Viktoria Plzeň win last game before Champions League debut

Viktoria Plzeň won their last Czech league game before their debut in the prestigious Champions League, with a 3:2 away victory over Sigma Olomouc on Friday. Plzeň, who have been in indifferent form in the domestic competition, will face the Belarus’s BATE Borisov in Prague on Tuesday in their first match in a Champions League group stage that will also see them take on two of the biggest clubs in Europe, Barcelona and AC Milan. Viktoria Plzeň won the Czech league for the first time this year, the centenary of the club’s founding, before becoming only the third Czech side ever to reach the Champions League.
