England vs Czech Republic Betting Preview – 22/03/2019

England vs Czech Republic

All eyes turn to Gareth Southgate this Friday, as he looks to kick off his young England side’s campaign in the Euro Qualifiers with a win over the Czech Republic at Wembley Stadium. Since the arrival of Southgate, England have found a second wind with the introduction of many young players who have the potential to make a formidable side. The hosts find themselves as clear favourites to qualify from Group A with odds of 1/7 with SkyBet. The Czech Republic poses the most threat on paper to England and arrive as second favourites to qualify from the group. These two sides have only met twice in the past and England remain unbeaten with one win and one draw on their record.  

Anything less than qualifying in first place, from Group A will come as a huge disappointment for this England side, as they should have the quality to see off any side they will face. Southgate will arrive at this fixture with his side in good form after a successful outing in the Nations League which saw them qualify for the semi-finals. The hosts have won their last three games on the bounce and remain unbeaten in their last five fixtures. Their latest game saw them face Croatia who they beat 2-1. SkyBet has England as clear favourites for this fixture and is offering odds of 3/10.

The Three Lions return to home ground for this fixture where they have been in good form and they have managed to keep two clean sheets in their last three home games. SkyBet is offering odds of 4/7. After showing his class constantly in the Bundesliga this season, Jadon Sancho has made the squad to face Czech. The youngster has bagged eight goals and 13 assists showing the danger he can pose. Betway has Sancho to score priced at 2/1. Harry Kane poses the biggest attacking threat for his side and scored against Croatia in his last outing. Betway is offering odds of 3/4 for Kane to score.

The Czech Republic will be pushing to secure at least a point from this upcoming fixture with them also looking to qualify for the knockout stages. If you fancy backing Czech to qualify from Group A they are second favourites and SkyBet has them priced at 9/1. Czech finished in second place during the Nations League and will be looking to build on their recent form which has seen them secure back-to-back wins. Their latest win came against Slovakia who they beat 1-0. SkyBet has Czech to beat England priced at 10/1.

Czech have shown good form in front of goal in recent games with them bagging goals in four of their last five, however, they have conceded in three of those fixtures as well. Bet365 has both teams to score priced at 13/8. Patrik Schick will provide his sides main attacking threat on Friday and has two goals in his last three games for Czech. Betway has the forward to score priced at 11/2.
