Betting tips Czech Republic vs Spain

Having impressed at last summer´s European Championships, the hosts have endured a tough year having failed to qualify for the upcoming World Cup and they enter this contest having won 3 of their last 8 competitive fixtures including Thursday´s win against Switzerland.

Spain arrives in Praha in good form although they will be frustrated to have conceded that late leveller against the Portuguese in Sevilla however, having secured their place at Qatar in November, will be looking to establish further continuity in both performance and team selection.

Spain picked up a somewhat disappointing draw against neighbours Portugal on Thursday and while they are odds on favourites to claim the spoils here, their away form suggests both teams can score with only 3 clean sheets in their last 14 away matches 

Indeed, while the Czechs have struggled to replicate their form of last summer, they remain a strong side at home and have not failed to score in any of their last 23 matches on home soil since a 0:0 draw with Azerbaijan in 2016.

At the time of writing, BTTS is on offer at 2.0 odds and seems to represent the value with Spain a little short at just 1.66 odds to claim the victory. 

Ultimately, you would expect Spain´s greater quality to prove decisive here but given the Czech´s ability to score at home, and Spain´s less than stellar defensive record, we expect both teams to hit the target in what should prove an entertaining contest at the Sinobo Stadium.
