England qualified for the UEFA Nations League finals taking place later this year and they are undefeated in their last 5 International matches, winning 4 and drawing 1.  Their last outing was a 2-1 home win against Croatia in the UEFA Nations League and they have won their last 3 International matches played at home.

The Czech Republic have also been in decent form and finished 2018 with 1-0 victories over Slovakia at home and Poland on the road.  Their away form was very hit and miss in 2018 with 2 wins and 2 losses in their last 4 away matches which included a 5-1 beating at the hands of Russia.

England and the Czech Republic are joined by Montenegro, Bulgaria and Kosovo in Group A and England are the 2/13 favourites to top the Group – click here for Group A betting.

These sides have met once in a friendly back in 2008 where the sides drew 2-2 in England.


Suggested bet:  Handicap, England (-1) at 9/10

England have looked in solid enough form and with morale in the squad high, I think they will be too good for this Czech Republic team and can win by more than a goal.
