Czech Republic Preview – Can Euro 2020 bound Czechs keep the pressure on leaders Scotland with a win here?

It’s been a very interrupted campaign for Czech Republic with both international breaks hampered by players not being available. It’s one of the main reasons why the team who were favourites for the section currently trail Scotland by four points with two games remaining. Defeat in Glasgow in their last group match could prove to be the pivotal result which is frustrating for Jaroslav Silhavy’s men due to the number of chances they missed.

The Czechs have won away to the other teams in this section – their opponents tomorrow and rivals Slovakia. They will end their campaign at home to Slovakia on Wednesday. Only two wins and Scotland dropping points will be good enough for top spot.


Our betting prediction:
Czech Republic to score in both halves

Although it will be the aim of this squad to get top spot, it’s not the main objective. With Euro 2020 to come next summer it’s all about planning ahead for that competition and ensuring that some of these younger players add to their international experience. One of those is Alex Kral who move to Russia for big money last season. He’s already got a couple of goals in his 10 caps to date.
Jahub Jankto is another younger member of the squad with a lot of expectation as he continues to impress in Serie A with Sampdoria.

Israel Preview – Are Israel capable of following up their good win last time out with another three points?

The expectation for Israel in this group was to be competitive in what looked a very challenging section. With two games left, they still have a chance of qualification – albeit a slim one. A very promising 3-2 win away to Slovakia in their last match has set them up. And although they require three points here and at home to Scotland on Wednesday, there will at least be some optimism following a very lean spell.

That was the first win in seven games but in that time they only missed out on qualifying for the final of the previous Nations League – and within one game of Euro 2020 – by penalties.

Austrian coach Willi Ruttensteiner has only been in charge of the team since July but it’s been a positive enough start and one he’ll be hope his team can build on over the next few days. Particularly as it will be the last international football played until March.

As ever, the strength of this team lies in attack with strikers Munas Dabour, Eran Zahavi and Shon Weissman all playing for top European clubs. The lack of creativity in midfield and getting service to them has been the critical issue.
