What channel is Czech Republic v Wales World Cup qualifier on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news
Check out how to watch Czech Republic v Wales in a World Cup 2022 qualifier this week, including TV and live stream details, team news, predictions and odds.
Wales continue their hunt for a place at Qatar 2022 when World Cup qualifiers on TV return this weekend, starting with a clash against Czech Republic.
Five points from the last international break has put the Robert Page's men in a decent position. They sit second, behind Belgium, with little chance of catching the table-toppers but boast a solid shot at landing a play-off spot.
However, Wales' two draws in the last break came against Finland and Estonia, making life a little bit harder for Page.
Pressure has shifted to this much tougher affair with Czech Republic. Defeat for Wales would put them three points behind their opponents in Group E, though with a game in hand.
The Czechs were hammered by Belgium in a 3-0 defeat last time out in their World Cup qualifying campaign, while they were also defeated by Wales in their reverse fixture after star man Patrik Schick was sent off.

Our prediction: Czech Republic v Wales
On paper, this one leans in favour of the Czechs despite their less-than stellar campaign so far.
They performed superbly at Euro 2020 to reach the quarter-finals and boast star quality throughout the spine of the team in the shape of Schick and West Ham duo Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal.
On home soil, with a strong incentive to win the game, Czech Republic should be able to fend off a relatively toothless Wales side who failed to score against far lesser opponents.
Our prediction: Czech Republic 1-0 Wales (9/2 at bet365).
