Czech Republic vs England
EURO 2020 – Qualification
Date: Friday, 11 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Sinobo Stadium (Prague).
As two toppers of the group take on each other, we can rightfully expect a thrilling encounter. When the schedule was released, the Three Lions, and Borek Dockal and his boys were tipped to cruise through the qualification process, but against expectations, Kosovo has thrown their name into the mix with some admirable performances, and as such, the Czech contingent will need to make the most of this home tie.
Czech Republic vs England Head-to-head (h2h)
- These two had squared off as part of this same tournament, and then the English had won 5-0, at home.
- Gareth Southgate’s men have never failed to score at least two goals per tie.
- In the previous ten years, Harry Kane and his boys hold a 100% unbeaten record.
- In the case of official encounters, the record is 100% wins for the Three Lions.
Czech Republic vs England Prediction
Southgate’s men have been on a rampage ever since the gaffer took charge. After their incredible run at the World Cup, they extended it to the Nations League, and now to the qualification campaign of the Euros.
At present, the team is placed at the top of the table, and they have managed it in style. Despite having played fewer games than the rest of the teams in the group, they hold a healthy lead at the pinnacle, and have scored almost double the number of goals than the next best offensive squad, and have conceded half the number than the next best defensive unit.
While Jaroslav Silhavy’s men do have the home advantage, we need to consider the fact that the opener of this competition saw these two lock horns, and then England won with a massive scoreline of 5-0.
As of now, Kosovo does hold potential for an upset, and as such, no cavalry will try to take it easy and invite unnecessary risks.
Moreover, the Czechs have not won against this opponent in the last ten years, and have lost all of their official ties. Also, take note that England has scored five or more goals in every match of this tournament bar once, and they will be all enthused to keep the momentum going.
Consequentially, in spite of the support of the home crowd, count on Dockal and his boys to lose this Friday.
