FC Viktoria Plzen 8/15 to win against Qarabag FK in tonight’s Champions League qualifier
Competition: Champions League
Market: Plzen to win against Qarabag
Odds: 8/15 @ William Hill
FC Viktoria Plzen welcome Qarabag FK to the Doosan Arena in the first leg of the third round of tonight’s Champions League qualifier, and are big favourites to come out on top to put one foot in the playoffs.
Plzen booked their place in the Champions League qualifiers after winning the Czech title last season, and have a formidable home record that could spell disaster for minnows Qarabag. The hosts lost just once at the Doosan Arena in the league and boast a much superior record in European competitions.
Azerbaijan minnows Qarabag are underdogs ahead of tonight’s meeting, but will put up a fight given how easily they stormed to the domestic title last season. Their away form was good too, winning 61% of their away games, but they haven’t played Champions League in the modern day and the gulf in class this evening could be telling.
Vikoria Plzen made the group stages of the Europa League last season and reached the last-16 only two years ago. Qarabag, by comparison, have fallen short in the qualifiers time after time, while tonight’s clash being their first Champions League preliminary in the modern day.
As a result, William Hill are giving odds of 8/15 for the experienced Viktoria Plzen to come out on top on home soil.
