Plzen take on the visitors Sporting at “Doosan Arena” in the second-leg game of the 1/8 final stage of the UEFA Europa League. The match will be played in Plzen on Thursday, March 15th.
Plzen have no decent opponents in Czech Republic, thus, is the club is taking a confident lead in the 1. Liga table. “Viktorka” also managed to win Group G of the UEFA Europa League which they shared with FCSB, Lugano and H. Beer Sheva, having gained 12 points in six rounds played. The side’s attack demonstrated good football resulted in 13 scored goals while its defense had some problems, having conceded eight goals. In the recent fights conducted at the home field Plzen have earned 2:2 draw against Liberec, lost 0:1 to Jihlava and beat Partizan 2:0.

As for Sporting, each season the club claims for top position in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, however, the side is unlikely to win the trophy this year. “Leoes” have left the UEFA Champions League as they sit only on the third place in Group D where they had met with Juventus, Barcelona and Olympiakos Piraeus. The side’s offense showed solid performance, having scored eight goals while its defense has let down with nine goals conceded. In the previous tackles conducted on the road Sporting have failed against FC Porto 1:2, upset Tondela 2:1 and knocked out FC Astana from the UEFA Europa League, having celebrated 3:1 victory.
The first-leg encounter was finished in 0:2 defeat of Plzen. The level of “Leoes” is of course higher, therefore, “Viktorka” is most likely to leave the tournament after the forthcoming clash, still, I expect Plzen to pick up some points in front of their supporters.
Prediction for the match: Plzen to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
