England
Czech Republic

Now there’s been a little breathing room between the last time we saw these two teams in late 2018, it’s clear that each has good reason to feel confident. England – who are clearly the bookies’ favourites – made history by reaching the World Cup semi-final last year. And while the Czech Republic can’t make any similar claims, a couple of recent victories suggest this match may not be the pushover some are predicting. For more, check out the rest of our England vs Czech Republic preview.

The England vs Czech Republic best odds certainly favour the home side here. The World Cup semi-finalists have low-risk 1/5 (1.20) match odds at Paddy Power. Considering their captain won the Golden Boot during that tournament, a bet on Harry Kane to score first makes for a good medium-risk wager, with 11/5 (3.20) odds at Ladbrokes. In contrast, fans of the Czech Republic – who failed to even qualify for last year’s World Cup – will have to settle for high-risk 11/1 (12.00) odds on a win at BetVictor.

England vs Czech Republic Betting Tips: Form Guide

England Battle On Past The Summer Of 2018  

The memory of England’s 2018 World Cup run looms large over everything the team does – and probably will for quite some time. Their defying of expectations in that tournament still has influence over fan expectations and, we’re sure, the England vs Czech Republic betting tips for today too.

However, it’s not all been plain sailing since then. After England fell to Croatia in a heartbreaking 2-1 loss, they were also convincingly beaten 2-0 by Belgium in the third place play-offs. They also lost to Spain 2-1 In the UEFA Nations League. Does this mean that England’s abilities were overstated because of their World Cup success? Well, by some circles, perhaps. But in fairness, it was only really against Belgium where the team looked especially weak – likely due to a lack of post knockout motivation.

Things also looked better after that in a 1-0 international friendly win over Switzerland. This once again saw a goal by Rashford, showing off the depth of England’s offence. Next up was a game against the team which broke their hearts mere months before. And although their October battle with Croatia ended 0-0, England looked the stronger side. This fact surely provided some relief.

They continued to exercise their demons by besting Spain 3-2, easily triumphing 3-0 over the USA and then, at last, they beat Croatia in an emotional 2-1 victory. With momentum like that, England will be tough to topple.

Czech Republic Struggle To Maintain Form Post Qualification Failure

It seems that a big part of the reason why some England vs Czech Republic match previews rate the away side so lowly by is that they have lacked any kind of big, headline-grabbing victories in recent memory. They failed to get into the World Cup 2018. This means they sat out the event where the opportunity to make people take notice of your team is found for so many.

While we can say with confidence that it’s not all been bad for the Czech Republic team – they bested both Poland and Slovakia 1-0 in their most recent outings –, and that they are underrated by some, we also have to be realistic about the limitations they’ve shown. Their results have been up and down ever since the qualifications. They have won only slightly more contests than they have lost, and usually to teams that aren’t considered on the level of their upcoming opponents.

When you consider that they lost 5-1 to Russia – another side which defied expectations at the World Cup –, it’s easy to see why the England vs Czech Republic betting tips seem so confident in a win for the home side. This is a team that is simply yet to prove themselves against a top-level international side. And they will have quite the mountain to climb if they intend to do so here, even with recent victories boosting their confidence.

England vs Czech Republic Preview: Recent Meetings

This game truly is one for the history books, as England and the Czech Republic have only ever met twice in each’s long and storied past. The good news for the underdogs is that their most recent battle back in 2008 ended in a 2-2 draw. However, England fans will be all too happy to point out that is a significantly long time in the world of football. Plus, the home team looks to be in much better health than they did a little over a decade ago.

Another decade before that in 1998, England won the fixture 2-0. Although that contest is far too old to be particularly relevant, it does mean that the Czech Republic has never bested the English side. This could prove to be a small psychological advantage.

For the most part though, with so little to go on historically, we’d say that each team can look at this fixture as a fresh challenge, without too much weight being given to past encounters.

England vs Czech Republic Prediction: Strong England Victory

Just because we think that some commentators have underrated the Czech Republic team here, that doesn’t mean that we think they are likely to win this match. In all honesty, we can’t really see how one could come to the conclusion that a victory for the underdogs is the most plausible outcome based on all the information we have.

Let’s take a quick look over the facts. England has played better in virtually every modern contest you can find, and they have the results to back this up. Combine that with a supremely talented squad and the sense of momentum that they have after besting Croatia, and you have one team that is truly tough to beat.

This is not to disparage the efforts and skills of England’s opponents though. We think that the difference maker here is not the fact that the Czech Republic is weak, but rather than the England team are so strong. With that in mind, our England vs Czech Republic prediction has to be a strong victory for the home side.
