Plzen face Greek side Olympiakos at home in the 1st leg of the Champions League 2nd qualifying round on Tuesday, 23rd July, as both clubs look to get a result on their way to the group stages.
Viktoria Plzen qualified for the Champions League second qualification round by finishing 2nd in the Czech League. They recently rose to become one of the best teams in the league, not finishing below 3rd since the 2010/11 season, winning 5 titles along the way.
Despite finishing 3rd in their group last season, they had a decent campaign that included a 2-1 wins over Roma and CSKA Moscow, before dropping to the Europa League and losing to Dinamo Zagreb.
Greece’s most decorated club, Olympiacos failed to win the league for the 2nd year running after a record 7 in a row from 2011-2017. However, despite their domestic record, their best Champions League campaign was a Quarter Final elimination by Juventus in the 1998-99 season.
