Switzerland v Czech Republic: UEFA Nations League - League Path Group 2
Czech Republic take on Malta in a friendly on Friday

Czech Republic continue their preparations for the 2024 European Championship when they take on Malta in a friendly at the Untersberg-Arena on Friday. Michele Marcolini’s men will head into the weekend desperate to get one over the hosts, having failed to win any of their last 10 encounters since September 1994.

Czech Republic maintained their fine run of results as they fought back from behind to claim a 2-1 victory over Armenia in a friendly on March 26.

Ivan Hasek’s side have picked up five wins and one draw in their last six matches across all competitions — a run which has seen them book their spot in the upcoming European Championship.

Czech Republic have been drawn in Group F of the Euro 2024, alongside Turkey, Georgia and 2016 winners Portugal.

Malta, on the other hand, were involved in a share of the spoils for a second consecutive game as they played out a goalless draw with Belarus.

Marcolini’s men have now failed to win their last six games in all competitions, losing their final six matches in the Euro qualifiers before playing out consecutive stalemates against Slovenia and Belarus.

Next up for Malta is the daunting challenge of taking on an opposing side they have failed to get the better of in their 10 encounters since 1994.
