The loss to Lugano did not affect Viktoria’s perfect run in the domestic league where they are 11 points clear at the top after winning each of the opening 12 fixtures.

Pavel Vrba can be thrilled with his team’s attacking displays as Plzen notched three goals in each of their back-to-back wins over Zbrojovka Brno and Karvina in Czech Liga.


The visitors have been struggling badly in their domestic league all up until the mentioned victory over the Czechs in Europa League.

The streak of five losses on the bounce in Super League was converted into three wins and a draw in last four games in all competitions (including the victory over Viktoria).

Viktoria Plzen vs Lugano: Head to head

The match played two weeks ago at Swissporarena was the first ever H2H meeting between the two likes.

Nothing suggested a five-goal thrilled when the sides entered the last third of the match with a goalless draw. However, the hosts bagged two quick goals which opened up the game completely with 3-2 as the final score at the end.

Viktoria Plzen vs Lugano: Prediction

Lugano have been struggling a lot to keep things quiet at the back lately and we just can’t see them stopping the red-hot attacking line of Plzen’s from bagging three or more here.

The hosts should not allow another slip-up in a super important fixture against the group’s underdogs.
