The RM vs VP match preview –
The defending champions of the UEFA Champions League are Real Madrid and they will be playing a game against Viktoria Plzen in the new season.
Real Madrid are a team who are going through troubled times. The team did lose a big start in Cristiano Ronaldo but the fact their legendary player and manager Zinedine Zidane decided to walk away has hurt them the most. Julen Loptegui hasn’t done much to make things better as he looks out of ideas. They have lost three games in a row and may already have been out of contention for the La Liga title. Talks about sacking the coach are increasing and this might be the last game of the Spaniard’s career as the coach of the most successful team in the UEFA Champions League.
Meanwhile, Viktoria Plzen are a side who are sitting stable in the second spot of their domestic table. The team aren’t one of the best in Europe but the fact they have made their way into this competition speaks volume of their intentions. However, this might be the best chance this club will ever have by winning the biggest game of their life as Real Madrid aren’t in the best form. It would be the ideal time to capitalise on the misfortune that has befallen on their opponents.
