Czech Republic vs Belgium: Predictions

Despite falling 1-0 behind early on, the Czech Republic thrashed Estonia 6-2 in their opening qualifier with a hat-trick from West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek adding to goals from Patrik Schick, Antonin Barak and Jakub Jankto. Jaroslav Silhavy is looking to guide his nation to only their second World Cup and first since 2006, but a qualifying group containing Belgium and Wales is sure to provide a stern test of their credentials.

Belgium are the undoubted favourites to top this group and got their qualifying campaign off to a great start, coming from behind to beat Wales 3-1 in their opener — goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Thorgan Hazard and Romelu Lukaku got the job done. Roberto Martinez’s men finished third at the 2018 World Cup and will be looking to take this golden generation to a third consecutive appearance at football’s most prestigious tournament. Belgium have never lost a competitive match to the Czech Republic and will be confident of continuing that run here.

Czech Republic: Match Stats

Belgium have never lost a competitive game against the Czech Republic and head into this match on a run of five consecutive wins, scoring at least two goals per game along the way. Romelu Lukaku has scored five goals in his last five caps, while he and Kevin De Bruyne have both netted in Belgium’s last two games.

Tomas Soucek has scored four goals in his last two caps for the Czech Republic, though the nation go into this match looking for their first competitive win and goals against Belgium. That said, Silhavy’s side have won their last three games and have more than enough quality in their squad to extended their recent record against Belgium to three wins out of four (including friendlies).
