Czech Republic vs England Prediction 11 October 2019
Match preview from the site: LiveScore
- A 3-0 victory over Montenegro in the Czech Republic’s last home game was their third competitive home win in a row, and has helped propel them into second place in European Championship qualifying (ECQ) Group A. All three of those wins, and their last five competitive home games, involved the Czech Republic scoring before half-time (HT: W3, D2), a useful ability considering they’ve kept a clean sheet in just four of their last six matches.
- However the hosts started their ECQ campaign with a 5-0 drubbing against this game’s opponents, in what was the Czech Republic’s largest ever defeat. However they have an exceptional record at home in ECQs, drawing just once across 32 such games (W27, D1, L4), with all four losses arriving by no more than a two-goal margin.
- Four wins from four, with England winning at half-time and scoring at least four goals in each, has the ‘Three Lions’ in pole position, and has also extended their unbeaten record in tournament qualifiers (WC/EC) to an astounding 43 games (W34, D9).
- Yet whilst England have scored at least two goals before half-time in three of their four ECQ qualifiers so far, the two games that they failed to keep a clean sheet saw England concede the opener within 20 minutes.
- Players to watch: Patrik Schick has been the Czech Republic’s first goalscorer in four of the last six international games he’s got on the scoresheet.
- Raheem Sterling was England’s hat-trick hero in the previous H2H – he’s scored the opener in three of the last five internationals he’s found the net.
- Stat attack: Four of the Czech Republic’s last five ECQ home victories came via a 2-1 scoreline.
- There’s been five penalties across England’s four ECQ fixtures this campaign.
- England have scored after the 70th minute in five of their last six ECQ away fixtures (W6).
