Czech Republic vs Slovakia Prediction: Nations League Match on 18.11.2020
The final round of fixtures in Group B2 of the Nations League take place this week, and both the Czech Republic and Slovakia will be playing for vital points to achieve their targets.
Nations League Preview
The Czech Republic are the only team that could stop Scotland from winning this Nations League group, but they will be aware that only three points will do against Slovakia this week. The hosts in this fixture have won three of their five games so far, and are the highest scorers in this group. They have been in good form during this international break, and will come into this fixture having won in their last Nations League fixture against Israel. That was a must-win game for the Czech Republic, and they worked incredibly hard to get the three points that they needed. They took the lead early in that fixture through Vladimir Darida, as he fired home inside the opening ten minutes. Israel were unable to trouble the Czechs in that fixture, as they registered just two shots on target. The Czech Republic will be hoping for another excellent performance like this against Slovakia.
Slovakia surprisingly find themselves at the bottom of this Nations League group, and defeat in this fixture will see them relegated to Group C of the competition. However, they will be a testing opponent for the Czech Republic this week, as they have been in excellent form over the past seven days. They reached the European Championships after beating Northern Ireland in the final of their playoff, while they also recorded a first win in the Nations League in their most recent fixture. They achieved those first three points against Scotland, with Jan Gregus scoring the goal. Slovakia will need to match that performance once again against the Czech Republic this week.
Czech Republic vs Slovakia Head To Head
The Czech Republic have a dominant record against Slovakia, as they have won on eight occasions in the past. They have also won the last four against Slovakia. The most recent of those was a 3-1 win back in September.
Czech Republic vs Slovakia Prediction
The head to head record would indicate that the Czech Republic will come into this fixture with a huge advantage, but it’s hard to ignore the form of Slovakia. For that reason, we expect this match to end in a score draw.
