Inter Milan will host Viktoria Plzen in a UEFA Champions League fixture at San Siro on Wednesday. The hosts are currently occupying second position in Group F, having collected seven points from four games, and a victory against the Czech outfit will seal their spot in the round of 16 stage of the competition. Plzen, meanwhile, are sitting at the bottom of the group, yet to open their account. Although Michael Bilek’s side are out of contention for qualification, they can still snatch a Europa League spot via an improbable turn of events. Inter are heading into the match on the back of a thrilling 4-3 win over Fiorentina in a Serie A match on Sunday, while the visitors got the better of Banik 3-1 in a Czech first League game, a day earlier.

Inter Milan are heading into the match full of confidence, having won four of their last five games across all competition. During that period, Simone Inzaghi’s side dropped points only against Barcelona in their last Champions League match on October 12 after playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw. Nicolo Barella, Lautaro Martinez and Robin Gosens netted for the Nerazzurri at Camp Nou to earn a point. Meanwhile the reverse fixture against the La Liga giants had ended in a narrow 1-0 courtesy of Hakan Calhanoglu’s stunning strike on the stroke of halftime. Last time out, Inter got the better of Fiorentina in a Serie A match courtesy of a brace from Lautaro Martinez and one goal each from Barella and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Plzen, on the other hand, beat Banik in a Czech first League match courtesy of goals from Lukas Kalvach, Jan Kliment and Jhon Mosquera. It was Plzen’s 10th league-win in 12 games, taking their points tally to 32, at the summit of the standings. Meanwhile, Bilek’s side have been one of the worst performers in the 2022-23 Champions League season thus far, as they are yet to open this account after four games. Their last European match against Bayern Munich on October 12 ended in a 2-4 defeat despite the fact that Adam Vlakanova and Jam Kliment got on the scoresheet.
