Viktoria Plzen:

The hosts will be without Michal Krmencik due to a knee ligament injury. Lukas Hejda and Jan Kopic are expected to feature as both of them recently made their comebacks from injury let-offs.

Real Madrid:

Santiago Solari has a host of defenders injured, including Raphael Varane, Jesus Vallejo, Marcelo and Daniel Carvajal. This only implies that the likes of Sergio Reguilon and Nacho are expected to start again in midweek.

Teenage sensation Vinicius Junior bagged an assist soon after coming on against Valladolid and thus, should be pushing for a start.

Vikrotia Plzen v Real Madrid: Prediction

The Galacticos seem to have found their feet once again post the dismissal of their former boss Julen Lopetegui. In the last couple of games, it has not been a plain sail for Ramos and co., but they have found a certain rhythm. They will get over the line against Plzen by a small margin.

Predicted score: Viktoria Plzen 2-3 Real Madrid
