Reason For Viktoria Plzen vs FCSB Betting Tips:
FCSB may have been backed off marginally on match-day four, as they drew 1-1 away from home against Hapoel, however the Romanian side still have a healthy advantage at the summit of Group G. A point in this fixture would guarantee that Nicolae Dică’s men experience to the following phase as group winners, however, considering how they’ve dominated the group up until this point, the guests may very well fancy their chances of racking up another noteworthy win. After all, they beat Plzen by three goals to nil on match-day one.
As things stand, Plzen are experiencing, yet their fate is far less secured than FCSB’s. Plzen are just two points ahead of Hapoel, and only three before Lugano. On the off chance that the Czech’s lose here and both of those sides end up as the winner in Switzerland, at that point their advantage will have disappeared ahead of the final round of games.
Whoever wins this fixture, goals are probably going to feature, and in no small number. FCSB’s attacking credentials have already been demonstrated, while Plzen haven’t been short on the goal-front either. In fact, as things stand, the hosts are right now Group G’s best scorers, in spite of trailing FCSB by four points. The ball hit the net on three occasions in the switch fixture, and it is ‘More than 2.5 Goals’ that gets approval here.
Since losing 3-0 away to FCSB on match-day one, Plzen have started thinking responsibly unpalatably, scoring nine goals in their last three matches. Considering that FCSB, as great as they’ve been, have looked shaky on occasion, Plzen really should fancy their chances of doing some damage here. In any case, since they do really need to go in search of a win, the guests aren’t probably going to be without circumstances, especially on the counter. What’s more, Pavel Vrba’s men are yet to keep a clean sheet in this group, and they’ve surrendered a rather embarrassing total of eight goals. Obviously, ‘More than 2.5 Goals’ has landed in all four of their matches in Group G.
What with the hosts expecting to approach, FCSB can afford to take a marginally more cautious approach, however, they are as yet anticipated that would attack themselves, especially on the break. After all, the Romanians have flourished in the final third amid this campaign, and aren’t probably going to back things off excessively at this stage. In spite of the fact that their guarded record on the road is a slight stress, after indenting three times in the turn around fixture, FCSB may very well have what it takes to outscore the hosts. At the costs, ‘FCSB to Win and BTTS’ stands out as a secondary wager.
These two teams have met on three past occasions, two of which have seen FCSB dominated the competition. Plzen have never beaten their Romanian rivals. At the point when the pair met in the switch fixture, FCSB won by three goals to nil.
