Serbia – Czech Republic Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 08:00

Stefan Mugosa scored 2 goals in the qualifying matches as well as one more in their most recent affair, so he will be the one to keep an eye on. Everyone in the hosting team is ready for the upcoming clash. Their newly appointed coach Faruk Hadzibegic has already had a great debut in the last match, where his team won over Hungary with 2-1, which ended their string of not so good results.

Czechia are on three points from two matches in the group. Before beating Bulgaria, they had lost to England (more like gotten embarrassed by England, losing 5-0 on the road). Patrik Schick scored both Czechias goals, and the fans did not like seeing him get substituted in the 78th minute. The Czechs hosted Bulgaria on Friday, went 0-1 down less than three minutes into the game, but equalized soon, and early in the second half they took the lead, which they protected until the final whistle. Jaroslav Silhavy, Czechias coach, explained after the match, in the Press conference, that if it were up to him, Schick would have stayed on the pitch until the final whistle, but at some point it became obvious that he was tired, and thought it would be better to take him out, avoid risking an injury, send in some fresh legs.

Montenegro had to host Kosovo on Friday without fans in the stands, as they were banned, following racist behavior by some of their fans against Englands Danny Rose back in March, when the two teams met in Podgorica. Next morning, the FA of Montenegro decided to fire Ljubisa Tumbakovic, the Serbian coach who had been in charge since January 2016. They went 0-1 down in the first half, and all they managed was to salvage a point, 1-1, a very poor result, that has them on two points from three matches in the group. Serbia-born players Filip Stojkovic and Mirko Ivanic also skipped the match, and their future in Montenegros national team will be re-evaluated. He boycotted the game, because Serbia do not recognize Kosovo as a country, and according to reports, Tumbakovic got pressured by high-profile people back home not to validate Kosovos existence sitting on Montenegros bench in this game. The reason?

Montenegro vs Czech Republic PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 10/09/2019

Since their nine-game losing streak in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, theyve managed to go unbeaten in a run which is almost two-years-old. The hosts have been in inspired form in recent years, which includes topping their UEFA Nations League group to secure a playoff spot for the Euros at minimum. Kosovo have really turned around their fortunes since finishing their first qualifying campaign with one point from 10 games. However, following 14 internationals without defeat Kosovo might not need that playoff spot after all.

With 15 goals scored across their last seven at home, we expect them to notch against the Czechs to keep thing strong run going. After all, the hosts have scored in their last eight home games. Kosovo come into this clash with all of their last four internationals finishing without a clean sheet. Theyve also scored in every qualifying clash so far, but all of those encounters have seen both teams score so far.

A repeat of that showing would surely see Mondays hosts emerge victorious against Montenegro, who drew against Kosovo last time out. Czech Republic delivered a much-improved effort to beat Bulgaria on Friday evening. Unlike at Wembley or in many of their recent games, they offered a good amount going forward, posting 2.51 expected goals for, while they prevented their reasonably limited opponents from creating much, as they conceded only 0.41.

On the other hand, Czech Republic is currently second placed in the group with 6 points gathered from 3 played games. Also in both of the opponents last 5 matches, we saw over 2.5 so I expect that trend to continue. However, they have a negative goal difference 5:6 in the qualifiers, and in their last 5 matches in all competitions 7:9, which shows us that they will probably allow some goals this time as well. In their last 5 matches in all competitions, they recorded 3 wins and 2 losses.

As a result, make sure to read my match preview to find the best betting tips and correct score predictions for this Saturdays event. Kosovo vs Czech Republic prediction is written ahead of the Euro Qualification fixture at the Fadil Vokrri Stadium in Pristina. The 5th round of the competition will be a close-contested one where the winner gets decided in the final minutes, therefore, I suggest wagering on it.

Since separating from Slovakia, Czech Republic only qualified for one of five World Cup finals. The Czechs also reached the last eight at the 2012 finals, but their World Cup record of late is pretty disappointing. The 1996 generation, featuring players like Pavel Nedved, Karel Poborsky and Patrik Berger, will forever remained etched in the fans memory, while the likes of Milan Baros, Jan Koller, Petr Cech and Tomas Rosicky are some of the other notable footballers.

The Montenegrins have collected only two points from possible 12 in Group A, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for them. Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Hungary in a friendly, Montenegro will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Czech Republic at Stadion Pod Goricom in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Out of the previous 5 fixtures, they recorded 3 wins and 2 losses. Furthermore, 2 of those triumphs came in the qualification rounds, which earned the Lions the 2nd spot in the group. It is worth noting that they averaged over 3 goals in their recent endeavours, therefore, I expect to see an exciting matchup with over 2.5 goals scored. On the other side, the Czech Republic, or the Lions as they are commonly known, produced a mixed bag of results recently.

Reason For Czech Republic vs Montenegro Betting Tips

If we add in the fact that Montenegro have looked weak at the back, but also got on the score-sheet against both Bulgaria and England, then a small bet on Both Teams to Score starts to look like the most viable option, though this is by no means a game to get heavily involved in. For all they outclassed Bulgaria, Czech Republic showed that when push comes to shove, theyre not strong at the back, which is something that was evident during the Nations League, where the Czechs kept just one clean sheet in four games.
