Czech Republic vs England match analysis
Thanks to their superior goal differential, the Czechs simply need a draw against England to finish top of Group D. Having opened their campaign with a 2-0 win over Scotland in Glasgow, their 1-1 draw against Croatia was enough to take the ascendency in the group. Striker Patrik Schick has been the clear standout for the Czech Republic throughout their first two games, finding the back of the net on three occasions. Joraslav Silhavy’s side will prove hard to break down in defence, and a draw is certainly not out of the question.
Plenty of questions have been asked of Gareth Southgate and his England side following a stale 0-0 draw against arch-rivals Scotland in their last match. One of the pre-tournament favourites managed just one shot on target, seemingly lacking any firepower going forward despite having a plethora of attacking options. Harry Kane is clearly struggling for form, whilst it needs to be asked whether defensive midfielders Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips can play in the same side. When they do, it leaves the likes of Phil Foden playing out on a wing instead of a Jack Grealish or Jadon Sancho, both whom would be more suited to the position with their creative flair going forward.
Czech Republic vs England predictions & best bets
Half-time correct score: 0-0
England have been lacking a potent attacking option throughout Euro 2020, finding the back of the net on just one occasion in their first two games. They will be looking to walk away from Wembley with all three points, but we expect this game will go down to the wire with not much in the way of goals. Both of England’s games this tournament have been 0-0 at half-time, and that could well be the case again on Tuesday night.
Half-time score 0-0
Total goals: Under 1.5
The Czech Republic are far from an attacking team, and they will be more than happy to leave Wembley with a 0-0 draw to assure they finish atop Group D. With Harry Kane and the England attack struggling to find form, there is a good chance we won’t see more than one goal scored.
