Czech Republic hosts Germany in a match for this stage of the WC Qualification Europe. The Czech Republic is not exactly eliminated, after all, they are four points behind second-placed Northern Ireland and there are four matches left, but realistically, their chances are very slim. They will not have several important players for this game as Patrik Schick, Milan Skoda and Tomas Sivok were not included in the squad. Also, if we consider they have to face Northern Ireland next week – in, probably, the crucial game for them, then we cannot rule out the chance of Czech Rep trying to reach World Cup against N. Ireland the more important one. On the other side is Germany, team, which has a flawless season in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, having won every game they’ve played so far, has a 5-point lead over second place Northern Ireland and now seek to secure their qualification. However, their defender Jerome Boateng is unavailable due to injury, Shkodran Mustafi, Benedikt Howedes, Leroy Sane and Sami Khedira are out as well. Manuel Neuer has not been called up even though he recovered from his injury. This won’t be a big problem for Germany as they won Confederations Cup with an alternative team. To conclude, the Czech Republic is tough playing at home and they will try to make things complicated for the current World Cup champions. But Germany will be too much to handle for a very inexperienced Czech side. In addition, Germany scored incredible 27 and conceded only 1 in their 6 matches, while the Czech Republic has a hard time scoring a goal.
