The visitors saw off FC Prishtina and FK Zalgiris in the first and second round of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers and will aim to keep the juggernaut rolling.
Czech Republic reigning champions Slavia Prague kicked off their title defense in fine fashion as they claimed a 1-0 win over Fastav Zlin.
This was quickly followed by a 3-1 victory away to FK Teplice last Friday.
However, they failed to carry on this momentum in the Champions League qualifiers as they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Hungarian side Ferencvaros TC.
Defender Taras Kacharaba inadvertently put the ball through his own net to give Ferencvaros the lead in the 44th minute before Igor Kharatin doubled the lead from the penalty spot six minutes later.
Prior to the defeat, Jindřich Trpišovský’s men were on an impressive 13-match unbeaten streak, dating back to a 4-0 loss to Arsenal back in April.
Meanwhile, after opening the new campaign with a blistering run of four straight victories, Ferencvaros came crashing down to earth last Saturday as they were beaten 2-1 by Kisvarda FC in the Hungarian NB I.
However, they returned to winning ways four days later as they claimed a 2-0 victory over Slavia Prague to place one foot in round four of the Champions League qualifiers.
Peter Stoger’s side head into the second leg in superb form, picking up 16 wins and three draws from their last 20 outings across all competitions.
