Czech Republic vs Kosovo Match Preview
Czech Republic only need to justify their odds-on quote to win this game in order to qualify for Euro 2020 – but we think they could be taken to the wire by improving Kosovo.
The only team to have taken points off England so far in Group A with a 2-1 home victory last month, the Czechs will probably find themselves in the play-offs if they do not book an automatic place at next summer’s tournament – and that is definitely true of Kosovo.
But while that success against England means it is understandable that Jaroslav Silhavy’s side are a short price to beat Kosovo, we do not rate them as a certainty because their opponents are a real up-and-coming outfit.
The new kids on the block in Europe having only been granted admission to FIFA in 2016, Kosovo are making a real impact in their second ever qualification campaign and would leapfrog the Czech Republic in the Group A table if they could triumph in Plzen.
The Dardanians already have one victory over the Czechs to their credit as they won the reverse fixture 2-1 in September with a decisive goal from Standard Liege defender Mergim Vojvoda midway through the second half.
Bernard Challandes has made his team very difficult to beat (see stats above) and, by holding them to a draw here, Kosovo may just leave the Czechs needing to win their last group match in Bulgaria on Sunday to make sure of advancing to Euro 2020.
