England v Czech Republic Preview

England are long odds-on favourites to win this qualification group. After their run to the semifinals of the World Cup 2018, they then managed to top their Nations League group over Croatia and Spain. So it’s a good wave of positivity that the Three Lions are riding at the moment. The Three Lions are integrating more youth into their squad with the call ups for Declan Rice and Callum Hudson-Odoi. England are undefeated in their last five games, winning four of those.

They have scored at least two goals in each of their last three played as well. England have taken a clean sheet in three of their last five played. At home in their most recent competitive action of the Nations League, England lost 2-1 against Spain and then beat Croatia by the same scoreline. Against Croatia, the Three Lions came from behind with goals from Jesse Lingard and Harry Kane in the last 12 minutes. England have lost one of their last 18 home internationals. They also completed qualification campaigns for Euro 2016 and the World Cup 2018 with perfect home records.

  • The Three Lions have lost one of their last 18 home games

The Czech Republic finished second in their Nations League group last year behind Ukraine. Out on their travels, they took a loss in Ukraine and a one-goal margin win in Slovakia. They have won three of their last five, but two of those were against Slovakia and both of those Nations League wins were by a one-goal margin only. Each of their last three games played have produced a 1-0 scoreline, with the Czech Republic winning two of those. During their World Cup 2018 qualification campaign, they had a tough time of things on the road, with their only victories happening against Azerbaijan and San Marino.

England v Czech Republic Predictions

England to win: The Three Lions look to be in a good place at the moment and they should get three home points. They are a qualification beast and the Czech Republic really haven’t impressed against higher quality opposition away from home. England to win to nil is at 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 19th, 2019 at 3:50 p.m.)
