Victory for Viktoria Plzen
Plzen are quite a strong team when it comes to home matches. They were able to get wins over other Conference League opponents like Dinamo Brest and The New Saints in the previous rounds. CSKA Sofia, meanwhile, are not great on their travels and they could only muster a draw with Osijek in the recent match. Furthermore, CSKA Sofia are also likely to be low on fitness levels and match sharpness due to the lack of many games of late.
Total of more than 2.5 goals in the game
Viktoria Plzen have struggled with the concept of clean sheets at home. They have conceded at least a goal in the four home matches this season. This will be good news for the visitors, who are not the best when it comes to scoring away goals. The stats fit perfectly for experiencing a high-scoring match at the Doosan Arena.
Both teams to at least once – yes
This game is likely to witness goals from the two opponents with relative ease. Viktoria Plzen have struggled for clean sheets and they were only able to break this barren run with the narrow 1-0 win over Slovan Liberec during the weekend.
