European Qualifiers: Can the Czechs from Kosovo take something with them?
Kosovo is fighting for its first participation in a major international tournament. On Saturday the Czech Republic will be the favorite in the small Balkan nation. The home side has not lost for a long time, with the Czechs it is the first duel. We have analyzed both teams intensively in order to present you with an ideal match prediction for the match. The start of the game in Pristina is on Saturday at 15 o'clock.
13 games undefeated
5 wins from 8 games
nominally stronger squad
Will Kosovo remain unbeaten in the 14th game?
Kosovo has not yet suffered a defeat in this European Championship qualifier. The team of Swiss coach Bernard Challandes has played the first two games at home against Bulgaria and Montenegro 1-1. In the last matchday, the team even won 3-2 in Bulgaria. The Bremen Milot Rashica got the lead, which could turn the home side first. However, in the last half hour, Vedat Muriqi and Elbasan Rashani scored the goals for the visitors, thus securing Kosovo's first qualifying win. This left the Kosovars unbeaten in the 13th game under Challandes, with 8 wins and 5 draws. Kosovo is only trying for the second time to participate in a big tournament. From qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, the young state took only 1 point from 10 games. The team scored 3 goals, but on average it received 2.4 goals.
Things went better in the lowest category of the UEFA Nations League, held for the first time. There, the team ranked first in Azerbaijan, Faroe Islands and Malta, so that Kosovo may compete in the next edition in the league C. Here they conceded only 6 goals in 6 games, while the team was able to highlight 2.5 goals per game. In the qualifying group for Euro 2020, the small Balkan nation ranks third, 1 point behind Leader England and the next opponent. Despite the home advantage, the Kosovars are slightly outsiders against the Czechs, tip 1 raises a quota of 3.20. Under Challandes the team shoots 2.15 goals, while it only gets 0.61 goals - but so far against weaker opponents. Over 6 goals have been scored in 6 of their last 11 games, with both teams scoring goals in 7 of their last 8 games.
Will the Czech Republic win for the third time in a row?
The Czech Republic is hopefully in the second half of the European Championship qualification. The team of coach Jaroslav Silhavy is with 2 wins from 3 games equal points with England at the head of Group A. However, the British have completed a game less. At Wembley Stadium, there was a 0: 5 rebuff for the Central Europeans. The next two home games against Bulgaria could win 2-1 and against Montenegro 3-0. So the Czechs also go as a lightweight favorite in the away game in Kosovo, tip 2 is quoted at 2.40. Under Silhavy, the team has won 5 of 8 games, with 3 defeats. The Czechs have the more valuable squad than Kosovo, rumored 122 to 55 million euros. The balance of power between these two nations is also evident in view of the FIFA World Ranking list: the Central Europeans rank 43rd, the Southern Europeans 120th.
The Czechs want to qualify for the 7th time in a row since independence for a European Championship finals. In 1996 they became vice-European champion behind Germany, in 2004 it went to the semi-finals, 2012, after all, still in the quarterfinals. Since then, Czech football has bottomed out. Under Silhavy, the team scores an average of 1.25 goals while scoring 1.38 goals per game. In 5 of the 8 games fell over 2.5 goals, last 4 times in a row. The team was without a clean sheet three times, and twice they failed to score a goal. With it we can recommend both an over 2.5 goal bet and a bet with goals on both sides. The Czechs held their league title in the autumn in Nations League B, finishing second behind Ukraine but ahead of Slovakia with 2 wins and 2 defeats from 4 games.
Bet Tip and Forecast
According to our predictions, it will be tough for the Czech Republic in Kosovo, we predict that the home team will maintain the undefeated series. Very well quoted we see an over 2.5 goal bet, neat goals for both teams.
Our Bet Tip Prediction: Double Chance Bet 1 / X
For Kosovo and the Czech Republic, the upcoming duel is crucial in wrestling for a ticket to the Euro 2020. With England, the first place in the group without question, but the second rank is likely to be divided between these two nations.
