Real Madrid vs Plzen | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The reigning champions of this competition and the most successful club in history is experiencing hard times. Real didn’t win in five straight games, and such a horror scenario hasn’t been seen at Santiago Bernabeu for a long time. Plzen is the team whose quality is probably the lowest in the whole Champions League.
Julen Lopetegui and his status are still not clear. We don’t know is he going to stay for this match or not. After a defeat at home to Levante, 1:2, the former coach of the Spanish national team was crucified by the media and the angry fans. Plzen managed to avoid a defeat on the road in the domestic championship this Saturday against Bohemians, 2:2.
Now listen to this. Real has one draw and four losses in the previous five games. To make it even worse, they scored only once during that period, and it was Marcelo who netted in the 72nd minute of the match against Levante. Mariano Diaz, Asensio, Isco, Lucas, Benzema etc, all of them can’t be recognized. Real’s players are looking as if they forgot how to score. One fun fact for all of you. This generation has set a new negative record when it comes to efficiency. They couldn’t score for 721 minutes. Lopetegui is mixing his lineups a lot, and that might be the reason for this humiliating streak of the Los Blancos. Also, we need to add that he often makes some strange moves, and leaves out Bale or Benzema as he did against Levante.
The Czech Republic champion got trashed in Rome a couple of weeks ago when Roma demolished them with 5:0. Pretty much this is their strength away from home. In the latest 10 continental road trips, this team won only one, while four ended with a draw and lost five. When looking at their overall record on the road, things haven’t been much different lately. They had three straight defeats in which they could score, and after that, one win in the domestic cup and the draw mentioned above last weekend. Just to say, those three defeats came with a goal difference of 0:12,

The biggest enigma is Lopetegui. Is he going to stay in charge or not? There are some rumors that Real already started negotiating with Antonio Conte who is currently without a job. As for the injured or suspended players, the only one who is ineligible for this event amount the Los Blancos is Carvajal. Kopic will not play for Plzen in this one because of an injury.
The Spanish and the Czech club never met until now.
Odds and Predictions
We do not have to tell you who is the favorite here. Anyone knows that, an event the ones who are not into football that much. If you stake 100 units on Real’s win, you will have a clear profit of 8. A draw is at 10, while Plzen’s win is 26.
Real Madrid vs Plzen | Top Betting Tip: Real (6-0)
If Roma scored 5 goals against Plzen, be sure that Real is going to do the same and add one more. The fans are looking for some victim and the players too. Sorry Czech’s are a perfect opportunity for the Madridians to regain some lost confidence and to stop the goal drought. Even against much weaker teams, they can’t defend well, and they have problems. So you can just imagine what is waiting for them when Bale, Benzema and all other anxious members of the Europan champion step on the pitch. You know, someone has to pay for all the previous bad results. Our first choice is Real to score over 1.5 HT. The odds there are solid. The second one is fulltime/halftime Real and over 3.5 goals. Hosts to keep clean sheets is also nice. To cut it short Real Madrid – Plzen 6:0.
