Viktoria Pilsen – Sparta Prague betting tip, prediction & odds 22.05.2024

MOL Cup, Final Wednesday, 22.05.2024

The first title is already here, the second is to follow! Sparta Prague want to round off the 2023/24 season by winning the cup and must travel to Pilsen on Wednesday. It’s finals time, so small things are likely to be decisive.

The home side will only finish third in the league, making the cup all the more important. Our bookmakers favor them minimally due to the home advantage, but I’ll tell you in my Viktoria Pilsen Sparta Prague betting tip why I’m leaning towards the double chance X2 at Bet365

Four points ahead before the last matchday? No, nothing is burning here! Sparta Prague are Czech champions 2024, but the big party will have to wait a few more days. The reason: they could even win the double.

The grand final of the MOL Cup takes place on Wednesday, the third final in a row for Sparta. They lost in 2022 and 2023, once against Slovacko and the other time against city rivals Slavia

Of course, they don’t want a treble of defeats, they want their first success since 2020. Six defeats and seven wins – whenever the team reaches the final, they can never be sure of victory.

Sparta beat SFC Opava 2:0 in the semi-finals, while the previous round was a thrilling 3:2 after extra time in the derby against Slavia. Even more so than in the first two rounds, Sparta didn’t think much of clear-cut affairs here

1:0 against Lisen, 2:1 against Bohemians, all results taken together were only “clear” in the most recent 2:0. The offense is also rather restrained, not even against weaker opponents many goals were visible.

The regular season in the Czech Fortuna League came to an end at the end of April, with the path leading to the playoffs. In the championship round, with one game remaining, things went very well for the team, or rather: they just kept going well

Three wins and a draw, now with a four-point lead over Slavia, there’s nothing left to lose. Only two defeats in the entire season, that’s really something to be proud of.

One of them: a 4-0 defeat in Pilsen in March! So is Viktoria a scary opponent? I can’t quite put it like that. The results have alternated for years, with both teams winning once each in the current season

Wednesday’s game at the Doosan Arena in Pilsen could be an interesting one. Sparta have lost eight of their last nine matches here and won one of their last 16.

Pilsen are therefore a kind of fearful opponent, even if the odds in our sports betting apps do not suggest this. Viktoria come off a little better at an average of 2.20 to 2.80, but don’t forget that they are playing at home

Viktoria Pilsen have not managed to keep up with the best in the Fortuna Liga. 69 points have been collected, leaving them 17 points behind Slavia. After two wins in the championship round, they have now added a draw and a defeat

I can’t really blame the team, after all they’ve known for a long time that the championship title is no longer on the cards. But now Pilsen can win the cup, and in front of their own fans.

They won the cup once in 2010 and suffered painful defeats in the competition in 2014 and 2021. This year, however, there was no lack of sovereignty: 10:0 against Lazne, 3:1 against Sigma Olomouc, 3:0 against Jablonec and 3:0 against Zlin, show an almost self-evident entry into the final

But of course the opponents weren’t the toughest either, Sparta are in a completely different category. Does it help that the Cup showdown is taking place in your own stadium?

There have been five defeats in the league this season, three of them at home – so the Doosan Arena is certainly no guarantee of a win in the end.

Viktoria Pilsen or Sparta Prague, who will be crowned cup winners in the Czech Republic on Wednesday? The hosts have already won 4-0 against their upcoming opponents this season, but overall the 2023/24 season was much weaker.

Sparta have only lost two games, which is definitely something to be proud of. The team also has a lot more experience in the MOL Cup than the team that will be at home on Wednesday.

I believe in 90 exciting, intense minutes that don’t necessarily have to produce a winner. As a result, I see the visitors slightly ahead and am therefore betting on them:

Double chance X2 strikes!
