Czech Republic vs Montenegro
EURO 2020 Qualification
Date: Monday, 10th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Andrův stadión (Olomouc).
Czech had to begin against England of all teams, and it took the very life out of them. Against the world cup semi-finalists and at their own home, Czech conceded one goal after other, to take the tally till five. Raheem Sterling completed a hattrick by the 70th minute, while Harry Kane too joined the assault. At the end of all this misery, the poor team had to endure its own goal in their name too.
The bullies that they are, England did the same against Montenegro too. This time though, the victims had home advantage, and they had broken the deadlock. In reply to the sole goal by the hosts then, the English rallied to record five goals in a row. Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane were once again on target for the guests.
Montenegro’s solace has been the draw they recorded on the road against Bulgaria. It looked as if the visitors might have done enough for the three points. But right at the dying stages of the game, the hosts equalized the scores and held it till the end.

Czech Republic vs Montenegro Prediction
The 100% winning record that Czech holds over this rival will be their biggest motivating factor coming into this tie. On top of that, Czech has never even conceded a goal whenever they lined up opposite to Montenegro, be it at home, or on the road.
Czech Republic will also be looking to bounce back after their humiliating loss against England, which has put them at the bottom of the table, and in a more vulnerable position due to the resulting goal difference. At their home, Czech will be determined to unleash all they have to get back onto the track.
In addition, Montenegro was winless in 12 of their last 14 games and is on a current winless streak of four fixtures. The team also managed to lose three of their last four ties as well.
On the road, Montenegro has been even poorer. They could return just four wins from their last 21 attempts.
Expect the hosts to dominate proceedings from the get-go.
