Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Plzen play host to Sheriff Tirapol at their Doosan Arena in the Champions League third qualifying round, return leg. Plzen aim to defend their one-goal lead on home soil, but we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. Defender Lukas Hejda is back to the starting line-up after missing the league game against Pardubice (2-1) through suspension.
Since head coach Michal Bilek can count on key players for the return leg, home win should definitely be considered. Sheriff chiefs, on the other hand, were forced to sell a couple of first-team regulars in the summer transfer window, and as a result, they are on the verge of suffering elimination in the Champions League third qualifying round. Since Plzen are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the Moldovan champions are going to return home empty-handed.