The home side are still undefeated. With a draw and victory against Bulgaria and a draw in the ghost match against Montenegro in Podgorica, the Kosovar national team is quite successful.
In the latter draw, however, they played into the hands of the decision of some players with Serbian roots on the side of the opponent who did not compete. Even the Montenegrin coach Ljubisa Tumbakovic boycotted the match, for which the Serb lost his job a day later.
The background is that Serbia does not recognize the independence of Kosovo. At the moment, the guests from the Czech Republic take the coveted second place. The placement they owe two wins against Bulgaria and Montenegro. The fierce 0-5 opener at London's Wembley Stadium was well digested.
For the Czechs speaks also the personal situation of the hosts, because the Kosovo must give up his top striker Milot Rashica from SV Werder Bremen injury. A bitter loss, as the 23-year-old is enormously important for the offensive game of the national team. Read on to date two goals and a template in the qualification.
In the encounter between Kosovo and the Czech Republic, the tip still includes a hit on both sides. Even without Rashica, the Kosovars will have enough offensive power with legionnaires like Vedat Muriqi of Fenerbahce or Bersant Celina of Swansea City. In addition, the team will play offensively to beat the direct competitor in the home game as possible.
For their part, the Czechs have no less dangerous players like Patrik Schick. Parallel to Rashica at the Kosovars is also the 23-year-old attacker currently the largest offensive asset in the troupe of coach Jaroslav Šilhavý. Schick has already scored three goals in qualifying.
The fact that his footballing qualities have long been around, as proven by the recent loan from RB Leipzig - the league leaders in the Bundesliga. The Kosovo vs Czech Republic forecast is associated with a deployment of four units.
Kosovo - Statistics & Current Form
The blue-whites complete the first time a qualification for the European Championship. This is due to the short membership of Kosovo in UEFA. Only since May 2016, the Football Association of the country is an official member of the European umbrella organization.
The debut is satisfactory from the point of view of the Kosovars. After three rounds of play no defeat has been collected, with the heavier tasks still to come. In the match against the Czechs, Kosovo is also weakened due to the aforementioned cancellation by Milot Rashica.
How important he is for the Kosovar national team was made clear in his recent victory in Bulgaria when Rashica scored a goal and also prepared the winning goal in added time by Rashani. Furthermore, the midfielder Arber Zeneli can not participate.
In the 1-1 home win against Bulgaria last March, the 24-year-old from Stade Reims still contributed the decisive balance. With seven goals in 18 appearances, Zeneli on top is the top scorer in the admittedly recent history of the nation's national team.
Nevertheless, Dardanët can come up with some more powerful players in the upcoming match. One example is the championship champion Bansant Celina of Swansea City. The 22-year-old has scored in two of their most recent three league appearances for the Welsh club.
His achievements are an important piece of the puzzle, why the Swans have made a very good start to the season and currently occupy the top spot in the British lower house. Equally offensively strong is Vedat Muriqi of Fenerbahce. Like Celina, the 25-year-old attacker has two goals scored in the recent three appearances for the team from the Kadikoy district of Istanbul.
The fact that this is not just a snapshot is illustrated by his 17 goals in the past season for his former employer Caykur Rizespor - second-best value in this season's Süper Lig! Despite the failure of Rashica, the team of Swiss coach Bernard Challandes still has plenty of playful class.
Expected formation of Kosovo:
Muric - Voyvoda - Rrahmani - Kololli - Voca - Halimi - Zhegrova - Celina - Rashica - Muriqi

Czech Republic - Statistics & Current Form
The Czech selection started disastrously in qualifying: With 5: 0 could be the European Championship finalist from 1996 shoot at the same place in the Wembley Stadium of England.
However, the bankruptcy did not leave much uncertainty, as the following games against Bulgaria and Montenegro were victoriously won. On the offensive, the hopes are mainly on the initially mentioned Patrik Schick.
"I'll never forget the feeling of pride that came with entering the square and then singing the national anthem!"

The attacker has not shown his full potential in recent years. After moving from Sparta Prague to Sampdoria, the then-20-year-old took a full-time spot and scored eleven goals this season for the Genoese, but then numerous injuries struck him again and again.
