Viktoria Plzen v Manchester City Preview, Champions League, Tuesday 17th September 2013

Viktoria Plzen have had a good run during the Champions League Qualifiers but with looking back through the challengers I cannot name one team I have heard of or heard much about, so Tuesday night will become a true test as they look to face a far superior side in Manchester City. With 6 straight Champions League wins they have scored an impressive 20 goals and conceding 7 goals but again none of the opponents look to be that challenging.

Manchester City kick started their season in style with an impressive 4 – 0 win over Newcastle United but have since then hit a few bad notes with a loss to Premiership new boys Cardiff City in a thrilling game which saw the Welsh side come out surprise 3 – 2 winners. But since then results still haven’t been what would be expected, okay there was a win at home to other promoted side Hull City but more recently drew away from home to Stoke City where they should really be gathering another 3 points from clubs who are lacking the team in which City themselves possess.

Viktoria Plzen v Manchester City Team News

Viktoria Plzen Team News:

With Horvath and Cisovsky banging in 7 goals between them during qualifying they can only hope they will both be fit come Tuesday night when they face their hardest challenge yet in this competition, but these two players are not the other ones who can find the net with plenty of others also hitting the target during qualification after notching up 20 goals in the 6 qualifying games previously had.

Manchester City Team News:

With Manchester City struggling to keep out goals with the exception at Stoke it must come as a worry to Pellegrini who’s side were in previous years renowned for such a tight back four, and with Matija Nastasic’s recent comments admitting that his side need to improve greatly while the club struggle with missing club captain Vincent Kompany, Micah Richards and more recently Gael Clichy and new signing Martin Demichelis.

Sadly no head to head statistics are found between these two sides.

Who Has The Advantage?

Manchester City would be the stronger team here with playing in the toughest league in the world, and having won the Premiership for the first time in the 2010-2011 campaign and also looking to challenge for the title this year you would have to feel the game would be theirs to lose.

Average Goals Per Game?

No goals have been scored between these two sides in recent history or with any information found.

Viktoria Plzen’s form on paper is by far superior to Manchester City and if it wasn’t for Man City losing to newly promoted Cardiff City then I would of given them the baton here.

Viktoria Plzen v Manchester City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Now time for my verdict, well lets be honest it is Manchester City. But then we have to look at their recent results as well, with the loss to Cardiff and recent draw against Stoke and with a defense prone to leaking the odd goal here or there you really could see Viktoria Plzen punishing them if they are not careful. Because that is one thing the home side have been doing and that is scoring goals quite freely.

So where do we go from here, you really would have to put your money on City winning here with just one player potentially worth more than the whole of Plzen’s team put together. So do we go for a 2 -1 or a 3 – 1 win by Man City? Or could we potentially see the home side looking forward to this and scoring a few goals themselves.. Hmm a tough call indeed but if we are true to ourselves we must go for the gut feeling so I am going for a 3 – 2 win by Manchester City.

My next bet is a prediction including a goal scorer, we have Edin Dzeko playing very well so far this season under a new manager who has installed new found belief in the man used mainly as a part time sub under Mancini. We also have Alvaro Negredo and Sergio Aquero scoring goals which could be another option. But funnily enough I am going for Stanislav Tecl to score first and then Manchester City to win 2 – 1 which is giving very high odds considering the home side have plenty of potential to score come Tuesday night.
