Viktoria Plzen vs Olympiacos
Champions League Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 23 July 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Doosan Aréna (Plzeň).
The hosts are currently on a winning run of form and have welcomed the new domestic season with two wins out of two games.
The squad won by a 3-1 scoreline in their opening fixture at home against Sigma Olomouc, with three different players getting their names on the scoresheet. Away from home, they registered a convincing 2-1 victory against Liberec and will be coming into the clash on Tuesday on the back of that win.
The visiting side finished second in the table last season. However, they were the best-attacking side in the league, both at home and on the road, and amassed a total of seventy-one goals to their name in the process. The Greek outfit have also been faring well in their preseason friendlies and will certainly be eying the prospect of bagging an advantage to carry into the return leg.

Viktoria Plzen vs Olympiacos Prediction
The hosts are likely to edge it past the visitors in their maiden clash at the Doosan Arena on Tuesday.
The home team have netted five goals in their last two games while conceding not more than twice. Kopic found the back of the net in both of those matches and is sure to be an imminent threat in the attacking third.
However, the squad have failed to keep a clean sheet so far, which opens up the possibility for the side from Greece to walk away with a crucial away goal.
The latter have been showing potential in their warm-up games as well. We can certainly expect both the teams to get their names on the scoresheet in this one. However, with home advantage under their belt, the win is likely to swing in favor of the hosts at the end of the ninety minutes.
