Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Eden Arena in Prague when Czech Republic take on Germany in what is expected to be the most entertaining game of Friday’s program. Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Norway and San Marino, Czech Republic played out a 1-1 draw with the Norwegians in Oslo in their last qualifier and they are four points behind the play-offs place ahead of the visit of Germany. The Czechs are desperate to grab something from Friday’s football match against the World champions, but that is easier said than done. Joachim Low’s men have been producing scintillating performances in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and they aim to keep their 100% record in Group C intact. The Germans look unstoppable at the moment and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. Coach Joachim Low rested key players in a 7-0 win over San Marino, but we predict that he is going to field the best possible side against Czech Republic.
Highlighted Player (Cech):
Petr Cech is a veteran goalkeeper who plays for Premier League side Arsenal. The experienced goalkeeper used to play for Arsenal’s fierce rivals Chelsea in the past and many people were shocked when he signed a four-year contract with the Emirates Stadium outfit on 29 June, 2015. Petr Cech was always struggling with injuries, but one definitely marked his career. During the clash between Reading and Chelsea the Czech goalkeeper collided with Stephen Hunt and, as a result, he suffered a skull fracture. This is the reason he has been forced to wear a protective headgear ever since. Petr Cech won four Premier League trophies with Chelsea, while lifting four FA Cup titles. However, in 2012 Cech won the Champions League trophy with the Blues and that is considered the highlight of his career. Petr is married to Martina Dolejsova (now Cechova) and they have a son Darmian and a daughter Adela.
Highlighted Team (Germany):
Competing for major honours since 1900, Germany are now one of the leading national teams in the history of football, boasting no fewer than seven titles in their trophy cabinet. Oddly enough, die Mannschaft have won the four World Cups in regular intervals, having finished as champions in 1954, 1974, 1990 and 2014, while lifting European Championship trophies in 1972, 1980 and 1996. And having also lost seven major finals, it is fair to say that Germany have challenged for the trophy at almost every single major tournament since 1954. There have been too many world-class players to count that have represented Germany so far, but it is Lothar Matthaus who holds the record for most caps, having featured in 150 matches, whereas Miroslav Klose is the top goalscorer with 71 goals in 137 outings. Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Muller, Rudi Voller, Jurgen Klinsmann and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have all had important roles to play in the past, whereas the new generation has seen Philipp Lahm, Manuel Neuer, Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller strut their stuff on international stage.
