The reigning Czech Champions Viktoria Plzen start their Europa League route with a home fixture against Italian side AS Roma. Last season Plzen failed to go beyond the group stage and they are desperate for a better outing this time. They won just once from their 6 games last Europa League term, losing 4 during the process. Their biggest success was the round of 16 appearance in 2013/14 and 2012/13 editions. They earned a place in the Europa League group stage after losing to Bulgarian team Ludogorets Razgrad in the Champions play-off.
Meanwhile, Luciano Spalletti’s AS Roma found the way to the group stages of Europa League after they were knocked out of the Champions League by FC Porto. In the last season, they entered the round of 32 in Europa League after finishing third in their Champions League group. They were defeated at the round of 16 by fellow countryman rivals Fiorentina. Left back Emerson and holding midfielder Daniele De Rossi are suspended for this fixture, while defensive trio Antonio Rudiger, Abdullahi Nura and Mario Rui are sidelined with injuries.
