Slavia does not count any losses in the form of departures, so the team should be able to continue their domination mainly thanks to coach Trpišovský and an excellently coordinated defence.
