Plzen vs Hradec Kralove by Jamesington

Playing for a place in the quarter finals of the Czech Cup are Viktoria Plzeň and relegation fodder Hradec Kralove. Frankly though, the opposition are not the main issue here - the pick is mainly due to Plzeň's excellent form, particularly at home where they are capable of beating anyone on their day.


Already 2-1 from the first leg Plzeň can win this game no problem and are likely to rest a couple of players, they did so in the first leg - with backup goalkeeper Petr Bolek playing in both cup matches thus far. This shouldn't cause any problem though as a Viktoria Plzeň side with a few 2nd choice players will likely still be good enough to play Hradec off the park.


Plzeň have won 8 of their last 9 matches, they have won their last 5 home games only conceding 1 goal and they made it to last season's cup final without conceding any goals at home so it is unlikely that their defence will face too stern a test against an opposition which has only managed to score 9 goals all season in the league (of which only 3 were scored away from home).


The home side have no European football to concentrate on this year having been knocked out of both CL and EL in the qualifying stages so a league and cup double is the goal. They are currently top of the league and will win this tie. The bet is VIKTORIA PLZEN -1 due to their supreme recent form, particularly at home - of Plzeň's last 10 home wins, 8 of them have been by more than 1 goal. The opposition today are bottom of the league and a class below Plzeň, the last time the club's met at the Doosen Arena it ended in a 4-0 rout, let's hope for the same again.
