Inter Milan and Viktoria Plzen face off on Wednesday in a UEFA Champions League Group C showdown at San Siro.
When these two teams faced off in September, it was Inter Milan that secured the 2-0 victory. Inter really dominated, finishing with 72 percent of the possession and eight shots on target. For Viktora Plzen, they only had 28 percent of possession and one shot on target.
Inter Milan currently sits in second place in the group, having picked up seven points so far. Inter’s last Champion League game was against Barcelona, and that game ended in a 3-3 draw. It was a back-and-forth game, but a goal given up in the 92nd minute led to them only picking up one point instead of three. On Saturday, Inter Milan faced off against Fiorentina, and they secured a 4-3 victory. They only had 41 percent of the possession, but they out shot their opponent 7-4. Marcelo Brozovic is dealing with a thigh injury and won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Viktoria Plzen, who sits in 4th place in the group, having picked up zero points. Their last Champions League game was against Bayern, and they were defeated 4-2. They gave up four goals in the first 35 minutes. On Saturday they faced off against Banik and the game ended in a 3-1 victory. Fortune Bassey hasn’t been featured a ton this season, but he could make the starting lineup in this game. Lukas Hejda should be the captain in this game.
This Viktoria Plzen team is good in the Czech First League, but they just can’t really compete at this level. The defense isn’t good enough, and in the last game they gave up two goals to Inter Milan. In this game, I expect Inter Milan to score three or four goals, and Viktoria Plzen’s offense is going to have no answer. Back Inter Milan -1.5 to cash.
