Serbia (@1.14) vs Czech Republic (@6.0)

Our Prediction:

Serbia will win

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

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.

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.

The Czechs are determined to regain second position in the standings and we predict that they are going to emerge triumphant in the Stadion Pod Goricom clash. The hosts are likely to leave their hearts on the field, but seeing that key attacker Stevan Jovetic is out of contention, we are not tempted to put our money on Faruk Hadzibegics troops. Czech Republic, on the other hand, are eager to bounce back from a shocking 2-1 loss to Kosovo, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.

Now Trending Football Predictions

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.

However their form and luck might be changing since the most recent clash that took place a couple of days ago, a friendly match against Hungary ended with their victory of 2-1. In those 4 matches, they recorded 2 losses and 2 draws, and have a 3:10 goal difference. That must have lifted their spirits, and it will help them to go into this match a bit more enthusiastically, and since their opponents are known for conceding goals, I expect them to net at least one. Montenegro, universally known as The Brave Falcons are hoping to finally get some better results and move away from the lower half of the group standings. Right now they are in the 4th place with 2 points from 4 games.

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.

Czech Republic Team News

Despite drawing 1-1, Mondays visitors struggled to contain Bulgaria, as they conceded 2.1 expected goals for, which tells us that they really ought to have conceded more than once. Granted Montenegro faced the Bulgarians on the road, but their performance was a poor one. Like Czech Republic, Montenegro also lost heavily against England, though they were not able to match the efforts of the Czechs against Bulgaria.

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.

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?

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.

The only clean sheet they kept on the road in World Cup qualifying came at San Marino, while the visitors have enough going forward to give us confidence in their defence. The visitors have scored five times in their last two games, but theyve ended up with a -1 goal difference after problems at the back. As a result, we are backing both teams to score on Saturday, while we are backing a 1-1 draw to continue the hosts unbeaten record here.
