Czech Republic vs England predictions

Moneyline pick

The group may be on the line on Tuesday when the Czech Republic face England at Wembley, but regardless of if these sides finish first or second, a brutally difficult match awaits. The first-place team out of this group will face the runner-up in Group F (France, Germany and Portugal) in the Round of 16, while the second-place team will get the winner of that same group in the quarterfinals, provided they make it.

So, you are unlikely to see desperation from either team to secure a win and the top spot in the group, with both teams happy just to progress. The Czech Republic's contentment was shown in their draw against Croatia, when neither side showed much of a threat at all going forward after the score was leveled at 1-1. 

England, similarly, have not opened themselves up to attack yet in the Euros. While it was still enough to get a goal and a win against Croatia, Scotland's ability to play through their high-press and a poor game from the midfield led to a brutal performance in their second group stage game. England won't suddenly turn into a high-flying, expansive attacking side, but they will not want a repeat of the Scotland performance ahead of the knockout stages.

One of the best teams in international soccer over the past few years, it's highly unlikely England have consecutive poor games. With progression secure, squad rotation may even lead to an attacking spark, with Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho, among others, yet to play a big part but more than capable of providing a spark.

PREDICTION: England (-150)

Over/Under pick

The final matchday of the group stage often sees slow-paced, low-scoring games run rampant, with most teams' Euro fate already sealed. Both England and the Czech Republic could rotate their squads in this game ahead of a knockout stage that both will likely be participants in. But really, regardless of the intensity with which either side plays, the Under is a safe play here.

England, even in a dominant performance against Croatia, were superb in midfield and pressing but didn't create many chances. Then, against Scotland, they were utterly lost going forward.

The Czech Republic's Euros will be remembered for the goal of the tournament, but that was a moment of brilliance in an otherwise fairly stagnant attack. The two goals on either side of Patrik Schick's halfway hit came from a poor Scotland turnover, then an awful penalty given against Croatia. 

The Czech Republic and England will get through this one in cruise control. 

PREDICTION: Under 2.5 (-150)
