Qatar vs Czech Republic: Preview and Predictions

Qatar vs Czech Republic
International Friendlies
Date: 11th November 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Stadium (Doha).

It has been another dismal run for the Czech in the World Cup Qualifications where they were nowhere near making the top twp ahead of October’s fixtures.

With an eye on the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers and UEFA Nations League, the team led by Karel Jarolim is looking to boost up the confidence with positive outcome in November’s pair of friendlies.

Three days after the trip to the World Cup contestant Iceland, the Czech Republic will travel to Asia to take on Qatar in their capital of Doha.

Qatar

The Maroons have had a disastrous run in the Asian WC Qualifiers where they ended rock-bottom in the Group A with two wins and seven losses in ten outings.

The horrendous run provoked the change on the bench as the Spanish manager Felix Sanchez took over his Uruguayan colleague Jorge Fossati.

He started off with wins in friendlies over Andorra and Turkmenistan, but a series of three losses in four following matches killed the momentum for the Asians.

The last of them came to Curacao 1-2 at home exactly a month ago.

Czech Republic

Plzen’s Michal Krmencik will be the one to look after here.

The Czech’s top scorer in the recently finished qualifying term notched two past San Marino in the closing fixture as well as five in last five matches for Plzen in both Czech Liga and Europa League).

Qatar vs Czech Republic: Prediction

Qatar conceded two goals to Curacao in October and they allowed 15 in 10 qualifying outings against defensive-minded Asian sides.

We thus see the Czechs as pretty clear favourites here and we’ll back them to take the win here at the decent-value 1.90 odds.
