Czech Republic and Scotland meet again

Scotland will be hoping for at least a repeat of the 1-0 win they gained against the Czech Republic in a friendly earlier this year when the countries reconvene for a Group I qualifier in Prague.

The Czech Republic and Scotland will meet for the second time this year – but this time with plenty at stake – after being drawn together in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group I.

Match background
• The Czech Republic and Czechoslovakia's record in 13 games against Scotland reads W7 D0 L6 (W5 D0 L1 at home).

• The Czechs' only home defeat against Scotland dates back to their first meeting in Prague on 15 May 1937, when the visitors secured a 3-1 friendly success.

• The two nations got a good look at each other on 3 March this year in what was Craig Levein's first match as Scotland manager; Scott Brown registered the only goal of the fixture somewhat against the run of play at Hampden Park.

• That victory ended a run of three straight defeats for Scotland against the Czech Republic and represented their first against their rivals since the dissolution of Czechoslovakia.

• Perhaps the most unusual game between Czechoslovakia and Scotland came in qualifying for the 1962 FIFA World Cup. The teams finished level on points at the top of Group 8 and needed a play-off on neutral territory to decide who would advance to the finals in Chile. In the end, the Czechs prevailed 4-2 in extra-time following a 2-2 draw in Brussels.
