It is an indisputable fact that the team from the Czech Republic, with its quality, has earned a place among the best teams in Europe this season, but football luck could have looked at them at least a little. They received by far the most difficult group with Inter, Barcelona and Bayern, and already after the first match, many believe that they will serve only to improve the goal difference.
On Tuesday, for the first time in history, they will play a Champions League game in front of their fans. We believe that this could be enough motivation for them to bravely face a much better opponent. Considering that Inter is in a mild crisis, with a disciplined game the home team could hope for a potential surprise.
If they play the match in the rhythm imposed by their opponent, as Barcelona did last week, their chances are practically minimal.
The ambitions of the Italian team are always high, but they will have a lot of problems securing a place in the next stage of the competition. Against Bayern, they seemed clueless on the field, which the opponent was able to punish in the right way. The crisis spread to Serie A, where they barely beat Torino 1:0 on Saturday.
Objectively speaking, Inter will fight with Barcelona for second place in the group. The defeat against Bayern made their situation difficult, so the pressure is already slowly building. Away team must get all three points in this game, because a possible failure could already mean the end of their hopes of further placement.
The most difficult games are those that must be won, and we are not too sure that the Inter players are full of confidence at the moment. Although the quality is on their side, we think they will have to sweat hard to take the points away.

Viktoria Plzen vs. Inter Prediction
Here we would avoid predicting the winner of the match, because we think that the bookmakers have set unrealistic odds.
In matches where two teams of the similar quality meet, a slightly rougher game can be expected, which in our opinion will not be the case this time. Viktoria committed 8 fouls against Barcelona, while Inter players fouled Bayern players 9 times, so from these numbers, it can be seen that neither of them is a fan of rough play.
A hot atmosphere is expected in Plzen, which could affect the outcome of the match. Despite that, Inter is still a big favorite, regardless of the current crisis.
Prediction: Under 24.5 fouls
