England vs Czech Republic
Europe – Euro Qualifiers
Date: Friday, 22nd March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
England is clearly the favorites in this group. With their magnificent performance in the world cup, only to be cut short just one round away from glory by spirited Croatia, the football-mad nation is clawing its way back to the top. The team is filled with some world-class talents, and it would be a shame if this generation fails to carve their name in history.
Czech failed to get something positive out of their Nations League campaign and avoided embarrassment only due to the presence of Slovakia in their midst. Their only victories in the group stages of the competition came against the now relegated Slovakia. This Friday, on the road, against the focused English team, Czech is obviously the underdog.

England vs Czech Republic Prediction
The English was unbeaten in 17 of their last 20 games and won four of their last five. Also, the team scored two or more goals in each of their last three fixtures. In home games, they remained unbeaten in 13 of the last 15. They also recorded six wins in the last eight home ties. Czech, on the other hand, lost three of their last six games, and three of their last five on the road.
Importantly, with some extraordinary talents in their midst and an inspirational coach like Gareth Southgate, there’s no telling what this group of players could achieve. They wanted to go all the way in the world cup but had to bow out to Croatia. As reparations, they definitely would be aiming the Euro and would want to start with a bang.
Expect the team to take ample advantage of their home status, and dominate the proceedings from early on. The team has the most probability to take the three points on offer.
