Czech Republic Prediction – Can Czech Republic return the favour?

All three points in this upcoming clash at home against 3rd placed Kosovo would seal Czech Republic’s place in next year’s European Championships and overall results in these group matches suggest Czech Republic can achieve a positive result here on Thursday night.

Czech Republic have won 4 of their first 6 matches in Group A having accounted for Bulgaria 2-1, Montenegro 3-0 and most impressive of all, group leaders, England 2-1 on home soil along with a 3-0 win away from home against Montenegro.

Although they’ve lost 2 of their 3 matches away from home to date (which includes a 2-1 defeat at Kosovo), it’s been Czech Republic’s solid and consistent results at home that have thrust them into the top two of Group A as they possess a 100% record within a record of 3-0-0 7/2.

Indeed, results overall at home in Euro qualifiers has been impressive for Czech Republic as they’ve suffered just 2 defeats out of their last 12 matches on home turf at this level, a run that includes 9 wins and 4 clean sheets.

Kosovo Prediction – Can Kosovo snatch qualification?

3rd placed Kosovo are just 1 point behind their Thursday night’s hosts ahead of this crucial penultimate clash in Group A and the visitors stand a decent chance of snatching qualification from under Czech Republic’s noses of they take all three points here.

It’s been a solid campaign for Kosovo so far in this Euro 2020 group phase as the visitors have suffered just 1 defeat out of their 6 matches overall, which was an entertaining 5-3 defeat away to England at Wembley, but wins against Bulgaria, Czech Republic (at home) and Montenegro have helped maintain Kosovo’s challenge for a top two finish.

However, whilst they still remain unbeaten at home with a 2-1-0 5/2 record, their mixed bag of results away from home might just cost Kosovo a first ever appearance at the European Championships.

An away record of 1-1-1 7/8 includes a 3-2 win at Bulgaria and a 1-1 draw at Montenegro, but also the 5-3 loss to England which has resulted in Kosovo possessing the worst defensive record away from home in Group A to date.
