Viktoria Plzen vs Sparta Prague Betting Tips : BTTS

Left trailing in the dust by Prague giants Slavia and Sparta in the title race this campaign, Viktoria Plzen will seek solace in capturing the MOL Cup, and they couldn't ask for a better opportunity than to do so in front of their own faithful, as this year's final takes place at their Doosan Arena.

Nestled at third place in the Championship Group, trailing Slavia Prague by 13 points but boasting a comfortable 22-point lead over Mlada Boleslav in fourth, the Brewers have already secured their spot in next season's UEFA Europa League, prompting them to set their sights on cup glory, seeking to lift the trophy for the first time since 2010.

In their own den, Miroslav Koubek's troops recently put in some outstanding performances, where, among other things, they blew away Sparta Prague in a 4-0 hammering on matchday 24 of the regular season in the Fortuna Liga, while their free-scoring approach eased their path to the fourth MOL Cup final appearance after they smashed Zlin 3-0 in the semis.

Thanks to an inspired Jan Kuchta with four goals, including a first-half hat-trick, Sparta Prague executed a fantastic five-star display in their Saturday away match against Mlada Boleslav, allowing them to overcome arch-rivals Slavia Prague in a tense title race with one round remaining, thus becoming champions of their country for a record 14th time.

Having successfully defended their Fortuna Liga crown, Brian Priske and his team will now aim to complete the season with a domestic double, something they couldn't achieve last term after being defeated 0-2 by Slavia in the final, and winning this year's MOL Cup could make them the most decorated team, as they currently share seven trophies with their city rivals.

Despite facing a final showdown with their opponent enjoying massive home support, it won't deter their determination to reach their set goal, as they have recently showcased exceptional firepower in front of the goal, netting at least three goals in four straight visits and building a six-game winning streak, which includes knocking out Opava in the MOL Cup semifinals.

It's truly challenging to predict the winner of this year's MOL Cup edition, as both finalists are in rich form and the outcome could go either way. Still, considering the incredible scoring ability of both sides, we anticipate an exciting and action-packed final showdown in which both nets should be breached at least once. Ultimately, the stronger squad and greater pedigree in this tournament could lead to glory for Sparta Prague.

Viktoria Plzen team news

Viktoria Plzen will not be able to call on Matej Valenta, Jan Sykora, Jan Kopic, as well as attacking duo Idjessi Metsoko and Rafia Durosinmi, as they are all out due to their injury problems.

During the weekend league clash with Ostrava, Vaclav Jemelka was replaced in the 37th minute due to an injury, so his participation in the MOL Cup final will be questionable.

Sparta Prague team news

Albanian striker Indrit Tuci has struggled with his health in recent weeks, but he appears to be on the mend after being seen on the bench during Saturday's visit to Mlad Boleslav.

Experienced midfielder David Pavelka has been injured for a long time, while he was recently joined in the recovery room by Kaan Kairinen, who broke his leg in the city derby against Slavia, due to which he is expected to be out for several months.
