Viktoria Plzen Prediction

Viktoria Plzen finished in third place in their Champions League Group G by edging out CSKA Moscow by virtue of their 2-1 win away at the Russian club in the penultimate round of matches in the group stage.

Plzen’s current form has been solid if not sparkling as they’ve lost just once in their last 15 matches in all competitions, although the draw has featured in four of their last five matches, with their last match ending in a 1-1 draw away at Mlada Boleslav in the Czech Liga upon their return from the winter break.

Plzen’s Champions League campaign saw them start off in slow fashion, losing three of their first four group matches with defeats to Roma and home and away to Real Madrid but a 2-2 draw with CSKA Moscow along with back-to-back wins against CSKA Moscow (away) and a home win over Roma saw the Czech Republic outfit squeeze through to the Europa League.


Key-Facts – Viktoria Plzen v Dinamo Zagreb

  • Viktoria Plzen have lost just 1 of their last 15 matches in all competitions
  • Viktoria Plzen have won their last 7 at home on the trot in the Europa League
  • Dinamo Zagreb have won just 2 of their last 8 away matches in the EL


Dinamo Zagreb Prediction

Dinamo Zagreb took Group D by storm during the group stages of the Europa League as they finished a convincing top of the pile by a six point margin ahead of runners-up Fenerbahce, and remained unbeaten in their six matches too.

The visitors posted two wins and a draw both home and away during the group campaign with the highlights on the road being wins gained at Belgian outfit Anderlecht and at Slovakian side Spartak Trnava in 2-0 and 2-1 victories respectively.

Dinamo Zagreb possess a good record overall in the Europa League as they’ve put together an 11-match sequence without defeat, but away from home may be a slight concern for the Croatian club as they’ve picked up just two away wins from their last eight away ties in the Europa League, which were the recent wins mentioned earlier.

In addition, Dinamo Zagreb have failed to score in five of their last eight away matches in this competition which could be an important factor as we look ahead to this first leg clash in the Czech Republic.

Betting Tips Verdict

Viktoria Plzen are an extremely hard team to beat on home turf, and considering Dinamo Zagreb’s not entirely convincing results away from home in recent times, I’ll back the hosts with the handicap here.
