Czech Republic have made a decent start to qualification as they (along with Wales) sit on seven points from five games with two victories, one draw and two defeats. They last played in September when drawing 1-1 with Ukraine in a friendly while in qualification they last played and lost 3-0 away at Belgium. At home, the Czechs have lost just two of their last eight (to England and Denmark) although Scotland did win here in September 2020.

Wales are also on seven points although have played on four games played but sit nine points behind group leaders Belgium. This means second and a place in the play-offs is their only route to qualification. Their last game saw them involved in a goalless draw at home to Belarus while their last match on the road saw them defeat Belarus 3-2.

Czech Republic vs Wales: Match Stats

The reverse fixture in March ended 1-0 to Wales and we expect this one to be also low on goals given how both teams setup. Under 2.5 goals is short but when combined with a home win looks the value call. The Czechs tend to be strong at home in qualifying and Belgium only drew here 1-1 back in March so this is not an easy task for the visitors who will keep the scoreline down.

Patrik Schick has been in great goalscoring form in the Bundesliga with six goals in seven appearances for Bayer Leverkusen. He will be of confidence and lead the home forward line and looks worth taking to be the first goalscorer.

These two sides met in Wales in March and the Czechs lost 1-0 so will be looking for revenge here. In four encounters this century it is one victory each and two games finishing all-square. These meetings have produced a total of just four goals and three of these came in the same game.
