Viktoria Plzen vs Dinamo Zagreb Match Preview
Another good match to look forward to for punters on Thursday evening that puts together a team coming down from the higher quality Champions League with an impressive group winner from the group stage of this competition. Dinamo Zagreb went through the group stage unbeaten, although this represents a much tougher task for them and they are going to have to be at their best to qualify for the next round.
Viktoria Plzen didn’t fare too badly in the Champions League, and put up some good performances in that competition. It was a step too high for them, and they should be more at home in this, where they are expected to at least get through a couple of rounds. The draw hasn’t been too kind though, they could have had things a little easier.
With home advantage in this leg, Viktoria Plzen simply have to attack Zagreb here. They performed with credit in the Champions League, and some of their form looks very good in comparison to the team they are facing. We don’t think there will be too much in this, but we are backing Viktoria Plzen to take a lead with them into the second leg. We are backing them to do so with Unibet who have them priced up at 7/5.
Plzen scored just seven goals in six games in the Champions League, while Zagreb conceded just three in their Europa League group. We don’t think we will see too many chances here either looking at the teams and a low scoring affair awaits us. We are backing under 2.5 goals in the game, priced up at 3/4 with Paddy Power.
