Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
High-flying Plzen will look to extend their winning run to seven games when they take on Tobol in the Conference League third qualifying round, first leg. The Czechs have been scoring goals for fun of late and we are positive that they will stick to their attack-oriented strategy. The likes of Havel, Pernica, Sykora, and Vydra continue to miss out with injuries, while midfielder Lukas Kalvach is only one yellow card away from suspension.
The Kazakhs, on the other hand, survived Derry City in the third qualifying round, but they will have a mountain to climb in Thursday’s encounter. As Plzen have already found their form, we predict that the visitors are going to emerge triumphant in the first leg. As for the home side, both Roman Asrankulov and Igor Jovanovic are pushing for a start after the duo came off the bench in a 1-1 draw with Aktobe at the weekend.
