Montenegro – Czech Republic Match Prediction | 30-08-2019 14:45

The Czechs hosted Bulgaria on Friday, went 0-1 down less than three minutes into the game, but equalized soon, and early in the second half they took the lead, which they protected until the final whistle. Patrik Schick scored both Czechias goals, and the fans did not like seeing him get substituted in the 78th minute. Before beating Bulgaria, they had lost to England (more like gotten embarrassed by England, losing 5-0 on the road). Jaroslav Silhavy, Czechias coach, explained after the match, in the Press conference, that if it were up to him, Schick would have stayed on the pitch until the final whistle, but at some point it became obvious that he was tired, and thought it would be better to take him out, avoid risking an injury, send in some fresh legs. Czechia are on three points from two matches in the group.

Unlike at Wembley or in many of their recent games, they offered a good amount going forward, posting 2.51 expected goals for, while they prevented their reasonably limited opponents from creating much, as they conceded only 0.41. A repeat of that showing would surely see Mondays hosts emerge victorious against Montenegro, who drew against Kosovo last time out. Czech Republic delivered a much-improved effort to beat Bulgaria on Friday evening.

After just three minutes Jaroslav Silhavys team were 1-0 down. The attacker from AS Roma gave the match a decisive double tack to make it 2-1 home win. The Czechs were the better team, but basically it was the individual class of Patrik Schick that made the difference. However, the fact that the Czechs have still some room for improvement became clear last Friday in the duel against Bulgaria.

Pavel Kaderabek is a Czech Republic defender born on 25 April 1992, who has enjoyed a bright start to his professional career. Coming through the youth ranks at Sparta Prague and gaining some first team experience during a loan spell with Viktoria Zizkov, the right-sided defender was finally able to show what he is capable of during the 2012/2013 season and he didnt need a lot of time to make the next step in his career.

At the end of all this misery, the poor team had to endure its own goal in their name too. Raheem Sterling completed a hattrick by the 70th minute, while Harry Kane too joined the assault. Against the world cup semi-finalists and at their own home, Czech conceded one goal after other, to take the tally till five. Czech had to begin against England of all teams, and it took the very life out of them.

The Czechs are in the current European Championship qualification fully in the target. The defeat in England had to be scheduled, but otherwise the team from the Czech Republic against the other competitors usually have the favorites role. There is still a long way to go, but a victory against Montenegro would at least probably knock one competitor out of the race. After missing the 2018 World Cup in Russia, at least the seventh European Championship participation in series should be put in a dry cloth.

If we add in the fact that Montenegro have looked weak at the back, but also got on the score-sheet against both Bulgaria and England, then a small bet on Both Teams to Score starts to look like the most viable option, though this is by no means a game to get heavily involved in. For all they outclassed Bulgaria, Czech Republic showed that when push comes to shove, theyre not strong at the back, which is something that was evident during the Nations League, where the Czechs kept just one clean sheet in four games.

Patrik Schick scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Bulgaria, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. In their last meeting in a competitive match Czech Republic emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Jovetic-less Montenegrins dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with self-proclaimed Kosovo and seeing that they are on a five-game winless run in all competitions, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team.

In this case, almost incredible things happened. Montenegro coach Ljubisa Tumbakovic, a Serbian citizen, refused to serve his team against Kosovo last Friday. There is something going on in Montenegro right now. The association had no choice but to dismiss the national coach without notice. The turmoil of the Balkan war seems to be so rooted in some people in this region that they always have an impact on the sport again.
