Fenerbahce are hosting Plzen in their stadium where no fans will be allowed as they are banned to watch this match by the decision of UEFA. Fenerbahce dominated the first leg in Check Republic. They managed to perform a tactic of blocking all the counter attack chances of their opponent. They waited patiently and some how hit the nets and managed to record a 0-1 result of victory. For sure this is a good advantage for them before playing the final match at home field. Despite the Turkish media, Aykut Kocaman head coach of Fenerbahce is still taking this match serious and he is sure that they are still not qualified. I am sure he motivated his players accordingly. They are aware that Plzen are a very good counter attack team and they can perform even better when they are on away. Therefore I expect an other boring match which Fenerbahce are going to wait patiently by passing the ball to each other and find a way to hit the nets when they get the chance. Fenerbahce side: No fans are allowed to watch the match. Important midfielder Raul Meireles is suspended. Due to the regulations important midfielder Emre Belozoglu can not play. Important forward Webo has a very small chance of playing. The absent list of Fenerbahce is telling me that they will be weak in offense line and will create less goal organizations. Besides the empty seats will be the factor of not being pushed for goal or extra goals. Striker Sow will be playing with striker Semih as Webo who is on top of his form has a very small chance of being in the squad. And this is an important factor that will decrease the goal chances of Fenerbahce.
Except one single mistake of goal keeper Volkan, Plzen could not create any goal chance in the first leg of the round. However they have the quality of playing a total football. They are very good in counter attacks and can punish a mistake without mercy. Even the players and head coach of Fenerbahce are aware of this.
There are some factors that favor a result of under 2.5, however in such matches like these there may be goals especially in the last 15 minutes as both teams may have tend to take all risks. IMO Fenerbahce will want to conserve the result in the beginning at least. It is a very big disadvantage that such offensive players like Emre, Meireles and Webo are absent. And in their absentee, Mehmet Topal and Selcuk Sahin can only contribute with long distance shots in goal ways. Well It is a very big possibility that this match will end with draw either first half or full time. May be both. You can make your own bet according to the information written here.
