FCSB
VS
Viktoria-Plzen
FCSB hosts Plzen in the 3`rd qualifying round of the Champions League. The game promises to be tight but there a few things that favour the home side. Both teams finished second in the league last season and will hope they can improve on that. Other teams are taking dominance and though a deep run in the Champions League might cost them there is no better incentive to show a great game.

 

FCSB had to sell a couple of their important players like Boldrin and Hamroun but brought in quality players like Budescu and Morais from Astra and Larie from Cluj. The new coach Nicolae Dica has changed the system which isn`t working perfectly yet. FSCB had a decent preparation period and in the first two league matches took two tight wins against Voluntari and Timisoara. It isn`t perfect yet but they look better than Plzen.

 

Plzen parted ways with Hromada who went back to Sampdoria while the midfielder Chrien was sold to Benfica. In came midfielder Cermak from Sparta and attacker Reznicek from Brno and Kolar from Gazientepispor. They would have probably hoped to buy a few defensive players as the team has some big injury problems lately.They are missing threw injury: captain Roman Hubník(CB), regular goalkeeper Matus Kozacik, Václav Pilař(lm), Jan Kovařík(lm), disciplined Lukáš Hejda(CB) and probably RB Mateju.

 

The preparation period wasn`t great for Plzen either a s after wins over lower league teams they lost to Furth 1.5, Wolves 1:2, Watford 0:1. Their defensive problems have been exposed.

 

Plzen doesn`t have a good record in CL in the last few years and have only 2 wins in the last 12 matches. They struggle away from home and the last win was over Maccabi in 2015. Last year they lost to Ludogorets 2:0 while they had big luck to take a draw with Qarabag 1:1.

 

FCSB had big problems last year with Man.City and lost at home with 0:5. The round before however won over Sparta 2:0. Besides the loss to City FCSB lost only 1 of their 8 home matches previously.

 

FCSB is in better rhytm and has decent results. Plzen with a host of problems because of injuries and not so good record in CL Q. FCSB must be a favorite in this match.
