Czech Republic hosts Wales in round 7 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Friday, October 8th at Sinobo Stadium (Prague).
The national team of the Czech Republic is in 2nd place in the group standings (seven points after five rounds). It chalked up two victories, one draw, and two defeats. The Czechs performed well at Euro 2020, where they reached the quarterfinals. In the September matches of the World Cup qualification, Silhavy's men looked less confident. On September 2, the Czech Republic celebrated a difficult home victory over Belarus (1-0), and after 3 days, the Czechs lost to Belgium away (3-0). The last match was played on September 8, and the Czech Republic tied against Ukraine in Prague (1-1). In that friendly game, the Czechs escaped defeat thanks to a goal by Matej Vydra in the last seconds.
Wales is in 3rd place in the standings (seven points after four matches). The Dragons have two victories, one draw, and one defeat. They showed good results at the recent Euro, ending the fight in the 1/8 finals. In the September matches, the Welsh faced certain problems. On September 1, Page's men tied against Finland in a friendly match (0-0), and then they played two games in the 2022 World Cup qualification. In the match against Belarus in Kazan, Wales snatched victory only in the 93rd minute (3-2). And then the Dragons managed to lose points in the game against Estonia in front of their native stands (0-0).
The Belgians will not lose the leadership in Group E, so the match of the competitors for the 2nd line is of paramount importance. The tournament layouts are still on the side of Wales, which has a game in hand and defeated the Czechs at home. For the hosts, the upcoming game will be a “match of death” — in case of defeat in Prague, Silhavy’s men will significantly worsen their chances of getting to the 2022 World Cup. The statistics of home games speak in favor of the Czech Republic. In eight out of ten previous matches, the Reds were stronger than their opponents. Wales looked weak in the away games of the current qualification. The Dragons lost without a chance to Belgium (3-1) and had serious problems in the match against Belarus. We think that the hosts will manage to earn three points.
