Czech Republic vs San Marino
WC Qualification Europe
Date: 8th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Doosan Arena.
Czech Republic will close a dismal WC Qualification campaign on Sunday evening when they host the rock-bottomed San Marino side at Doosan Arena.
The match will have no significance whatsoever to the World Cup contestants list, but the hosts will enter it as massive favourites due to a massive gulf in quality.
Karel Jarolim’s destiny on Czech’s bench will be under a big question mark following his poor run in this qualifying term.
Narodak took no more than eight points in eight matches which keeps them miles away from the battle for the top two positions in the Group C.
The Czechs have three defeats and a draw in last four matches (including a 2-1 loss to Belgium in a friendly), but they will at least have the chance to finish the qualifying term victorious against one of the weakest sides in Europe.
La Serenissima expectedly failed to clinch a single point so far in the competition and they can hardly expect anything else but a yet another defeat in the last match of the campaign.
Pier Manzaroli’s men scored only two goals in eight games and their negative run extends to 19 consecutive losses.
Czech Republic v San Marino: Head to head
San Marino have never managed to score a goal in five meetings with Czech Republic who have bagged as many as 26 at the same time.
The match from late-March this year saw the Czechs netting six goals at Stadio Olimpico di Serravalle with braces from Antonin Barak and Vladimir Darida.
Czech Republic v San Marino: Prediction
It’s not hard to predict the home win for the Czech against a side that lost 19 straight outings, but we’ll push hard and back the hosts to make it a big one and claim the victory by five or more goals at 6/5.
