Our prediction for this match:
Czech Republic will be looking to finish the year in style when they take on Denmark in their final game in 2016. The Czechs participated at Euro 2016 finals, but they have been struggling ever since Tomas Rosicky decided to retire. Their next rivals Denmark have been having their ups and downs in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and we predict that the visitors will take Tuesday’s football match very seriously. The Danes rolled over Czech Republic in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers and it has to be noted that the likes of Cornelius, Kjaer and Zimling scored for the Nordic team back then. Denmark are more of a team than Czech Republic and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors this time out. A man to watch in the away team will be Christian Eriksen, but coach Age Hareide could use Tuesday’s friendly to test as many players as possible.
Highlighted Player (Tomas Vaclik):
Tomas Vaclik is the Czech Republic international goalkeeper who has been with FC Basel since 2014. Having begun his professional career in Vitkovice, the 27-year-old shot stopper also played for Viktoria Zizkov and Sparta Prague before he moved to Switzerland. At the beginning of his career Tomas Vaclik draw plenty of attention from all across Europe and has even signed a deal with Dutch side De Graafschap in 2011, which was later rescinded after Vaclik failed his medical and was forced to return to Prague. During two seasons with the Swiss giants FC Basel, Tomas Vaclik has managed to establish himself as a first-choice goalkeeper averaging 31 appearances per season. He played a massive role in his team’s back-to-back title challenges and has gone to extend his contract with Basel as a reward, a contract that will keep him with the Swiss club until 2021.
Highlighted Team (Denmark):
The Denmark national team participated at the World Cup finals on four occasions and they recorded their best result at the 1998 tournament. The Danes made it to the quarter-finals of the 1998 World Cup in France, but Brazil proved to be a big catch for the Nordic side. De Rod-Hvide did remarkably well to win the 1992 European Championship, but they were more than fortunate to qualify for the Euro finals. Denmark finished their qualifying campaign in second place in the group, but thanks to Yugoslavia’s exclusion from the competition, the team booked their place at the Euro 1992 finals. Denmark impressed at the tournament in Sweden, with the team outplaying Germany in the title game (2-0). Brothers Michael and Bryan Laudrup and goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel are regarded as Denmark’s most notable players. It has to be noted that Morten Olsen was in charge of the Danish national team from 2000 to 2015. The Danes play their home games at Telia Parken and the capacity of the venue is 38,065 (all-seater).
