Slavia Prague joins Viktoria Plzeň in next round of Europa League

Prague, Czech Republic – Slavia Prague will join Viktoria Plzeň in the next round of the Europa League after a stunning 2-0 victory over Zenit Saint Petersburg, who were already qualified.

After Viktoria Plzeň qualified by finishing third of its Champions League group, it is the first time since 2013 that two Czech teams have qualified for the round of 32 of the Europa League. The Czech champions reached the round of 16 last year before losing to Sporting Portugal in extra-time.

The two Czech sides are now the only teams left representing Central Europe in European competitions as Jablonec could not save its skin despite its surprising first victory of the competition against Dynamo Kyiv in Ukraine.

They will know their respective opponents on Monday and could be drawn against the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Valencia, which should bring exciting games the Doosan Arena and Sinobo Stadium next year. Both legs will take place on 14 and 21 February.

Slavia Prague are owned by Chinese conglomerate CEFC China Energy.
