Czech Republic take on the visitors Moldova in the round 10 match of group stage of UEFA Euro-2024 qualification. The match will be played on Monday, November 20th at Andruv stadion (Olomouc).
Czech Republic has once again managed to rise to the top of their qualifying group. "Lokomotiva" consistently faces challenges in World Cup qualifiers and failed to secure a spot in Qatar, losing in the playoff match. However, their performance in the Euros has been consistently good. In the previous continental championship, they reached the quarterfinals. This time, they needed to qualify for the new tournament, but without the hero of the previous campaign, Patrick Schick, who is consistently sidelined due to injury. Under the guidance of Silhavy, they suffered a defeat against the surprise team of the qualifiers, Albania, and dropped points against them (1-1 at home) and even in Moldova. However, they managed to defeat Poland in March. In November, they responded to conceding a goal in Warsaw by scoring one of their own, resulting in a draw. After this, with Lewandowski's squad having no chance of overtaking them, they secured their position.

Moldova national team has never been highly rated, usually taking points from neighbors like Ukraine but not playing constructive football and typically finishing last in their groups. However, under the guidance of Sergey Kleshchenko, they have produced several significant upsets. Apart from a loss to Albania, they managed to secure 4 points against the Faroe Islands, another underdog, and repeated this feat against Poland, turning a 0-2 deficit into a 3-2 victory. Additionally, they held the Czech Republic to a goalless draw at home in March. They started November with a home match against Albania and once again added to their points, securing a late draw.
In the Euro 2004 qualification cycle, the teams faced each other, with the Czech Republic winning comfortably - 2-0 and 5-0. Certainly, a draw would be enough for the hosts, but in such a home match, the Czechs should aim for a more decisive victory. Let's go with a handicap of "-1.5 goals."
Prediction for the match: Czech Republic to win with -1.5 handicap.
