Czech Republic – Ukraine Match Prediction | 13-09-2019 08:00

Their form in the last ten games is quite similar. In the first game, the Czechs defeated Ukraine 4:0. This will be a tight game and its likely to be a draw. That was the second ever match they played against each other. The Czechs have managed to get 6 wins and were defeated 4 times, while the Ukrainians also got 6 wins, but only two defeats and two draws. Last time Ukraine played the Czechs was 6 years ago when the game finished a goalless draw. They both kept three clean sheets and both failed to score on three occasions. Key players ahead of the clash at the Miroslav Valenty stadium in Uhersk Hradit will be Michael Krmencik and Vladimir Darida for the Czech Republic and Andriy Yarmolenko and Yevhen Konoplyanka for Ukraine. Neither team was a contestant in this years World Cup so the players will look forward to some official national team games.

That streak was comprised of a 4-1 friendly defeat of Albania, with Yevgeni Konoplyanka and Andriy Yarmolenko both scoring twice, while Konopylanka netted again against the Czech Republic. Ukraine are unbeaten in 2018 and have won three of their last five matches. The draw with Italy in a friendly, thanks to Ruslan Malinovskiys equaliser, stretched that unbeaten run but did ended a three-match winning streak. They then backed that up by beating Slovakia thanks to Yarmolenkos penalty to ensure they top the group after two games. That looked to be enough for a point in Prague, but Oleksandr Zinchenko made it even better with a stoppage-time winner.

Zbirna have only once played at the World Cup finals so far, and they did really well to reach the quarter-finals in 2006, while they co-hosted the Euro 2012 with Poland, albeit failing to get past the group stage. After the country had gained independence from the Soviet Union, Ukraine played their first international match in 1992, and they have come a long way since.

Andriy Yarmolemko Scored the winner from the penalty spot against Slovakia, having previously netted twice in the win against Albania.Oleksandr Zinchenko Ukraines last-minute winner when they last met the Czech Republic, and has proved his worth at Manchester City this season after opting to turn down a move away.Yevgeni Konoplyanka The other goalscorer in the reverse fixture, having also netted twice alongside Yarmolenko in that defeat of Albania.

Highlighted Player (Vladimir Darida):

Czech Republic quickly bounced back from a heavy 5-1 loss to Russia in a friendly, but they do not want to stop now. Ukraine will be aiming to keep their 100% record in Group 1 intact when they host Czech Republic at Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist. The Ukrainians aim to cement top position in the standings, but the Czechs should not be written off just yet. However, seeing that Ukraine have been producing thrilling performances in the UEFA Nations League, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Tuesdays football match. Jaroslav Slihavys troops did well to beat their neighbours Slovakia on the road in their second group game, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. You should bear in mind that the two teams played out a goalless draw in their last meeting in Ukraine.

The 1996 generation, featuring players like Pavel Nedved, Karel Poborsky and Patrik Berger, will forever remained etched in the fans memory, while the likes of Milan Baros, Jan Koller, Petr Cech and Tomas Rosicky are some of the other notable footballers. Since separating from Slovakia, Czech Republic only qualified for one of five World Cup finals. The Czechs also reached the last eight at the 2012 finals, but their World Cup record of late is pretty disappointing.

They won 2-1 on Saturday, and that shock victory has made them the main challengers to Ukraine. The visitors had an alarming September, losing at home to Ukraine and away to Russia. Another away win would be huge for the visitors, but can they keep up that momentum? Those defeats dented confidence in a side which is going through a tough transition, but things did turn around their meeting with Slovakia.

That was a solid result for Andriy Shevchenko in the country where he spent much of his playing career. However, the competitive action is the main focus this month, especially after their great start in the Nations League has set them up for a promotion push. The hosts were in friendly action last week, drawing 1-1 with Italy away from home. They made the last Euros in 2016, and their aim will be to repeat that trick after missing out on the World Cup in Russia.
