Unmotivated Roma against modest Viktoria Plzen

The Italians lost their game against Real Madrid (0:2), but managed to get into the next stage thanks to the victory of Viktoria Plzen (2:1) in Moscow.

Roma, despite the problems, were able to overcome the group stage because they had very weak rivals, such as Viktoria and CSKA.

The guests have 9 points, with two wins and two defeats from Real Madrid.

Viktoria’s win at Luzhniki surprised even in terms of the fact that it was a strong-willed victory and two goals were scored in the second half of the meeting.

The intrigue in this group is preserved only in the fight for the Europa League: in case of CSKA’s victory in Madrid, the Czechs will also need only to win.

Prediction: 1:1

Possible lineups:

Viktoria Plzen (4-2-3-1): Hruska; Reznik, Pernica, Hubnik, Kovarik; Hrosovsky, Prochazka; Petrzela, Cermak, Kopic; Chory.

Coach: Vrba.

Roma (4-2-3-1): Mirante; Santon, Fazio, Marcano, Kolarov; Nzonzi, Cristante; Under, Pastore, Kluivert; Schick.

Coach: Di Francesco.
