Viktoria Plzen vs Roma
UEFA – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 12 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:55 UK
Venue: Doosan Arena (Plzen).
Wednesday’s action in the 6th round of the Champions League group stage is going to be opened with a clash between Viktoria Plzen and Roma.
The hosts are fighting for the 3rd spot and the place in Europa League after the winter break in European cups. Although it didn’t seem likely, Viktoria Plzen celebrated a valuable 2-1 victory in Moscow against CSKA. Pavel Vrba’s side conceded a lot of goals, three per match in average, and they’ve snatched just a point at home ground so far. However, they are enjoying a streak of three wins in a row in all competitions and they are hoping of another good display.
On the other hand, Roma are not too confident lately as they failed to celebrate in the last four occasions. They had a 2-0 lead away to Cagliari in the latest round in Serie A, but they managed to spill two points by conceding twice in the last five minutes of the match. Edin Dzeko and the lads have already secured their place in the eight-finals and the second place in the group.
Viktoria Plzen vs Roma: Head-to-head
These two sides faced each other four times so far and in their latest encounter earlier this season, Roma booked a confident 5-0 victory at Stadio Olimpico. Interestingly, Roma won both their home matches, while two games played at Doosan Arena ended with a draw. Just in the latest occasion, one of the sides failed to score.
Viktoria Plzen vs Roma: Prediction
This match is much more important for the hosts and they will do everything to get at least a point. Roma have never managed to celebrate in Plzen and we believe both sides would be satisfied with another draw.
Viktoria Plzen allowed too many goals so far in the competition, while Roma have been involved in a lot of high scoring matches. We are going to follow the tradition of their clashes in Czech Republic and both sides should be able to score in this one as well.
