Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
A spot at the 2024 European Championship finals will be at stake when Czech Republic and Moldova square off against each other at Andruv stadion in the decider. Czech Republic came from behind to share the spoils with Poland, with Jaroslav Silhavi’s men kicking Robert Lewandowski out of the Euro 2024 race and they are only one point away from booking their spot at the next year’s showpiece tournament. Bayer Leverkusen attacker Patrik Schick remains in the recovery room, while his teammate Adam Hlozek is pushing for a start.
The Moldovans, on the other hand, face a must-win situation in Monday’s encounter as they are two points behind Czech Republic in the standings. Considering the visitors need to adopt an attack-minded approach this time out, we are positive that the hosts will seal the victory on the break. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Olomuc.
Highlighted Team (Czech Republic):
Czech Republic national team is the natural successor of the Czechoslovakia side that dominated world football during the 20th century, winning one European Championship trophy and coming second at 1934 and 1962 World Cups. After the separation of the country in 1992, Czech Republic continued the proud tradition by qualifying for each of the next six European Championship finals, losing to Germany in the final of the 1996 tournament.
The Czechs also reached the last eight at the 2012 finals, but their World Cup record of late is pretty disappointing. Since separating from Slovakia, Czech Republic only qualified for one of five World Cup finals. The 1996 generation, featuring players like Pavel Nedved, Karel Poborsky and Patrik Berger, will forever remained etched in the fans’ memory, while the likes of Milan Baros, Jan Koller, Petr Cech and Tomas Rosicky are some of the other notable footballers.
Highly rated goalkeeper Petr Cech is the team’s most capped player, whereas towering forward Jan Koller tops the goalscoring charts with 55 strikes in 91 games.
