Our Prediction:

Lithuania will win

Czech Republic – Lithuania Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 05:00

Czech Republic host Lithuania at Mestsky stadion in Usti nad Labem in a friendly. Lithuanias displays on the road leave a lot to be desire and you should bear in mind that they failed to score in last six away matches away from home, speaking of friendly fixtures. Czech Republic are tough to beat at home and it has to be noted that they played out a 1-1 draw with Denmark in their last friendly game. Taking everything into account, we predict that the hosts will have a reason for celebration this time out. The Czechs will use Wednesdays football match as a good test for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against San Marino and a victory over Lithuania would definitely give Karel Jarolims team a confidence boost. Lithuania aim to bounce back from a heavy loss to Slovakia in their last qualifier, but grabbing something from Wednesdays clash against Czech Republic is easier said than done.

Six of Lithuanias last nine away games have seen fewer than three goals, whilst half of Czech Republics last ten at home have also been low scoring affairs, including three of their last four. This makes odds of 1/1 for Under 2.5 Goals look a good value bet, so Im backing that alongside a 1-0 win for Czech Republic at 4/1.

The three main strikers in the squad Milan Skoda, Patrik Schick and Michal Krmencik are relatively inexperienced at the international level and have so far managed 6 goals between them. Arguably, the Czech are a far superior side in terms of quality than their visitors. They are largely reliant on the midfield players to make up for the deficit. But the main head-ache for Karol Jarolim is the goal-scoring department.

This is by no means a bad return for a midfielder, but the fact their three names strikers have just six goals between them from 20 combined appearances is a worry. They have plenty of international experience, but midfielder Borek Dockal is the highest scorer in the squad with just six goals in his 29 appearances. This leaves them with a squad rather lacking in the quality department.

At the end of a match that was dominated both possession chapter, ct and opportunities report, Krmencik and Zmrhal scored winning goals in minutes 11 and 47. If in the first three rounds has not even managed to score any goals, Czech broke the ice in the last game, when the limit was imposed against Norway 2-1. With a new coach in charge, Karel Jarolim, who Mlada Boleslav on a previously prepared, the hosts have won only five points in World Cup qualifying campaign. After a disappointing campaign at Euro 2016 where he earned one point in Group D, the Czech national reconstruction began, but the results soon to follow. And that, provided the three of the four matches they have played at home.

Lithuanias last outing was a 4-0 defeat at Slovaki, but they have actually managed a fairly decent record in these World Cup qualifiers. They have beaten minnows Malta at home and picked up draws against both Slovenia and Scotland. In the build up to Euro 2016 they earned a goalless draw away to Poland as well, so they are definitely an improving side.
