Fiorentina vs Viktoria Plzeň: Betting Preview

Fiorentina vs Viktoria Plzeň Match Preview

Fiorentina and Viktoria Plzeň square off once more in the UEFA Europa Conference League quarterfinals, a week after the sides drew 0-0 in Czechia.

La Viola are at this stage of the competition for the second year running, having reached the final last May. They are looking to reach back-to-back continental finals for the second time in their history, having reached the first two finals of the now-defunct UEFA Cup Winners Cup (1960/61 and 1961/62).

Their domestic form has left something to be desired, having gone winless in their last five. Across all competitions, they have just one win in seven, that coming in the Coppa Italia against Atalanta.

For Plzeň, this is their maiden European quarterfinal, with the Czech club being the only team left in the Conference League not to have lost in Europe this term (qualifying included). This is their best European run ever, as they look to become the first Czech club to reach a continental semifinal since Slavia Praha in the 1995/96 UEFA Cup.

The calendar year has been kind to Plzeň, who has only lost once in 2024. While they do have a few injuries in the team, motivation will be quite high to go one step further in the Conference League. Like Fiorentina, they are still left in their domestic cup, which means they could potentially win a cup and continental double.

Fiorentina vs Viktoria Plzeň Prediction

Fiorentina to win at 1.40, Fiorentina to advance at 1.20

Fiorentina will be the overwhelming favourite for this return match, especially since they are unbeaten at home in the UECL this season. Several key players were rested on Monday, with virtually a fully fit squad at Vincenzo Italiano’s disposal.

They will have it difficult though: not only has Plzeň not lost in Europe this term, but they have only conceded three goals across the 15 games, having not conceded more than once in any of those games. While La Viola will still be favoured to move on, it will certainly not be a walk in the park.

Fiorentina vs Viktoria Plzeň Tips

Under 2.5 goals at 1.85

Seeing that Plzeň has such a strong defensive record in the Conference League this term, do not expect too many goals to be scored. Moreover, five of Fiorentina’s last seven UECL games had less than 2.5 goals per game.

With that said, expect the Italian side to score in this match. They have found the net in their last 21 European home games. Ending that streak would be an impressive feat from Plzeň.
