This is a Group D match up between CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen. Both teams lost their opening game and are looking for their first win and points in the group stage.
“When we manage to win the title or qualify for the Europa League or Champions League, it’s the culmination of our efforts. We’re a small club and our fans can appreciate that,” Viktoria Plzen forward Marek Bakos said.
“From the point of view of Viktoria it’s very important. And when it comes to the Czech [UEFA] coefficient and representing Czech football abroad, we’re glad we are doing a good job and that all Czechs can be proud of us.”
