Last five H2Hs: First meeting since 2005

Our Czech Republic vs North Macedonia prediction suggests this’ll produce a similar outcome to the last two meetings which were both won by the Czechs in qualifying for the 2006 World Cup. They won the home clash 6-1 during that campaign.

Czech Republic preview: Changes expected despite big win

Despite thrashing Malta with a largely fringe eleven, the Czech Republic may go much stronger here with something closer to the team that will start the Euros. They have no major injury concerns.

Predicted Lineup: Kovar (GK), Holes, Krejci, Zima, Jurasek, Soucek, Sadilek, Coufal, Barak, Schick, Hlozek

Player to watch – Adam Hlozek

There should be a recall for Adam Hlozek in this game with the 21 year old part of the Bayer Leverkusen squad that won the double in Germany. He only made five Bundesliga starts but caught the eye with a hat-trick of assists in the recent 5-1 win at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Hlozek’s eye for goal

The Leverkusen man featured regularly in the Europa League this season where he averaged 2.3 shots per game. He averaged a goal every 224 minutes across league and European football this term and also chipped in with three goals in two appearances in the German Cup.
