Viktoria Plzen vs Drita Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in Europa Conference League Qualification on Thursday, 27 July 2023.
Drita are totally playing out of their comfort zone here. The team from Kosovo might be the top dogs in their domestic league, but outside of that they are minnows – and especially so against their counterparts for the day – who are rich in European experience.
Meanwhile, Plzen are having high expectations about the upcoming encounter. They are possibly going to try and wrap up the tie in the first leg itself. It is true that they did not have a smooth ending to the previous campaign, and they would like to make amends for it.
These two teams are locking horns for the first time.
Drita have a single win in the past three months, and won just twice on the road in the past five months. It goes without saying that they have been on a poor streak of performances almost through the entirety of 2023 – and particularly so on the road.
On the other hand, Plzen secured a third-place finish the last season in the Czech league, and delivered consistent performances throughout. They also registered impressive results at home all through the season.
As these two teams lock horns with each other this Thursday, it is expected that hosts Viktoria Plzen will deliver a winning performance.
Drita have been in such worrying form, that they have a single win in the past three months. And to make matters worse, they managed to win just twice away from home in the previous five-month period.
On the other hand, hosts Plzen are titans of the much tougher Czech league. They secured a third-place finish the last season in the competition, and also delivered dominant defensive performances throughout.
They are eager to continue their impressive run this new season as well – and are confident that they can make the most of this first leg at their home. A -1.5 Asian Handicap on Viktoria Plzen is placed at 1.67 odd.
