UEFA Champions League picks for Sheriff vs. Plzen
Before you tune in to Tuesday’s match, you need to see the UEFA Champions League picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. He is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Plzen vs. Sheriff, Eimer is backing Plzen to score at least one goal in the first half at -130 odds. Considering Plzen has played like the superior team to start this season and already took a positive result in the first meeting between the two, this was already a relatively safe bet. Plzen has also scored in the first half in four of its five games to start the season across all competitions, including its first leg matchup against Sheriff.
Another element working in Plzen’s favor is the game takes place on home soil, and even in the cozy confines of Doosan Arena, the side will have an enthusiastic crowd. Visiting goals serve as a tiebreaker in aggregate scoring, so Plzen should still work to find a goal or two in the match, with Sheriff sure to press the game offensively. Sheriff had more of the ball in the last last meeting, but will need a pacier approach on Tuesday, which should open up the game in transition for Viktoria.
“The desperation of being behind in aggregate will force Sheriff to do nothing but attack this game, which should force counter-attack opportunities for Plzen,” Eimer told SportsLine. “I see both teams grabbing a goal here but Viktoria overwhelming this Sheriff side.” Stream the match now here.
