roma vs plzen Head to Head:

Roma and Viktoria Plzen will be meeting in the Champions League for the first time; their only previous encounter came in the group stage of the 2016-17 Europa League.

roma vs plzen Tip Reason:

Viktoria Plzen lost 4-1 in their only previous visit to Roma in November 2016. Roma have won each of their last five Champions League games at the Stadio Olimpico, scoring 12 goals whilst conceding just two in this time, both against Liverpool in a 4-2 win in the second leg of last season’s semi-final, albeit Roma lost 7-6 on aggregate. Czech sides have only beaten Italian opposition once in 10 previous Champions League encounters (D5 L4), a 1-0 Sparta Praha win over Lazio in December 2003. Roma haven’t lost back-to-back Champions League group stage matches since November 2014, when they lost twice in succession to Bayern Munich. Roma have only lost both of their opening two matches to a season in the Champions League once before, doing so in 2004/05 – they lost their opening match of that campaign 3-0 (against Dynamo Kyiv) just as they did this season (against Real Madrid). Viktoria Plzen have lost five of their six previous away games in the Champions League, conceding 16 goals in those games, with their only win on their travels in the competition coming in November 2011 against BATE Borisov (1-0). Viktoria Plzen have avoided defeat in back-to-back Champions League games (W1 D1) for the first time since December 2011; they have never gone three matches without defeat in the competition. Against Real Madrid, Roma’s Edin Dzeko became the just third player from Bosnia and Herzegovina to reach 50 Champions League appearances, after Hasan Salihamidzic (88) and Miralem Pjanic (55). Roma striker Edin Dzeko has scored five goals in four previous appearances against Viktoria Plzen in major European competitions, including a hat-trick for Roma in the group stage of the 2016-17 Europa League in a 4-1 win for the Italians.
