Wales vs Czech Republic: Predictions
Wales registered a 1-0 win over Mexico on the weekend, however, it counted for nothing more than a confidence boost with the friendly breaking up their 3-1 defeat to Belgium last week and Tuesday’s home game against the Czech Republic. Kieffer Moore’s goal provided the difference in the game against the Mexicans but all eyes will be on Tuesday’s game now with points to make up for after their defeat to the Belgians.
The Czech Republic currently top the group after beating Estonia 6-2 in the opening game and then drawing against the FIFA world ranked number one side, Belgium, on the weekend. The Czechs took the lead against Belgium on Saturday but Romelu Lukaku’s goal on the hour mark saw the two sides leave with the points shared.
Tuesday’s visitors have not qualified for a World Cup since 2006, but topping the group on four points will have pleased their manager Jaroslav Šilhavý who will be hoping they can keep Wales near the bottom of the group without a single point come the end of the game on Tuesday
Robert Page was able to rest some of his more important players over the weekend in their game against Mexico with the likes of Gareth Bale watching the game from the bench ahead of their crunch match on Tuesday night.

Wales vs Czech Republic: Match Stats
Tomas Soucek has been a revelation for West Ham in the Premier League this season having scored nine goals in the league so far this season. The midfielder continued to impress in their opening game against Estonia as the 26-year-old netted a ‘perfect’ hat-trick in their 6-2 win.
Over their opening two games, the Czech Republic have scored seven goals and conceded three. An average of five goals per game could well continue on Tuesday with Wales looking to get their first points on the board to prevent themselves from falling behind in their quest for a place in what would be only their second World Cup participation ever.
