Czech Republic – Israel Preview

  • With just one point separating the Czech Republic and Israel, and both needing to win their final two games in order to have any chance of promotion to League A of the UEFA Nations League (UNL), this game has the makings of a classic between two teams that have averaged the same number of goals (1.5 per match), and almost the same concession rate too (Czech Republic: 1.25; Israel: 1.5).
  • A 1-0 defeat in midweek extended the Czech Republic’s astounding 32-game run without a draw (W17, L15), but they bring a strong record of five wins from their last six competitive home games into this match. The last three victories saw the Czech Republic score after the 75th minute, which curiously, they’ve also done in two of the previous three H2Hs (W3 – at all venues).
  • With five of the hosts’ last six games being won by the team that scored first, as well as all three H2Hs, supporters may believe the first goalscorer will end up controlling this game. However only one of Israel’s last five matches has been won by the team that scored the opener, so the visitors could help foster a few twists and turns here.
  • In fact, whilst both teams scored in Israel’s last three UNL road trips stretching back into the 2018 edition (W1, D1, L1), with all three witnessing goals in both halves and two producing over 4.5 goals, the team that netted first never claimed three points.
  • Players to watch: Matěj Vydra scored the Czech Republic’s winning goal in the last H2H, and has now netted the second match goal in the last three internationals that he’s scored in. Eran Zahavi also scored in that H2H and netted a second-half hat-trick in Israel’s last away game.
  • Hot stat: Only three of Israel’s last 20 games were goalless at HT, as well as four of the Czech Republic’s previous 17.
