The RM vs VP match preview –
The defending champions of the UEFA Champions League Real Madrid will be looking to lay down a stamp as they take on Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday.
Real Madrid looks like a shadow of their former selves this year. Since the departure of coach Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo, the team has been in a disarray. Even the new coach Julen Lopetgui was unable to do anything significant. He was let go due to a thumping the team faced against Barcelona. It is a dark time to be a fan of Real Madrid and it will be this period that will show the true character of this team.
Meanwhile, Viktoria Plzen are sitting as joint leaders of the Czech First League. The team are having a venture in the UEFA Champions League but look like a fish out of the water. The level of competition in this tournament is way higher than Viktoria Plzen has ever faced. They are still getting to grips with things and maybe a second stint here next year will be their fare shot for qualification into the Round of 16.
