Czech Republic will be without star man Petr Cech for their Euro 2012 qualifier against Scotland tomorrow, boosting the chances of victory for Craig Levein’s team.
The Chelsea goalkeeper is a key player for club and country and his absence through injury will weaken Czech Republic’s resistance.
One of Jaroslav Drobny and Jan Lastuvka will take Cech’s place but with the two potential shot-stoppers short of international experience Scotland will be looking to take advantage.
Drobny has just three caps and Lastuvka is yet to make his Czech Republic debut.
Already 37/100 to score in the game, with Scotland having scored at least two goals in each of their last three outings on home soil, 7/4 on Levein’s men to bag two or more goals look tempting.
Aside from Cech, Czech Republic coach Michal Bilek has all of his major players available, with familiar names including Arsenal’s Tomas Rosicky and former Liverpool striker Milan Baros.
Levein is also operating at near full-strength, with only the injured Craig Gordon and self-imposed exile Steven Fletcher missing from the squad.
However, doubts remain about the participation of captain Darren Fletcher, with the Manchester United star yet to taste first-team action this season following a viral infection.
Although tipped to start despite a potential lack of match fitness, Fletcher is confident that the squad is now good enough to cover the absences of key players, calling it the strongest he has been involved in during his time with the national team.
Scotland head into the match as 3/2 favourites to pick up all three points, with a Czech Republic win priced at 37/20 and a draw at 21/10.
