This Thursday the Czech box of Viktoria Plzen jumps to the Gramado of the Doosan Arena to receive the visit of the Portuguese team Sporting de Lisboa, in game corresponding to the return of the eighth finals of the UEFA Europa League.
Those led by Pavel Vrba practically showed their worst side of the competition in the first leg after losing 2-0 due to a double by Fredy Montero, making it clear that this league break due to the cold winter has affected their performance. And we say this because the current leader of the Czech League has only won a commitment from the six officials in 2018 and was in the previous round of the competition before a modest Partizan, and even the last weekend tied at home to two goals against Slovan Liberec adding three games without knowing of triumphs taking into account all the competitions, where two were defeats.
Meanwhile those led by Jorge Jesus after losing a game a few weeks ago before FC Porto practically said goodbye to the fight for the title of the Primeira Liga and we do not say it only because of the difference of five points that exists between them, but because the Dragons do not give respite. That is why the intention of the Lions is to reach the second that is Benfica with whom they are separated by a difference of three points and with this, achieving the desired qualification to the UEFA Champions League is latent.
But another of the main objectives is to win the UEFA Europa League, already in the first leg took a giant step to continue in the race, every time a 2-0 gives a lot of tranquility for the return game as no goal was received, for that reason this Thursday in Plzen they will try to look for that goal that puts the series directed.
