The final fixture of the Champions League Group G will see Viktoria Plzen and AS Roma facing-off at the Doosan Arena in a match that won’t change anything for the visitors but will impact hosts’ faith in Europe.
With a record of one win, one draw, and three defeats after the opening five Champions League rounds, Viktorka share the third-place with CSKA Moscow. The home team will have to dodge a failure against the Italian giants and hope CSKA won’t beat Real Madrid in Spain, as they look to qualify for the Europa League knockout stage. Before a tight 2-1 win over the Russian side last time out, the Czech Republic outfit has recorded three straight losses in Eurpe while played out one draw in the process. Additionally, Pavel Vrba’s players have failed to keep a clean sheet in all of their five CL outings, conceding a minimum of two goals per match four times in the run.
On the other hand, the Giallorossi have already captured their place in the round of 16, securing three wins while suffering two defeats after the opening five fixtures. La Lupa have hammered Plzen 5-0 at home in the first league and outscored CSKA Moscow in both matches. The only two losses Eusebio Di Francesco’s men suffered this campaign came against Real Madrid, and it was the only two games they’ve failed to hit the back of the net. However, the visitors come into this encounter following four consecutive matches without a victory, as they’ve played out two straight draws after losing two meetings in a row. What’s more, Di Francesco’s players have conceded at least one goal in their last eight competitive matches, which is their burning issue ahead of the midweek’s showdown.
