I think Spartak gets through, they got the best draw out of all 4 Slovak teams. Spartak used to struggle in Europe but this time I´m confident they make it past 2nd preliminary. 85-15
No idea about the rest. I hope Slovan will make it too, but it will be difficult. Videoton invested a lot into their team and have a lot of interesting players in their roster. 50-50
As for Zilina, they seems to get lucky draw but thats just first impression. Israeli champ is no brand name in Europe but each israeli champ has it´s quality and this time it will be not different. 40-60
Senica won a friendly at MTK few days ago (2-3) but it´s hardly indicative as it was just a meaningless friendly of experimental squads. Have seen both teams to play last season, MTK walked through hungarian NB2 and made it to Hungarian Cup finals and left a good impression. They are good team, with solid transition game, with a good passing, trying to keep it flat, and with clinical finishing. They have a lot of experienced players and coach who managed hungarian biggest guns, incl.their NT. Despite MTK playing in NB2 only last season, I wouldnt be shocked to see them challenging for NB1 title this season. 50-50
