We are just on the eve of the start of these European 2021 and there are teams that give the feeling of suffering from stress. This is the case, for example, of the Czech Republic, which is struggling to get into this stage of preparation. And considering that the group in which it happened is not so easy, Pavel Nedved's grandchildren would do well to wake up from torpor.
Let's see if the match against an opponent as malleable but not too much like Albania, gives the Czechs a bit of confidence in view of their debut at Euro 2021 scheduled for June 14 against another decidedly difficult opponent like Scotland.
At least one of the two keepers has emerged with a clean sheet from 12 of the most recent 17 Czech Republic matches on their own patch in the Friendly International, so thrills and spills have been few and far between. Given that seven of the previous ten Albania away games at this level have followed the same pattern, any deviation from this script would come as a shock.
Czech Republic have not been involved in too many thrillers recently, with seven of their previous nine Friendly International matches producing a maximum of two goals. This has also been the case in 13 of the last 18 Albania away games at the top table of the Friendly International, so defences should be on top when the two teams lock horns with one another.
