South Korea National Football Team EmblemSouth Korea: Korea lost to Spain during the week 6-1, this was their first loss since the final of the Asian Cup back at the beginning of 2015. They had a perfect Round 2 World Cup group stage with 8 wins from 8.

Czech Republic National Team BadgeCzech Republic: The Czech Republic have played two friendly recently in preparation for Euro2016, beating Malta 6-0 and Russia 2-1. They topped their qualification group which included Turkey, Holland and Iceland. They’ll play Spain, Turkey and Croatia at the Euros.

Head-to-Head: The Czech Republic and South Korea have played twice, the Czech Republic won one (5-0 in 2001) and the other ended in a draw (2-2 in 1998).
South Korea also played Czechoslovakia twice many years ago losing both games.

Prediction: The Czech Republic will have home field advantage and slightly better form. They will however be looking to rotate some players and so might struggle a little as a team. Still we see the Czechs winning this one.
Score: 2-1
