Viking vs Sparta Prague
Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 28 July 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: SR-Bank Arena.
Viking are from the Norwegian top flight and they were one of the best teams there the previous season. They have been in good form lately and particularly so at home. Meanwhile, Sparta Prague have been on a mess on the road for quite some time now and they will have a mountain to climb this Thursday in order to keep their Conference League dreams alive.
Most of their recent fixtures on the road had finished in losses and during this stretch they had let in goals in huge numbers. They are also on a winless run at the moment in overall games, and their defense has been a cause for worry even in these matches.
Meanwhile, Viking have been finding the back of the net at a good rate lately and at home they have shown even more consistency in this regard.
While the first leg of this tie had finished in a 0-0 draw, it appears that the hosts of the day Viking will have the upper hand to make it to the next round of the Champions League playoffs.
