The 2018 FIFA World Cup is almost upon us, and that’s reason enough to be excited. The global spectacular is set to kick off in two weeks time, and while you’d expect both of these teams to be heading for Russia, the Australians are the only ones who will be involved in the tournament this summer. Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy a competitive game between these two nations, with all signs pointing towards a fun encounter tomorrow night.

Czech Republic

Czech Republic are the original ‘Belgium’, and by that, we mean that they were initially tipped to become the next big force in European football. They may not have possessed a golden generation so to speak, but they were always on the verge of breaking through to that next level. Now, a decade later, they continue to struggle when it comes to finding consistency. As they look ahead to this game, they’ll want to make a real statement against Australia as they try and prove their own value.

Team News

Vladimir Darida will be looking to lead the way for a Czech side devoid of star power.

Australia

Australia were the definition of a country who struggled to make it to the World Cup and given the quality in their region, that shouldn’t be seen as acceptable. At one point they were even struggling to get past Syria, and when you consider that they’ll be going up against France, Denmark and Peru, it quickly becomes obvious that they need a minor miracle if they want to get out of the group. Still, they’ve got heart, which could wind up taking them a long way if they can build up some momentum.

Team News

Dimitri Petratos, James Troisi, Massimo Luongo and Jackson Irvine are a handful of names who are expected to be given a chance to shine tomorrow night.

Factors to Consider

  • Australia are currently preparing for the World Cup, but Czech Republic failed to qualify.
  • Czech Republic have won four straight games, including a win over Iceland.
  • Australia only have one win in their last five games against Thailand.
  • Czech Republic haven’t played since November 2017, whereas Australia have already played twice in 2018.
  • In their one encounter back in 2000, Czech Republic beat Australia 3-1.

Conclusion

While Australia may be the side heading to Russia this summer, it feels like the Czech Republic are already putting the necessary pieces in place to improve in time for Euro 2020. With that in mind, we’re backing them to run through Australia with a 3-1 victory.
