England v Czech Rep Euro 2020 Qualifying Betting Guide: Friday 22nd March 2019

England v Czech Republic 19:45

We get going with the first Euro 2020 Qualifying games this weekend and England get their campaign going with a home clash against Czech Republic.

The Three Lions are as short as 1.28 in the match betting market, with the draw 5.00 and Czech Republic on offer at 11.00.

The sides have only played twice before with one England win and a draw, with the last of those coming back in 2008 (2-2 draw).

The FIFA Rankings, with England 5th in the world and Czech Republic 44th suggest this should be a straight-forward task for Gareth Southgate’s men.

England captain – Harry Kane – who has netted 20 goals for his country will be popular at 3.40 (1st) or 1.72 (anytime), while other names to note for the home side are Marcus Rashford (5.50 – 1st, 2.50 – anytime) and Raheem Sterling (6.00 -1st, 2.62 – anytime).

England head into the game unbeaten from their last 5, while with the Czech Republic having won their last two games 1-0 and the fact they’ve won 4 of their last 5 matches, then they can’t be totally ruled out.

The Three Lions have been in decent scoring form of late too – with their last three games all going OVER 2.5 GOALS, so this might appeal at 2.00.

However, with the visitors sure make like hard for England then even though we expect three points to go to the Three Lions here, the safer call might be to side with their captain – HARRY KANE – scoring in the match at 1.72 – something he managed in the last England win (2-1) over Croatia.

BEST BET: HARRY KANE TO SCORE ANYTIME @1.72
