Czech Republic played in their first major tournament as a sovereign nation for Euro 1996, where they finished impressively as runners up. The team, though, was founded in 1901 and played as Bohemia, Austria-Hungary and Czechoslovakia before its separation in 1992. Jan Koller is the nation’s top goal scorer with 55 while Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is still the team captain. Cech, before signing for Arsenal in the 2015-16 season, plied his trade with Chelsea where he won the Champions League in 2012.
Currently ranked 24th in the world, the Czech Republic enjoyed its best international result, playing then as Czechoslovakia, in 1976 when they won the 1976 Euro Cup.
Czech Republic Next Game
Before you place your next bet have a look at who the Czech Republic plays next, where the game is being played and whether it’s a friendly or competitive match.
Friendlies are often more difficult to bet on due to the likelihood of teams trying out new formations and players. This could work in the Czech Republic’s benefit of they’re playing a superior opponent but, contrastingly, could have a negative effect on the team in games versus weaker sides.
Plan your bets advance by consistently referencing the Czech Republic’s game schedule. You may not know the betting lines in advance, but you’ll be one step ahead by planning for the future.
Find out if the team is playing away from home or in the comfort of Generali Arena in Prague, a stadium with a capacity of about 21,000.

Czech Republic Online Betting Tips
Czech Republic cruised through the Euro 2016 qualification round, winning Group A by two points over Iceland. They finished with seven wins, one draw and two losses during the qualifiers.
Surprisingly, the Czech’s played better away from home. Undefeated on the road, the Czech’s won four and drew one in hostile territory. In five away games, Czech Republic scored 12 goals and conceded 8. Their high goal tally is due to playing a few inferior teams, including Kazakhstan and Latvia. Nonetheless, they still had success in unfriendly environments.
At home the Czech’s won three, lost one and drew one and scored 19 goals, an astronomically high total. Once again, though, they showed their frailties on defense by conceding 14.
Czech Republic is in Group D, the infamous group of death. Matched up with Spain, Turkey and Croatia, we find it hard to believe the Czech’s will qualify for the knockout stage of Euro 2016.
We foresee many points being dropped in this group and recommend betting on a few ties. We think Croatia will take second in the group but recognise the fact that Turkey and Czech Republic are just as likely to qualify as group runner up. Few people are bold enough to bet against Spain as group winners.
