Wales vs Czech Republic Prediction & Match Preview


Czech Republic

30 March 2021 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET World Cup Qual

Wales and Czech Republic go head to head at Principality Stadium in Wales in what is expected to be a close World Cup qualifier. 

The Dragons suffered a 3-1 loss to Belgium in the opening match of their qualifying campaign, but they regained a much-needed confidence thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Mexico in Saturday’s friendly.

Gareth Bale, who was rested in the win over El Tri, is likely to return to the starting XI, but Aaron Ramsey remains on the sidelines, as well as Joe Allen, who suffered an injury on his return to the national team. 

The Czechs have been producing fine displays at the start of the qualifying process, and given the absentees in the home team, away win should be considered. 

A man to watch in the away team will be West Ham ace Tomas Soucek, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line after set pieces.

Caretaker manager Robert Page rotated the team for the friendly against Mexico last time out, but he is expected to field his strongest XI for this one.

Tomas Soucek netted three times in his side's demolition of Estonia, and no player has scored more goals than him in the qualifiers so far.

Lukas Provod is not far off his compatriot in the scoring charts after bagging goals in back-to-back games for his country.
