The extraordinary autumn of 2019

Slavia ended the autumn part of 2019/20 season with an impressive record of 17 wins and 3 draws and made the best opening 20 rounds in the history of Czech league.
Slavia played 20 games in the autumn part of 2019/20 season of Czech FORTUNA:LIGA seizing 90% of all possible points (17 wins, 3 draws, 0 losses). The red and whites scored 45 goals (2,25 per game) and conceded only 4 (i.e. 0,2 per game). These 4 conceded goals make a Czech record, the best opening 20 rounds so far had Viktoria Plzeň in 2017/18 with 9 conceded goals. Last club who had higher goal difference then Slavia (+41) after 20 rounds was Dukla Prague 28 years ago in 1961/62.

With 54 points in league table this makes the best opening 20 rounds in the history of the independent Czech league (Sparta in 2013/14 started also with 17 wins and 3 draws, but with only +37 goal difference). Thanks to this impressive record Slavia are now 16 points clear on top of the league.

100% Home Record

The red and whites made Sinobo Stadium their fortress. Slavia haven’t lost single game on their own ground since August 2018 making it 25 straight games unbeaten after their last game against České Budějovice (23 wins, 2 draws). In autumn 2019 Slavia won all 10 home games with an impressive score of 26-2.

16 different goal scorers

45 goals in 20 games are almost equally distributed among the players starting in domestic games. Overall 16 players scored, the only regular starter who failed to score in FORTUNA:LIGA was left-back Jan Bořil who, however, scored two important goals in Champions League against CFR Cluj (Play-off) and Barcelona (MD3).

Defensive midfielder Tomáš Souček is the best league striker with 8 goals, forward Milan Škoda and midfielder Josef Hušbauer scored both 5.

Ondřej Kolář kept 15 clean sheets in his 18 starts. Between 2nd round in Teplice and 13th round home against Příbram he hasn’t conceded in 8 straight games making second-longest serie in the history of Czech league (788 minutes). Kolář has now 10 more games in regular season to beat Petr Čech’s record of 17 clean sheets in one season from 2001/02.

Our goalkeeper has also impressive away record currently keeping clean sheet away for 668 minutes. Current record belongs to Kolář too, in 2018 he kept clean sheet in 7 away games for 756 minutes which means there is still 89 away minutes now to break this record.

Two more goalkeepers played one game each in FORTUNA:LIGA. 18-year old Jakub Markovič made his debut home against Bohemians and managed to keep the clean sheet (4-0), Přemysl Kovář played away to Opava (1-1).
