Real Madrid host Viktoria Pilzen
The European champion Real Madrid host Viktoria Pilzen in a match from Group G of the Champions League. Let’s see what’s going on with these two sides in our vip soccer bets.
They might not want to admit it, but Real Madrid are struggling without Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese superstar was sold to Juventus during the summer and Real surprisingly did not sign a superstar to replace him. Right now the team have some serious problems in La Liga, which was proven by their home defeat against Levante during the weekend.
In the Champions League things are also not perfect. Los Blancos started their campaign with a beautiful win over Roma, but in the second round they lost their trip to Moscow against CSKA. Right now Real Madrid are second in the group, being on one point behind CSKA.
It’s clear that Real Madrid’s manager Julen Lopetegui might not finish the season, if the team’s results do not improve. If Los Blancos make a mistake against Viktoria, this could be Lopetegui’s last game with the club.
Far from surprising, Viktoria Pilzen are 4th in this group with just one point won so far. The Czech club started its campaign with a home draw against CSKA Moscow, which was followed by a heavy 0-5 defeat against Roma at the Olimpico. Now the manager Pavel Vrba is aware that his team will have another very difficult trip abroad, this time – to the legendary Santiago Bernabeu.
In our vip soccer bets we can conclude that despite of being in a crisis, Real Madrid is a heavy favourite to win against Viktoria Pilzen. Los Blancos are a team with big problems at the moment, but we feel that they still have what it takes to beat teams like Viktoria at home. But let’s see.
