In the first match of Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round, Olympiakos will be hosted by Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday, July 23rd.
Viktoria Plzen :
Czech Republic representative Viktoria Plzen was directly involved in the Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round. The host who started the league adventure 2 weeks ago, managed to beat his opponents and collected 6 points at the end of 180 minutes and sat in the leadership seat. The team that lost the league championship in the last season and took the 2nd place, struggled in the Champions League Groups and took the 3rd place in this process. Viktoria Plzen, who will come across Olympiakos with European experience, wants to turn the advantage of the score in front of the fans.
Olympiakos in the new season of the first official exam Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round against Viktoria Plzen will give. The representative of Greece, who finished the second place in the season we left behind and struggled in the UEFA Europa League during this process, said goodbye to the European stage in the last 32 rounds. The guest team added reinforcements as of the transfer period, adding Rúben Semedo, José Sá, Svetozar Markovic and Bruno. Pedro Martins and his students who are going to give a difficult displacement exam want to turn the advantage of the first match and take the tour ticket in front of the fans.
I think that the parties will be cautious in this challenging first match where the party bet is difficult and that they will exhibit a more defensive football in order not to lose the advantage of the score.
