Qarabag vs Viktoria Plzen – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Qarabag haven’t lost a competitive home fixture since February ahead of their latest test against Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Qarabag to Win

Qarabag are an extremely tough nut to crack on their own patch, as several strong European teams have found to their peril in the Champions League pre-qualifiers over the summer. Lech Poznan (5-1) and Zurich (3-2) were both beaten at the Tofiq Bəhramov adına Respublika stadionu in the competition’s early phase and Viktoria Plzen could suffer the same feat on Wednesday. With Qarabag experts at harnessing home advantage, we recommend backing them to prevail here.

Both Teams to Score

While Qarabag are adept at carving out positive results at home, few of their performances have produced clean sheets. Indeed, both teams registered in each of their three UCL qualification home assignments in 2022/23 so far and on Wednesday, they host a Viktoria Plzen outfit that holds a 100% strike rate in this phase of the tournament to date. Both teams carry significant threat in the final third and a stake on BTTS is advised as a consequence.
