Nations League: Slovakia vs Czech


Slovakia and the Czech Republic are two neighboring countries that face off in the Tehelne Pole at the start of the new Nations League campaign. The two countries drawn into Group C Group B along with the Scottish and Israeli teams were both underestimated

Since Czechoslovakia disbanded into two separate countries in 1993, the two newly formed teams Slovakia and Czech Republik have met 11 times on the football field. The Czechs dominate with 7 wins, including their last 2 encounters, while Slovakia has won 3 wins, with only 1 out of 10 encounters ending without a winner. 3 out of the last 5 confrontations generated more than 2.5 goals, with 2 matches witnessed from both teams. Slovakia failed to take first place in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, but they were still able to reach the Euro final against Bosnia in the play-off qualifiers in the semi-final. Pavel Hapal's army is difficult to beat at home, but you should remember that number one goalkeeper Martin Dubravka (Newcastle United) has to be sidelined because an injury makes their defense more worried. Slovakia won 2-0 against away team Azerbaijan in their last match in November 2019. That victory ended their 3-match win streak and all 4 Slovak draws in 20 touches. The closest brow all ends with the same score 1-1. Only 2 of the last 7 matches of this country were won with 2 of the last 5 matches of Slovakia having more than 2.5 goals.

The Czech Republic did very well to secure their place in the Euro Finals as Jaroslav Silhavy's army is doing well to stay behind England in VL thereby taking second place in the group. In their last meeting in a competitive match, the Czech Republic beat Slovakia 1-0. Czech Republik lost to Bulgaria 0-1 in their last match 10 months ago. The Czech Republic has been unstable in the last 2 years, unable to score a series of matches longer than 2 consecutive victories, but also did not lose 2 consecutive matches. No draw has been scored in the last 26 games of this country and 4 of the last 5 matches of the Czech Republic have more than 2.5 goals, and 3 matches also saw goals in both teams.
