Italy vs Czech Republic Prediction – Int. Friendly Games – 06/05

Italy vs Czech Republic prediction on June 05, 2021. Exactly 1 week before Euro 2021 kicks off, Italy has a friendly match with the Czech Republic with the goal of final review. This is a period of strong Italian revival while Czech football in recent years has not had any outstanding names. It is difficult to hope for a positive result for the Czech Republic in the upcoming trip to Tardini.

Italy Overview

Italy is considered to be the one who wakes up to the throne at EURO 2021. Since Mancini came to power, he has revolutionized both in terms of personnel and gameplay, and immediately revived the team. Passed the qualifying round by not being more convincing with 10 all-win matches, scoring 37 goals, and conceding only 4 times. 

Extremely solid in defense but still effective on the offensive front. 3 consecutive wins in the recent WC Qualifiers with a score of 2-0 1 again prove their strength. Italy needs to maintain a winning streak as well as excitement, but it will also preserve its forces when the tournament is near. Not surprised if 90 minutes ended with just enough score.

Czech Republic Overview

Czech Republic qualified for second place in Group A behind England and regularly participates in congresses. However, after the talented generation of Petr Cech and Rosicky, Czech football did not find a worthy successor. It is very clear in Euro 2016 that they were eliminated in the group stage with only 1 point, or lost 0-1 to Wales in the last WC qualifying round. 

The ability to attack is quite poor with 13 goals in the qualifying round. The Czech counter-attacking style relies heavily on the certainty of the defense, only conceding 4 times in the last 5 matches. It is difficult to hope for a surprise before Italy is too dominant, but with the goal of earning a Czech draw, it can be difficult for the home strikers.

Asian Bet – Italy vs Czech Republic prediction

The quality of the squad as well as the tradition of Italy is completely outstanding, this is also the period when confidence has returned under the guidance of Mancini. In the past 4 confrontations, the Italian team won 2 and did not lose once. The Czech Republic is not an opponent that can make it difficult for the blue shirt team.

The recent performance of the 2 is also quite opposite. Czech Republic has just lost 0-1 to Wales in the WC qualifying, the last 3 matches only 1 win against Estonia. On the other hand, Italy is extremely stable with 7 consecutive victories. Notably, the 2-0 victory over Poland also kept a clean sheet in that series of 7 matches. With such an overwhelming victory, an easy victory for Italy is a reliable choice.

The game is controlled by Italy as expected when the difference is quite clear. However, the solid play of the two teams is difficult to bring about a game with many goals, in fact, the last 7/9 matches of Italy did not have more than 2 goals. Along with the nature of checking the squad before the tournament, both will not want to spend a lot of effort in matches like this.
