The Romans thus made it back-to-back league wins scoring as many as seven goals in the process. Can they keep such scintillating form going in the Champions League where they have an imperative to get the result after falling 3-0 to Real Madrid on the opening day at Santiago Bernabeu?

The Czech champions are the weakest team in the group on paper, but they showed strength in the first round clash against CSKA Moscow. Pavel Vrba’s men had a two-goal cushion, but were unlucky to concede the late stoppage-time leveller from the penalty-spot two weeks ago.

Roma vs Viktoria Plzen: Head-to-head

The two teams will take on each other for the fourth time on Tuesday evening.

They featured the same Europa League group two years ago when the Romans took four points from two clashes against Plzen.

The match at Olimpico saw a 4-1 victory for Roma.

The two teams met for the first time veer back in the summer of 2009 in a friendly which saw a 1-1 draw.

All three head to head games saw both teams scoring.

Roma vs Viktoria Plzen: Prediction

It has indeed been a roller-coaster campaign for Roma so far in the season. It’s hard to predict how their defensive line will react. Eusebio Di Francesco’s men were rather tough to break down lately having allowed just one goal in last two league games.

However, Roma shipped as many as nine goals in opening five games of the new Serie A season. They added three more in a convincing loss to the reigning champions Real Madrid at the start of the new UCL campaign.

Plzen also lack meticulousness at the back. They proved it by conceding two goals to CSKA Moscow on the opening day. Moreover, the Czechs struggled for success on the road recently. They will head into this off the back of two tough defeats to Slavia Prague (4-0) and Jablonec (3-0) in latest away fixtures in Czech Liga.

Backing a high-scoring affair is the best of betting options, but you can also go with Roma to win by two or more goals at 1.95 odds.
