Banik Ostrava vs Viktoria Plzen
Czech Republic – First League
Date: Wednesday, 3 June 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Mestsky stadion.
Historically Ostrava is in no way capable of beating this upcoming opposition. They are on 2 match drawing streak which makes it 3 matches in the league without a win. A win at this stage will put them higher up in the table, possibly in the top three.
Plzen is one of the most successful teams in Czech football in recent times. They will be looking for yet another title this time around but they have to go past Slavia Prague. Currently, with a 6 match winning run going on, the opposition needs to come up with something special to beat them.
Banik Ostrava vs Viktoria Plzen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Plzen is unbeaten in the last 20 head to head matches on the trot.
- They have kept a clean sheet in 12 of those matches in both league and Cup.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of their recent 5 meetings.
- The last victory for Ostrava in this fixture came back in 2009.
- Plzen has an 8 match unbeaten run at this ground which includes 7 wins.
- They did not concede in 5 matches during that spell also.
Banik Ostrava vs Viktoria Plzen: Prediction
There is no doubt that it has the upper hand in this upcoming match. Plzen has not lost to this opposition in over a decade both home and away. Also, they need to keep winning to keep the pressure on toppers Slavia Prague. Also, they have done extremely well in away matches this season. So I am backing the visitors to win quite comfortably.
Ostrava was unable to score goals in their last 4 meetings against Plzen at this ground. Considering that the visitors are conceding less than a goal per game, I think the hosts will have a hard time scoring. There is a major difference in the number of goals scored by both these teams. Plzen has scored 17 more than the hosts while conceding 6 less. So I am going with only one team scoring on Wednesday.
