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

The visitors finished second their Nations League group, but they face a challenge to repeat that finish in Euro 2020 qualifying. They have beaten Montenegro and Bulgaria at home so far, but their 5-0 loss to England is telling. They have lost every other away game across their last nine trips, a run which covers 18 months of internationals. In that time theyve bee beaten at the likes of Russia, Ukraine and Australia, while Kosovo will fancy their chances going forward in this clash.

His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder as well. On 15 August, 2012 Marko Bakic made his Montenegro debut against Latvia at the age of 18. After ending his loan spells with Spezia and Belenenses, he moved to Braga in 2016, penning a five-year contract. The Montenegro international, who was born in Budva on 1 November, 1993, then moved to Fiorentina, but he made no more than three league appearances with the Viola from 2013 to 2016.

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.

Czech Republic vs Montenegro: Prediction, Preview and Betting Tips

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.

After the separation of the country in 1992, Czech Republic continued the proud tradition by qualifying for each of the next six European Championship finals, losing to Germany in the final of the 1996 tournament. Czech Republic national team is the natural successor of the Czechoslovakia side that dominated world football during the 20th century, winning one European Championship trophy and coming second at 1934 and 1962 World Cups.

As a result, I looked at other important factors such as the recent performances of the two sides, as well as their styles of play. Furthermore, in 4 of Kosovos last 5 matches, we have seen goals on both ends of the field. Therefore, their head to head records were excluded from my analysis when crafting these selections. Therefore, those seeking higher-rewarding wagers can opt for the combination of both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals. Im sorry to inform you that this is the first official match between the two national assemblies.

Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:

These two will have high hopes following their start, but who will secure a spot at Euro 2020? Theres an interesting clash in Englands group this weekend, as two of the top three meet. Could Kosovo complete an incredible rise through the ranks to finish second behind England, or will the Czech Republic boost their hopes of making the finals with a win in this trip? While England are off facing Bulgaria, second-placed Czech Republic are heading to third-placed Kosovo in a potentially decisive game.

Looking at these teams H2H records gives us more insight as what to expect in this match. They clashed 3 times in total, and on all three occasions, Czech Republic was triumphant. Even though Montenegro already suffered a defeat by their opponents about three months ago, given the current form of two teams, and their styles of play I believe that the hosts will score one goal, and I expect Czech Republic to give their best in defending their current second spot in the group, and to ultimately prevail. In all those games they won to nil and scored 6 goals.

However, while they werent great against Bulgaria, Montenegro have at least shown themselves to be capable when it comes to getting the ball in the net, as theyve scored in both of their qualifiers so far. Whats more, Montenegro also averaged 1.67 goals for on the road in the recent Nations League. They breached the English, which is something that the Czechs failed to do.

They have even more to play for at Stadion Pod Goricom with a top 2 spot still just points away, which could see the pressure mounting. Czech Lions have beaten Montenegro with three goals to Nil beforehand, as Jankto and Schick found the net and Kopitovic conceded an own-goal, but we feel theyre in for more of a challenge now.

Czech Republic vs Montenegro Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

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.
