  • Since becoming an independent nation, the Czech Republic have only qualified for one World Cup (the 2006 edition in Germany)
  • Germany have picked up seven clean sheets in their past nine games

Team news

Germany

Germany's Euro tournament was not as many had predicted. Although they made it through the group stages without losing, they did not dominate as expected, but started to pick up steam once they entered the knock-out rounds. However, despite finally getting over their Italian hoodoo, Joachim Low's men were unable to find a way past hosts France, who knocked them out at the semi-finals stage.

However, they have started their World Cup qualifying campaign off quite well, with a relatively straightforward win against Norway which saw Thomas Muller finally end his goalscoring drought for die Mannschaft. Germany are aiming to become the first team since Brazil did so in 1958 and 1962 to successfully defend their World Cup title when the 2018 edition takes place in Russia, but they will naturally face stiff competition to achieve this goal.

For this game, Mario Gotze is out injured, but Joachim Low can count on one of the strongest midfields in the business to come up with the goals. Alongside Muller, there's Mesut Ozil , Toni Kroos, and Julian Draxler, and all will represent some major threats to the Czech Republic's defense.

Czech Republic

Two notable absences for the Czech Republic will be Petr Cech and Tomas Rosicky. Both the star shot-stopper and the veteran midfielder have opted to hang up their boots after long spells with the national side. The visitors also did not fare well at this summer's Euro tournament, as they failed to win any of their group stage ties whilst picking up just one point in a 2-2 draw with Croatia. 

Karel Jarolim's side have won just one out of their past five games. In addition, they were quite disappointing in their World Cup qualifying opener against Northern Ireland, which finished as a very boring scoreless draw. Despite arguably being the stronger of the two sides, the Czechs were frustratingly wasteful in front of goal and missed countless opportunities to put the match to bed.

And given that they struggled against a team they should have been able to pick up a win against, they truly will face a tough task to get anything out of this tie with Germany - especially if die Mannschaft, who have won their past three meetings, are in top form.