In 2017 alone, he was injured half a dozen times. Meanwhile, his physical condition has stabilized. The 2-1 home win over Bulgaria Schick done more or less single-handedly with a double and in the following 3: 0 against Montenegro he contributed a hit.
In the match between Kosovo and the Czech Republic, the odds of scoring another goal are worth considering. Betway offers quotes at 3.40. However, Theodor Gebre Selassie will not run aground anymore. The 32-year-old defender of Werder Bremen announced his resignation from the national team last May.
Expected establishment of the Czech Republic:
Vaclik - Kaderabek - Celustka - Kalas - Suchy - Novak - Pavelka - Soucek - Jankto - Darida - Chic

Kosovo vs. Czech Republic Direct comparison
The match at the Fadil Vokrri Stadium in Pristina is a first between Kosovo and the Czech Republic. The odds for the first edition are very balanced.
Kosovo vs. Czech Republic Tip & Forecast - 07.09.2019
With Kosovo and the Czech Republic, two teams face each other on equal terms. Although the hosts have the home advantage, but some staffing problems. So Milot Rashica and Arber Zeneli can not accumulate.
If they want to finish in second place in the group, a victory has to be made, as the Czechs are currently one point ahead of the competition and, unlike the Kosovars, have already played a game against the dominant team of the England group.
For this reason, an offensive orientation is expected from the home side. Even without Rashica and Zeneli there are enough unerring players like Vedat Muriqi - last season's vice scorer of the Süper Lig - available. At the same time, there should be enough room for the guests to counter.
Key Facts - Kosovo vs. Czech Republic tip
Albania is without top striker Milot Rashica from Werder Bremen
The Czech Republic has always qualified for a European Championship
Kosovo has not lost at home since October 2017 (6-2-0)
With strikers like Patrick Schick, who has already scored three goals in qualifying, the Czech squad has players on board who can start with such opportunities. For the match between Kosovo and the Czech Republic, therefore, the tip for a goal on both sides is favored.
This is additionally supported by the respective vulnerable defenses. The hosts have not yet reached a clean sheet in the qualifiers and the Czechs are at least abroad often generous with respect to opposing goals: Only two of the youngest eight appearances ended without at least one goal by the hosts.
In addition, the 0-5 to the opening match against England has proved not only the well-known offensive strength of the British, but in parallel the vulnerability of the Czech defensive. After the resignation of Gebre Selassie she has to be rearranged on top of that. The provider William Hill can be found in Kosovo against the Czech Republic betting odds of 2.00 for our forecast.
At Fadil Vokkri in Pristina, the Kosovo team will meet with the Czech team. Two competing teams play for leaving the group from second place. An interesting fight awaits us.
I also like Kosovo from the League of Nations. I guided her through the group and was impressed. Yes, the competitors were not so hot, but still the team managed to leave the first place and continue to grow. What do you remember? Open game. The team scored a lot, preaching offensive football.
In principle, you can understand. For the 4-2-3-1 circuit that's quite an attack circuit. Coach Challand changes nothing in the tactics and why, if the team does not lose in the last 14 games in a row, it wins in 9 of them?
But there is a big but before this game. Several big players are injured at once and will not play with the Czech Republic. Rashik, Zeneli, Cololli, Shala and Kriezu. The first three are very significant losses in anticipation of such an opponent.
The Czechs started a devastating defeat in a group that England did not notice at a party. But the team quickly gathered and won the next two games. In addition, the team adds from game to game. With Bulgaria 2: 1 and the Montenegrins 3: 1 completely defeated. Shik is in good shape, has managed to score 3 goals and give a template.
Like most other teams, the Czech Republic played in LN, where it took second place and Ukraine continued. Basically they lost both games.
They play after the 4-2-3-1 scheme, as do the Kosovars. The Shilgavy is stable in his decision. As we know, the round of attack is very good for games where you have to play the second number to make a counterattack. No wonder that probably all the last 4 games of the team ended with TB.
