Note: The odds are subject to change before kickoff. We recommend visiting the bookie for updated prices before placing your bet.

Czech to fight for points

This game promises to be a tough fixture between two teams that are ranked 40th and 66th respectively by FIFA. While the bookies are favouring a home victory, we want to take a cautious approach with our first tip. Albania has the best defence in this fixture and hasn’t lost an away game since a 1-0 defeat to Turkey in October 2019. The visitors have won two and drawn one of their away games this year against Andorra, San Marino and most recently, Wales. While Czech is yet to lose at home this year, the hosts haven’t been good defensively and should sweat for points in this fixture. We are backing away to win or draw.

Both teams will find the net

Our second prediction is goals on both ends of the pitch. Both teams are fairly good offensively and because there are no previous meetings between these teams, both managers will likely throw caution to the wind for a good result. With such an approach, we expect goals from both teams. Czech has kept only two clean sheets in the last ten games, which makes Jaroslav Silhavy’ side more vulnerable in this game. The visitors have kept five clean sheets in their last ten games and we fancy them to score first for a good price of 3/1 on Betfred.

Fewer than three goals expected

Because our first tip is a cautious one since Albania’s defence will be hard to break down, we expect few goals in this game. A good home run for the Czech Republic and a remarkable away run for Albania means both teams will want to keep their good run of results in recent games.

Game Preview: Albania Looking for the Third Consecutive Away Win in 2021

Czech and Albania play against each other for the first time and we expect this fixture to draw a lot of excitement from fans of both teams. Check out our game preview for more details.

Czech Republic

The hosts are ranked 40th by FIFA, 16 places above Albania. With that, we don’t expect the hosting manager, Jaroslav Silhavy, to field his strongest in readiness for Euro 2021. Jaroslav Silhavy averages 1.72 points per match after 25 games in charge. However, losing ten games so far is not a record to smile about with Euro 2021 in the offing. For Jaroslav Silhavy, winning this game is not only important for his team’s ranking on FIFA’s list but also necessary for match fitness.

Albania

Albania is 66th on FIFA’s list, a feat they have achieved after putting in some good performances in recent games. We expect the visiting manager, Edoardo Reja, to put in a shift in this game given that his side will not participate in Euro 2021. However, this game will be an important test for the visitors, especially in readiness for UEFA World Cup Qualifiers which will kick off in September. The visiting manager averages 1.63 points per match and managing a team that lost only once in the last nine games should be a motivating factor for the Italian tactician.
