Given that they are the favourite with the bookmakers to win the rescheduled Euro, England will be expected to prevail in Group D and as such they are warmly fancied to defeat the Czech Republic in this final match at Wembley Stadium.
However, fans of head-to-head stats in their betting will have already noted that the Czechs actually beat England in a qualification match for this very tournament – will that have an impact upon this game too?
Of course, these things are all relative, and it should be noted that in the return fixture England demolished the Czech Republic 5-0 at Wembley!
This will be an interesting match to watch unfold then, and making England vs Czech Republic predictions will have difficulties because of what has happened between the two teams in the past couple of years.
With England priced as short as 6.00 to win Euro 2020, you won’t be surprised to learn that they are a warm favourite to win here too.
And the Czech Republic vs England betting odds, which will be up slightly closer to the tournament, will favourite the Three Lions as well, but it is very important to not to underestimate the underdog.
2. Czech Republic v England Preview
There is a feeling that this could be England’s best chance of winning a major competition, given that they will play all of their group games – and potentially the semi-final and final – on home soil at Wembley Stadium. This Czech Republic vs England preview will not lose sight of the fact that the Three Lions could lift the trophy after the situation in the world will be under control.
When we play again as an England team, it will be at a time when not only our country but the rest of the world as well is on the road to recovery. Hopefully we will be closer to each other than ever, and ready for the beautiful distraction that football can bring. - Gareth Southgate for the FA
This is a quality squad of players that have been well marshalled by head coach Gareth Southgate, and after reaching the World Cup semi-final – and going deep into the Nations League – there is a sense they are knocking on the door of a huge win.
They have such attacking quality that they blasted 37 goals in qualifying, and the emergence of Jaden Sancho as a major force has been a fantastic bonus for Southgate. This young talent will link up with the likes of Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford in what is a forward line packed with pace and guile.
There are some question marks about them defensively, however, with the goalkeeper position still very much up for grabs and a clear absence of world-class defenders.
This is an area that the Czech Republic will have to exploit if they are to get anything from this game, and interestingly in their qualification campaign they scored two or more goals in five of their eight games – so there is some quality there.
Patrik Schick, their frontman, will be relied upon to deliver goals, and the only concern is that the midfielders in this Czech Republic squad are hard working and functional, rather than creative types. Will they be able to supply Schick with the chances he craves?
Remember, the Czechs did beat England 2-1 in qualification, so there is evidence to suggest that they can compete, but the 0-5 defeat at Wembley is hard to ignore.

And then when we consider the 1-X-2 market, it really is difficult to see past England. They have the obvious benefit of playing on home soil, which will make a huge difference, but they also possess the quality to go all the way in the competition – let alone seeing off a functional but fairly ordinary Czech Republic outfit.
