Czech Republic and Montenegro go head to head in the Group A fixture on Monday 10th June. Czech Republic will be hoping to make it two wins out of two to put a strong foothold in what is a very competitive group. For Montenegro, they are currently sitting bottom of the table after a disappointing 1-1 draw to Kosovo on Friday evening.
Kick-off time: 7.45pm.
Date: Monday 10th June 2019.
Competition: Euro 2020 Qualifying
Venue: Andrův stadion (Olomouc)
With the European Championships for 2020 having been increased from a 16-team tournament to a 24-team tournament since 2016, it has given the opportunity for countries like Montenegro, that haven’t qualified for a major competition before to qualify and compete at the highest level.
With group A consisting of only five countries, both these teams, along with Bulgaria and Kosovo will see this as a fantastic opportunity to qualify for this tournament.
The Czech Republic are a long way from the side they used to be in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. There has been a rebuild going on for some years since some of their greats retired from the international side. With most of the Czech players playing their domestic football in their home nation, they are lacking exposure to other forms of the game around Europe.
Roma striker Patrik Schick has already become the main focus of the Czech side at the age of 23. He scored twice last time out against Bulgaria on Friday night and is set to start again on Monday.
Unlike their opponents, most of the Montenegro squad play their football across various leagues in Europe. Unfortunately for them however, their star players Stevan Jovetic and Stefan Savic are both out with injury, making this game and therefore their whole qualifying campaign a real uphill task.
They do however have striker Stefan Mugosa available, who scored last time out against Kosovo.
When looking at the recent results for these two sides, what you notice straight away is that they don’t score too many goals. This will be a fairly tight game, however without the presence of Savic at the back for Montenegro, the Czech Republic forwards will fancy themselves to take advantage and grab a few goals.
After scoring a brace last time out, I’m convinced Patrik Schick will find the back of the net again for my Czech Republic vs Montenegro predictions. You can get him to score anytime at 13/8 with the Magic Sign.
With Montenegro having so many important players out with injury, it is hard to see them getting a result here. However I feel as if they will be able to find a goal from their attack, just that it will not be enough to turn the Czech side over.
Our tip is for BTTS and Czech Republic to win with looks a good bet at 3/1 with Ladbrokes given the form of both of these teams and the expected open game.
