Football – Europe – Champions League Betting Tips

The top two places in Group G have already been decided with Real Madrid booking top spot and Roma three points behind in second place, but there’s a battle for third spot and a Europa League berth between Viktoria Plzen and Roma who are both on 4 points apiece as the betting tips continue.

After a very disappointing campaign, Viktoria Plzen saved the best for last as they registered what could turn out to be a vital 2-1 win away at Russian club, CSKA Moscow, on match day 5 and they hold home advantage in this final match of Group G at their Doosan Aréna.

The hosts had earlier opened their account with a point against CSKA Moscow with a 2-2 draw at home, but this was then followed by three defeats on the trot to Roma and home and away losses to Real Madrid.

Plzen’s home form though in this competition is nothing to write home about as they’ve recorded just one win from their last 9 matches, a run that includes a rare win over CSKA Moscow, as well as three draws.

Onto Roma and the Italian visitors have already booked their place in the next stage of the Champions League as they sit in second place and hold a comfortable and unassailable 5 point margin over third placed Viktoria Plzen.

Defeats home and away against Group G leaders, Real Madrid, have book-ended a three-match winning streak during the middle of their campaign which saw Roma pick up wins against Viktoria Plzen as well as home and away wins over CSKA Moscow.

However, when looking at Roma’s results away from home in this competition in recent times, you’ll see that the visitors have won just once in their last seven matches which was a 2-1 win at CSKA Moscow and that ended a run of five defeats on the trot.

With neither team in particularly good form, a draw seems as likely a result as any other as Plzen just need to replicate CSKA Moscow’s result to progress to the Europa League.
