Viktoria Plzen vs Roma betting tips


Viktoria Plzen will be hoping that avoiding defeat to already-qualified Roma will be enough to clinch third place in Champions League Group G.

The Czech club are vying with CSKA Moscow for a place in the Europa League knockout phase, with Roma certain to finish second behind reigning champions Real Madrid.

CSKA, with whom Plzen are level on points, travel to the Bernabeu Stadium for their final match in this pool. Although Real Madrid have nothing to play for, they are red-hot favourites to win – and if they do, Plzen would only need to draw with Roma to end up third.

Although the Czech league champions were thrashed 5-0 on their own pitch by Real Madrid, their European home record had previously been strong dating back to August 2017.

Plzen had won six straight games before drawing 2-2 with CSKA on match-day one, although it should be added that those victories were all in the Europa League on their way to last season’s round-of-16.

Nevertheless, this will not be easy for Roma, especially if they are not 100% at it with their finishing position in the group having already been determined.

The bookmakers have priced this up as a tight contest and we are going for a draw which may well ensure that Plzen still have European football to look forward to after Christmas.