Basically, we expect a game on equal terms, but Kosovo has not yet played with an opponent of this level. It was Denmark, but it was a commodity. The rest of the teams are much weaker than the Czechs. Therefore, such a win-win series for the "Golden Boys". Tomorrow will be difficult for the home team.
An interesting game awaits us, a fight of the direct competitors ... Given the style of both teams and the 4-2-3-1 / 4-2-3-1 mirror images, I wait here for goals first. The hosts will try to dictate their conditions and guests can play on the bar. Nevertheless, I expect a game in the opposite places.
Kosovo has personnel problems and Czech experiences should help them with such games. Kosovo lacks a class and therefore did not defeat Bulgaria, then X with Montenegro.
The Czech Republic gets stronger and scores a pair. I will give preference to the visiting team, who will certainly take away the full three points in a difficult game.
It is difficult to agree with sports analysts of betting companies that the Czech team is a favorite in the upcoming game. We try to find out why such an orientation in the painting of BK. In the Balkans, it is difficult for anyone to play with athletic footballers, and the factor of home advantage has been underestimated more than once by sports experts.
Since 2018, the national team of Kosovo has been led by a 68-year-old specialist from Switzerland, Bernard Schalland, who has redesigned the game's defensive system into a progressive 4-2-3-1 system, with numerous interpreters at his disposal. The focus of the attack in the national team matches is the 25-year-old striker Turkish Fenerbahce Vedat Muriji. The national team almost always collects a full 16 thousandth stadium, which drives its favorites into the attack. The national team has not lost a single game in this selection and takes with 5 points the third line in front of the Montenegrins and Bulgarians. The latter were repeated in the last game in Sofia with a score of 2-3. Czechs are direct competitors of Kosovo in second place in Group A.
Wards of Yaroslav Shilgava spent just one match away from the England team in that selection, losing well with a 5-0 result. The event did not cause as much criticism as after a major defeat by the Russian team, which dismissed almost the entire coaching staff , At home, the Czechs won two wins with the national teams of Bulgaria and Montenegro, with the latter defeated 3: 0. The national team plays after the 4-2-3-1 scheme with a 23-year-old striker of the German RB. In front is the Leipzig Patrick Schick.
Forecast and bet on the game
The Kosovars will have no other chance to overtake the Czechs, and they understand that very well. Fans expect a very interesting game at high speeds. We consider the 11th player, the stadium, as faultless, and the Kosovars will win. For the upcoming game, we offer a dependable bet on the line of BC "1X Bet" to win the home team with a positive Asian handicap.
Bet: Czech victory with handicap odds (+0.25) .168
We are offering a forecast for the European Championship qualifier, in which the Czech team will play in Kosovo on 7 September. What can one expect from the first game of the teams? - The answer lies in our material.
The Kosovo national team got off to a good start in qualifying for Euro 2020 and since 2017 the national team of this small country has not been defeated. In the qualification phase, the "Golden Boys" started in a game against Bulgaria (1-1) from the world, after they had just played an away game against Montenegro, and defeated the Bulgarian squad (3: 2) in the last away game against all predictions. In the League of Nations, the municipalities of Bernard Challand have increased their status in League C and won first place in the group with Azerbaijan and Malta.
The Czech team has performed only mediocre performances in the League of Nations. The result was that the team retained their place in Group B and finished second in the Company of Ukraine and Slovakia. At the beginning of qualifying, the Czechs had stronger teams than rivals today's rivals. In the first qualifier, the "locomotive" came to England (0: 5), but after such a knockout she stood up and won two wins - against Bulgaria (2-1) and Montenegro (3-0).
The Czech Republic has won 4 of their last 6 games
Kosovo has a series of 14 games without defeat
The opponents hold the first game in history
The Czech team has more experience and a higher status, but a walk in Kosovo will not be easy. We expect the maximum intensity of the fight in the middle of the field and the success of the visiting team, but we offer to play a combined bet with a probable draw.
We assume that the Czech Republic will not lose + TM (3.5) and will bet on it by BC Betcity with a coefficient of 1.81
