Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
There will be fireworks when Sparta Prague and Viking face each other at Generali Ceska pojistovna Arena in the first leg of the Conference League second qualifying round. Sparta Prague were producing fine displays in pre-season, with the team beating all Dukla Prague, Opava, and Rijeka, while losing to Wolfsberger, but Viking should not be written off just yet as they are in middle of the season. A man to watch in the home team will be Czech rising star Tomas Cvancara, who impressed in the 2021/2022 domestic campaign.
The Dark Blues, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Lillestrom and Kristiansund. However, beating Sparta in Prague is easier said than done, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on draw. Zlatko Tripic is back from a domestic ban, while all Auklend, Berisha, Hagen, and Stensness remain in the recovery room.
