World Cup – Qualification: Germany vs Czech Republic

Germany vs Czech Republic Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second round in the qualifications for World Cup 2018, Germany host Czech Republic at the Imtech Arena. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Germany vs Czech Republic.


Germany started the qualifications for the World Cup 2018 with the victory over Norway 0-3 and they want to take another three points against Czech Republic. The match against Norway was their first official competition match after they have been eliminated against France 2-0 in the Semi-finals of EURO 2016. Home national team is the main favorites to reach the top of this group and qualify directly on World Cup 2018, so every other place in this group, except 1st position, would be a big surprise. Thomas Muller was amazing in the first round after he scored two goals and assisted for the 3rd goal. Without any doubt he could be the most dangerous player for visitors defence. Good news for their coach Joachim Löw is that Boateng and Gundogan are both returning in the team.

Czech Republic took only one point against Northern Ireland in the first round after the match was finished without goals. They dominated on that game, but they didn’t have the solutions in the attack and failed to score. The match against Germany is important for Czech Republic, but it will be very hard for them to avoid defeat. However, they have nothing to lose and they will try to stay unbeaten. Visitors were disappointing on the last EURO 2016 and finish the competition in the group phase. Czech Republic make some changes and has appointed Karel Jarolím as a new head coach instead of Pavel Vrba. Interesting fact is that visitors have managed to beat Germany away in the last two official matches for the qualification for EURO 2004 and EURO 2008, beating home side 0-3 and 1-2.

Team News

Home side miss Mario Gomez, Rudiger and Schurrle. On the other side, visitors will be without Darida, Skoda, Rosicky, Kadlec, Kolar and Necid.
