Russia vs Czech Republic - Free Betting Tips

Russia
Czech Republic

Russia host the Czech Republic this Monday evening in an international friendly following their opening matches in the UEFA Nations League. The World Cup 2018 hosts, Russia, overachieved massively during their home tournament, scoring eight goals in their opening two games against Saudi Arabia (5-0) and Egypt (3-1). Although the Czech Republic have a rich history in the sport with the likes of Petr Cech, Tomas Rosicky and Pavel Nedved all representing the country, they did not reach the FIFA World Cup and have not tasted the success that they once did. This affair will certainly be an interesting insight into where both sides are following a very contrasting few years for both sides. Here, we take a look at both sides recent form in the new UEFA Nations League competition, their previous meetings with each other, and of course, the best bets this week.

Russia vs Czech Republic Betting Tips: Form Guide

Over-achieving Russia Continue Good Form

Russia’s success at their home World Cup earlier this year is no secret, having defeated Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and most impressively knocking out the mighty Spain on penalties (4-3) following a 1-1 draw. Having reached the Quarter Final of the World Cup, they had surpassed any expectation, but were ultimately defeated by Croatia on penalties following a thrilling 2-2 draw. Russia have lost just one match in their previous six matches, tasting defeat only at the hands of Luis Suarez’s Uruguay as Russian Smolnikov was handed a red card in the first half. During the World Cup, Russia’s goal-scoring ability shone brightly, with Denis Cheryshev scoring a total of four goals and Artem Dzyuba scoring three, placing Cheryshev third in the all-time Russian goal-scorers at World Cups. Since their success at the World Cup, Russia got their UEFA Nations League campaign off to a good start with a 2-1 victory over Turkey, with goals by none other than Cheryshev and Dzyuba. The competition is quite a mystery to most fans and players alike, with many unsure of exactly what is at stake, but the more competitive international football, the better! Their victory over Turkey has continued their positive momentum from the World Cup, so they are going to be a tough side for any team to beat.

Czech Republic Lacking Confidence

The Czech Republic have not reached the heights that they once did, as their big-name players seem to have declined in recent times. They have won four from their last six matches, losing two against Ukraine and Australia. Having not reached the World Cup, they are not near as active as most top-level sides would hope to be, competing in competition or qualifier matches just twice in the last twelve months. They were building good momentum at the back-end of 2017, beating San Marino by a hefty 5-0, the fan-favourite Iceland (2-1) and Qatar (1-0). Following this decent run of wins, they were surprisingly battered 0-4 by Australia in an international friendly match, which would have damaged their confidence massively. Despite this, they returned to defeat World Cup entrants Nigeria (1-0), but were then disappointingly defeated by Ukraine in their most recent match. Their match against Ukraine was part of the UEFA Nations League, where the Czech Republic took an early lead with a goal from Schick in the fourth minute. The Ukrainians fought back through goals by Konoplyanka (45+1) and Zinchenko (90+3). The late winner for Ukraine will hurt the Czech Republic squad, and as Russia won their previous game, the momentum seems to be with the home side this Monday.

Russia vs Czech Republic Preview: Recent Meetings

These two sides have met just three times in total, with one of each result possible occurring (one Russia victory, one draw and one Czech Republic victory). The first time they met was back in the 1995/1996 European Championship, where the Russians came back from a 2-0 deficit to end the game 3-3. The most notable result was part of the 2012 Euros, where Russia defeated the Czech Republic side 4-1, as star-players including Arshavin, Rosicky and Cech all took to the field. The most recent fixture was an international friendly back in June 2016, where the Czech Republic came back from a 1-0 disadvantage at half-time to win by 1-2, as goals came from Tomas Rosicky and Tomas Necid in the 49th and 90th minute respectively. Although international sides rarely meet, due to the nature of the game nowadays, it is very tough to gauge an idea of any advantage or disadvantage to either side due to the distance between meetings. In this case, with one result each, it really is tough to judge, but we must say that Czech Republic have a slight advantage in recent meetings, having won the most recent match between them.

Russia vs Czech Republic Prediction: Russian Home Win

This Monday’s fixture may not be the primary talk of the footballing community, as it is being billed as a friendly, but it promises to deliver an entertaining evening of football. Russia have had great success of late with their World Cup success, and their more recent win in the UEFA Nations League, so they will be out to gain another important win this week. We have backed them to beat the Czech Republic, as Russia have an edge in confidence, form and even star quality these days. Although the Czech Republic won their last meeting against Russia, things have dramatically changed on the international scene since then, with the World Cup shaking things up massively and changing the whole dynamic of international football. Dzyuba is the man to watch here, as is the serial goal-scoring machine Cheryshev, so be sure to look out for the markets regarding those two to make it on the scoresheet. We hope you have found value in our analysis of the form and recent results of Russia and Czech Republic and can use the information provided to make the best bets for you.
