Czech champions Viktoria Plzen welcome Inter Milan to the Doosan Arena for the second round of fixtures in Champions League Group C.

Both sides come into this contest having lost their opening match in the section - Plzen falling to a 5:1 loss away to Barcelona while Inter slipped to a 2:0 home reversal against Bayern Munich.

In thIS so-called "Group of Death", both sides will be acutely aware of the need to pick up a victory here if either side is to entertain any prospect of qualifying for the next phase.

Viktoria Plzen vs Inter Betting Tips: Inter to win and BTTS

Inter arrives in the Czech Republic boosted by a late win against Torino on Saturday evening, and they will be expected to return to Milan with their first win in the group, with the visitors priced up as odds-on favourites to claim the points.

Of course, Inter doesn´t have a great record in this competition in recent years however they have lost just 2 of their last 8 away UCL matches, with both losses coming against current champions Real Madrid. 

Inter claimed a 3:1 win against Slavia Prague in their last visit to the Czech Republic on UCL duty back in 2019, and a repeat victory will be demanded by a side that has been eliminated in the group section in 3 of the last 4campaigns. 

Goal chasers may also fancy the chances of BTTS here with Inter struggling badly for away clean sheets. Indeed, the visitors have conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 8 matches on the road, with 14 goals conceded during that period. With Plzen scoring in the Camp Nou and now in front of their own fans, Inter´s ropey defence, which has also managed just 2 clean sheets in their last 13 away UCL matches since 2018, could find themselves under some pressure.

Indeed, with just 7 wins from their last 25 fixtures in this competition since 2018, Inter must find a greater level of performance if they are to have any chance of recovering from that opening day defeat against Bayern with a Barcelona double-header on their horizon in the coming weeks.

Ultimately, while we expect Inter to get the win they need, it is worth noting that Plzen are unbeaten in two previous home CL fixtures against Italian opposition, having held Milan to a 2:2 draw in 2011 before beating Roma 2:1 in 2018.

Still, having won 3 of their last 5 on the road in this competition and having picked up a morale-boosting win at the weekend, we expect Inter´s quality to eventually overcome a stubborn host who are unlikely to make this any kind of easy night´s work for Simone Inzaghi´s side.

Tomáš Chorý scored twice in the weekend win at Sigma Olumuc, and the 27-year-old is again expected to lead the line in a 4-5-1 formation. Jan Sykora will provide creativity from the attacking midfield position. 

Petr Pejsa is a long-term absentee due to a serious knee injury, but the visitors have no other injury concerns.
