Plzen vs Real Madrid | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Real Madrid needs to start winning, and they need to do it fast. The departure of Lopetegui was something expected, and the Los Blancos are now under coach Solari. Plzen gave them a hard time in Madrid, which is why this team need to take the adventure in the Czech Republic seriously.
Real is in the second place of the Group G, with the same number of points as Roma, but with a worse goal difference. In the previous round of the La Liga, they defeated Valladolid with 2:0. Plzen sits in the last place with only one point, earned against CSKA Moscow, and they recorded a minimal win in the latest encounter in the domestic championship, versus Ostrava, 0:1.
The Czech champions didn’t lose in the regular 90 minutes at home since 31st of March this year. Now, no matter the quality of the 1. Liga that needs to be respected. Though, they did get eliminated from the cup, a week ago, after the match with Ostrava ended 2:2 in the regular time. However, they instantly bounced back and got even with the same opponent. That game in Ostrava which they won, ended a five-game streak in which we saw over 2.5 goals, and both teams to score, so have that in mind, that the Czech’s like to play offensive, and we saw that two weeks ago at Santiago Bernabeu. They weren’t frightened to try to attack a much stronger rival, and they did score eventually.
Santiago Solari, won his first two matches as coach, and he already wrote history. After 61 years, he became the first coach who recorded two wins in his first two games since the appointment. After defeating Melilla 0:4 in Copa del Rey, they were victorious against Valladolid as mentioned above. That game was the first one after four straight in which we haven’t seen 2.5 goals. When looking at the overall condition of Real Madrid away from home, win against Melilla, snapped a four-game losing streak, in which the Madridians scored only one goal. For now, the reigning European champion has just two wins since the season started.

The hosts will be without their best players in this event. Strong forward Michael Krmencik is out because of a knee injury, Jan Kovarik and Daniel Kolar are also out, and that will be a huge handicap for the midfield of this assembly. The situation is not bright with the visitors. Dani Carvajal and Rafael Varane are out, but the biggest blow is the absence of Real’s best player in recent times, Marcelo, who became the leader of the squad. Mariano Diaz is questionable.
The first match of these clubs had been seen two weeks earlier, and Real won that one with 2:1. Although, we need to add that they did struggle at the end when they defended and kept the lead.

Plzen vs Real Madrid | Top Betting Tip: Real Madrid (0-3)
Things are different now with Real. Solari’s arrival is a new chapter in their history, and the players realized that, and they started to play once again. Though the opponents beaten before this one, were not as classy as someone would have wanted, the improvement is noticeable. Also, the Argentinian will not experiment anything, but instead he will send the best 11 on the field, including Benzema, Bale, etc. Plzen has three vital players out for this match, and this club is not that wealthy to have proper replacements for them. This handicap is undoubtedly going to be felt, and that is why we picked Real to win and to do it confidently. Bet on the Madridians to win by 2 or 3 goal margin, and also try with them scoring two or more goals in the first halftime. The overall efficiency should follow this pattern. In the end, Plzen – Real Madrid 0:3.
