Plzeň face uphill task against Lyon in Europa League

Viktoria Plzeň are preparing to welcome the French club Olympic Lyonnais in the second leg of their Europa League round-of-16 tie on Thursday night. The Czech champions face an uphill task; after having lost 1:4 in Lyon last week, they need to win by at least three goals without conceding to win on aggregate. Plzeň manager Dušan Uhrin said his team made trivial mistakes in the first game, and must improve their tactics to keep their chances of advancing alive.
