Partizan and Viktoria Plzeň meet at Stadion Partizana, in a match for this phase of the UEFA Europa League (16th Finals). These two teams have never faced each other before, so this will be their first direct confrontation. In this match the home factor may be decisive, since Partizan presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor.
The home team got access to this phase of the UEFA Europa League (16th Finals) after the 2nd place won in Group B, with a total of 8 points. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a home victory over Teplice by (2-0). Partizan won 2, drew 1 and lost 1 of their last 4 home matches for the UEFA Europa League. Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 6 of the last 8 matches for this competition.
Partizan Belgrade enters the field for its third match this year, which marks its first official game in 2018, as the two matches he played until then were friendly. In the last of them, the team achieved a victory against Teplice, which left the club a little less pressured, as it marked the end of a fast that lasted five games. Despite the recent undesirable results, the team has been doing a good season, as it occupies the vice-leadership of the Serbian championship. In the Europa League, the team qualified in the second position of Group B, having suffered more goals than those scored, contrasting with the performance shown in the national championship, which has the best attack. The 4-4-2 should be the tactical scheme used in this duel, with highlight for Jevtović in midfield.
The visiting team reaches this stage of the UEFA Europa League (16th Finals) after having finished the group stage in the 1st position of Group G, with 12 points won. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 27 goals scored and 16 conceded; against 12 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 42 goals scored and 16 conceded. The team comes to this match after a home victory with Guizhou Zhicheng by (2-1). In the last 4 UEFA Champions League matches they played against Viktoria Plzeň, they have won 1, tied 1 and lost 2. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 6 of the last 8 matches for this competition.
Viktoria Plzen, as well as his opponent, makes his first official exhibition in this year in 2018, since the nine matches played so far were friendly preparation, of which he won six, tied one and lost two. As the results of these games show, the team has been making a good season, so much so that it leads the Czech Championship, with fourteen points ahead of the classified one, and in the Europa League managed to qualify in the leadership of Group G, having shown a good offensive power. As it showed in the continental tournament, the offensive sector has also stood out in the national championship, being the best of the competition, with an average of 2.12 goals scored per game. The coach is likely to organize the team in 4-2-3-1, with Kopic standing out in midfield.
