In the Champions League 2022/2023 Viktoria Plzen vs. Inter Milan, Viktoria Plzen will face off against Inter Milan. This will be an exciting match between two strong teams. Here is a prediction of what will andell as some team news and lineups.

Though they came close to knocking off Liverpool in the knockout rounds of last season’s competition, the Nerazzurri were no match for the perennial Bundesliga winners last Wednesday, suffering a 2-0 defeat on Group C’s opening night.

Simone Inzaghi’s second season in command had begun on a brighter note after being dethroned as Italian champions by Milan in May – and losing the Coppa Italia final to Juventus – but recent performances meant that pressure was on to secure three points at home to Torino on Saturday.

Inzaghi’s team were on the verge of being forced to settle for a draw by tenacious opponents before the game began, but a brilliant moment of creativity between Nicolo Barella and Marcelo Brozovic finally unlocked the visitors’ defense in the 89th minute.

Inter Milan have already won their last seven Serie A home games, but their next assignment in a busy autumn calendar takes them to the Czech Republic, where they won 3-1 over Slavia Prague in the Champions League in 2019.

With such a difficult draw, this week’s match may easily be labeled as the first leg of a third-place decider, but if the Nerazzurri instead aim to compete for a top-two finish, then success is almost crucial.

Viktoria Plzen had never won their opening match in a Champions League group stage in three prior attempts, and they were always unlikely to break that streak last Wednesday when they traveled to Catalonia to face Barcelona.

Plzen fought hard to stay in touch with their illustrious hosts, but after falling down on 13 minutes, they were eventually sent home licking their wounds following a 5-1 hammering.

A tiny glimmer of optimism supplied by Jan Sykora’s goal shortly before halftime was quickly extinguished when Robert Lewandowski struck the second strike of his hat-trick in first-half stoppage time, completely destroying any possibility of a dramatic upset.

Nonetheless, the Czech First League winners are in good form ahead of Inter’s arrival, having not only won six of their first seven domestic matches to reclaim top spot – including Saturday’s 3-2 victory at Sigma Olomouc – but also navigating a difficult path in Europe.

Michal Bilek’s team advanced to the group stage after defeating HJK Helsinki, Sheriff Tiraspol, and Qarabag in the second qualifying round, but they must now take a huge step up in class.

In the United Kingdom, the United States, and India, how can you watch and stream Viktoria Plzen vs. Inter Milan on TV and online?

On Tuesday, Inter will face Viktoria Plzen in the UEFA Champions League at the Doosan Arena. The Serie A outfit is looking for their first win in this season of the league after being defeated by Bayern Munich on an opening day. However, their hard-fought win against Torino at the weekend would have strengthened their spirits ahead of the journey to the Czech champions’ stadium.

In their last two games, the hosts have followed a similar pattern to Inter. They were outplayed by Barcelona in the Champions League at Camp Nou, but they managed to beat Sigma in the domestic league to get back on track. However, there is no doubt that their powers will be put to the test when they face Simeone Inzaghi’s side in the European competition in their own backyard.

Viktoria Plzen vs. Inter Milan Team News:

Viktoria Plzen squad and team news:

Michal Bilek’s team is free of injuries. He like to play his team in a 4-2-3-1 shape, with Thomas Chory at the helm. Jhon Mosquera and Jan Sykora will play on the wings, with Pavel Bucha and Lukas Kalvach serving as defensive midfielders.

Jindrich Stanek should hold his place between the sticks, and he should be protected by a back-four consisting of Vaclav Jemelka, Ludek Pernica, Lukas Hejda, and Milan Havel.

PositionPlayers
GoalkeepersStanek, Jedlicka, Tvrdon
DefendersHejda, Jemelka, Pernica, Kasa, Tijani, Holik, Havel, Reznik
MidfieldersKalvach, Bucha, N’Diaye, Cadu, Kopic, Pilar, Vlkanova, Cermak, Alvir, Sykora, Mosquera, Jirka
ForwardsPejsa, Bassey, Chory, Kliment, Dedic

 

Inter Milan team news and roster:

Inzaghi will be without Romelu Lukaku, who is still recovering from a thigh injury. As a result, Edin Dzeko will play alongside Lautaro Martinez up front.

The manager could go with fresh legs in midfield. Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Nicolo Barella, and Hakan Calhanoglu could all play in the center of the park.

Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij, and Federico Dimarco might start in a three-man backline, with Andre Onana in goal.

PositionPlayers
GoalkeepersOnana, Handanovic, Cordaz.
DefendersDumfries, De Vrij, Bellanova, Acerbi, Dimarco, D’Ambrosio, Darmian, Skriniar, Bastoni.
MidfieldersGagliardini, Gosens, Asllani, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Barella, Brozovic.
ForwardsDzeko, Martinez, Correa.

Simone Inzaghi could resort to former Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana on Tuesday evening after finally resting long-serving captain Samir Handanovic against Bayern last week.

With a weekend trip to Handanovic’s previous club Udinese on the horizon, Inter may choose to rotate their resources in other areas as well, with Robin Gosens, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Alessandro Bastoni all pushing for recalls after coming off the bench against Torino.

With Romelu Lukaku still out with a thigh injury, Joaquin Correa will compete with Edin Dzeko for the role of strike partner to Lautaro Martinez in the visitors’ 3-5-2 formation.

Tomas Chory, who scored twice at the weekend, should keep his position up front for Plzen ahead of fellow striker Fortune Bassey, who was directly involved in four goals from six games during the qualifiers.

Michal Bilek is expected to name Pavel Bucha and Lukas Kalvach as his central-midfield combination in a 4-2-3-1 formation, as he did against Barcelona; Jan Sykora, who has two goals in his previous three games, including one at Camp Nou, is set to play on the right side.

Viktoria Plzen is a strong team that has been doing well in recent years. They have a good chance of winning this match.

Inter Milan is also a strong team, but they have not been doing as well as Viktoria Plzen in recent years. They will still put up a good fight, but Viktoria Plzen is more likely to win.

Inter Milan began their latest Champions League campaign by hosting one of the continent’s finest teams at San Siro, only days after suffering a derby defeat against city rivals Milan, their second Serie A defeat in three matches.
