Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Sheriff vs Victoria Plzen


Last season, Sheriff won the Moldovan championship for the 20th time, conceding only 8 goals in 28 matches, and for the first time in his history played in the group stage of the Champions League. To repeat this achievement, the “yellow-blacks” need to go through a difficult path again, starting from the first round of qualification. Sheriff reached the third round, scoring only two goals: 0-0 and 1-0 with Maribor and Zrinski.

On Saturday, Thomas's team shared points with Zimbru in the first round of the domestic championship of the new season: 1-1. Keston Julien scored for Sheriff, who is not a main player.

Victoria Plzen

Last season, Victoria won the Czech championship, having suffered only two defeats. This is her first title since 2018. Then she was the last time a member of the group stage of the Champions League. The current path to the desired goal began with the second round of qualification, where HJK was beaten without any problems: 2-1 away and 5-0 at home.

Bilek's team started the new season in the domestic championship with an away draw against Teplice: 2-2. Interestingly, Victoria bounced back from 0-2, and in stoppage time the opponent did not convert a penalty. Of the newcomers, it is worth noting Jan Kliment, who failed last season in Wisla, but in Victoria he scored in both fights in which he took part.

Game Totals Prediction

The teams will meet for the first time.

An interesting confrontation, because both teams had a great time last season, but if Michal Bilek continues to lead Victoria, then Sheriff was forced to change his coach - Stepan Tomas started working instead of Vernidub. Both teams have a long unbeaten streak. The “yellow-blacks” have more chances to continue it, because they play at home, where they concede very little. In this regard, Sheriff with Handicap (0) looks good for 1.94. The match will not be spectacular: the defense will be stronger than the attack, so here you can safely take Total Under (2.0) for 1.81 or Victoria Under (1.0) for 1.64.
