Czech Republic vs Kosovo
Date: Thursday, 14 November 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Doosan Aréna (Plzeň).
Kosovo needs a win this Thursday. With their desperation and h2h win in the reverse fixture, they stand a good chance to find the back of the net at least once. However, the home advantage, abundance in experience, and the realization that only two more games remain should help Czech in posting the win this Thursday.

Czech Republic vs Kosovo Prediction
Czech produced something inconceivable in their most recent Euro qualification tie. In the initial stages of the campaign, it seemed like England would cruise though with no one to oppose. Such was the magnitude of their performances. But, in the previous round, England, on the road, were defeated 2-1, by the Czechs.
As usual, the English had opened their account early itself, via a Harry-Kane-penalty. But the joy was shortlived, as the hosts equalized just four minutes later. Then ensued a back-and-forth match-up of competitiveness. Towards the end of the fixture, the home team fired in their second, and which later turned out to be, the winner of the match.
Kosovo, on the other hand, made light work of incoming Montenegro, to post a win to nil in front of the home crowd. Two goals in the first half-hour of the fixture ensured the three points for the team.
This Thursday, the Czechs do have the home advantage, and they have the confidence of trumping the mighty English, who had been scoring goals for fun. Moreover, the fact that Kosovo has a playoff spot assured, due to their performance in the Nations League, might bring down their intensity level a bit.
Importantly, while Kosovo has been displaying good quality in their games, keep in mind that they are a relatively inexperienced group of players. Likely, a win for Czech seems the likely outcome.
However, the competition is in its closing stages, and qualification is on the line. No point could be afforded to drop, and importantly, Kosovo has been playing fearlessly. They have already defeated this opponent once, and all these factors combine together to pick BTTS as a safe choice.
