Facts about Scotland and Czech Republic at Euro
If we consider head-to-head statistics, Scotland won their past three games against the Czech Republic. It is Scots longest winning streak against any other 23 countries participating in Euro 2020. However, it is their first meeting at any major tournament.
Today’s match will remark Scotland’s 11th appearance in the major tournaments, including Euros and World Cup.
Scotland’s first appearance in the Euro was in 1996. However, they never advanced to the second round.
Euro 2020 will be Czech Republic’s 10th appearance, and they have been participating in the Euro for the last 7 tournaments consecutively.
Czechoslovakia won their first Euro in 1976, which they won through the penalty. However, Scotland just won two matches at the Euro in 1992 and 1996.
Players to watch out for
John McGinn. Only player for Scotland who can make the difference for the country. With his 10 international goals, McGinn is the top scorer in the current Scotland squad. His vicious run covers the midfield and makes chances for goals.
Lukas Provod. Slavia Prague midfielder Lukas Provod will certainly look for a knock as he showed his power by scoring a goal that helped Prague knock Leicester out of the Europa League on February 26.
Ondrej Kudela. Although Kudela is one of the top-notch players for the Czech, unfortunately, he just got 10 match bans from UEFA for an incident with “Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara earlier this season.”
Czech Republic vs Scotland Euro 2020 Match Preview and Prediction
Scotland’s Euro 2020 appearance is very dramatic. Thanks to a back-to-back penalty shootout win over Israel and Serbia in the semifinal and final games of the playoff. But they appeared to be the outsiders to claim the top two positions in Group D.
On the other hand, Czech Republic will certainly have their eye for the top two positions to proceed to the second round. Therefore, the Czechs should not be looking for anything but a win. But it is difficult to predict Czech Republic’s performance as they have been very inconsistent lately.
Scotland’s head coach Clarke is getting all of his 26 players. So, he has nothing to worry about injury, but the coach has already decided on the starting XI. However, Midfielder John Fleck will not be in the starting lineup for sure as he tested positive for Covid-19 at the pre-tournament camp in Spain.
For the Czechs, the team will play without their goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka as he was ruled out due to injury. Tomas Koubek joined the team last Tuesday. But, there is a piece of bad news for the team, Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kudela will not be able to join any of the Euro 2020 matches, as he was banned for 10 matches by UEFA due to racially abusing Rangers’ Glen Kamara in a Europa League tie.
