Plzen, Qarabag, 90 minutes away from the Champions League

After finishing their first leg with a draw, Viktoria Plzen and Qarabag FK is more than hungry for the Champions League. It was a goalless draw that leads both teams to be more eager to win the second leg. They are just an hour and a half away from entering the group stage of the Champions League.

Plzen will look to make use of their home advantage as they will host this match. This squad will look to complete a job well done at home by qualifying for the Champions League. However, it will not be easy for them as Qarabag wants to return to the Champions League. The club last made it to the Champions League in the 2017-18 season. During their last match, despite being goalless, Qarabag is the better team.

Plzen had an amazing qualifying round after they defeated HJK, 7-1, during the second round of the qualifiers. For the third round, they faced Sheriff Tiraspol where they also managed to beat for a 4-2 win. However, despite their impressive second and third round, they were not able to bring it in the playoffs. Although this club is not new to the Champions League, it has been a while since they last qualified. They qualified for the 2011-12 and 2013-14 season, and is now looking for their third appearance.

Jan Kliment is expected to deliver once more for the Plzen. For their last three home games, he managed to score a goal in each of those matches. Moreover, since Jhon Mosquera did not have a good game last match, he might be dropped on the bench. Petr Pejsa who has been out since September last year due to injury, will still not play in this match.

Qarabag, on their last game, failed to make the most out of their home advantage as they failed to find a breakthrough during that match. However, the draw during the first leg cannot bring down Qarabag as they are now ready to face a new battle. It will be a now or never for them as this is their only chance to qualify for the Champions League. They last qualified for the Champions League during the 2017-18 season.

Luck for Qarabag as they will face this death game with a healthy line-up, which may be the team’s edge against the opponent.
