World Cup 2018 qualification: Czech Republic vs Norway

On November 11th it is time for the last World Cup qualification match in 2018. It will be played in Prague and the match between Czech Republic and Norway will start at 20.45.

Czech Republic and Norway has ended up in a tough World Cup qualification group. By the time we write this article Czech Republic has played one match against Northern Ireland at home (which ended 0-0) and Norway has played one match at home against Germany (and lost 3-0). Norway has two easy matches coming up in October before the match against Czech Republic in Norway as they will play against Azerbaijan and San Marino. Now Azerbaijan isn’t an easy opponent, but if the Norwegians want hope to stay alive, then they will need a victory in both those matches.

Czech Republic would have wanted three points against Northern Ireland, but did not succeed with that. Their next match in October will be against Germany (in Germany) and then a match at home against Azerbaijan afterwards. A realistic goal in front of these matches is probably to get three points and a victory against Azerbaijan, but if they could get some points against Germany as well that would be great!

Czech Republic vs Norway on November 11th

If you want to be there and watch the match between the Czech Republic and Norway on November 11th, then you can buy tickets from Viagogo. Those are quite expensive tickets, so you can probably find cheaper tickets elsewhere. But, if you can’t find cheaper tickets elsewhere then you might want to use the website mentioned.

Most people consider the Czech team to be big favorites in front of this match. Norway has lost lots of matches lately and they are not at all as good as they once were. The Czech Republic did some great matches during the European Championship this summer, but unfortunately that was not enough to get to the play-off stage.

Watch Czech Republic vs Norway online

If you want to watch the match between Czech Republic and Norway online, then it can probably be done on the Czech TV channel CTV. They have free streams available online for those in the Czech Republic. If you are located outside the Czech Republic you can read more about watch CTV from abroad here. The match can also be seen on the Norwegian TV channel Dplay. That will require an extra subscription, but if you have a subscription and want to watch the match on Dplay in Norway from abroad, read this article.

Have a fantastic match and let us hope that the best team will win!

Cheer for Sparta Prague in the Europe League this autumn

Czech football is going strong and this autumn there are three teams from the Czech Republic in the Europe League. The most important team is of course Sparta Prague and we hope you will come to town to cheer for them on their game days.

Czech football is getting better and better, and even though the nation squad only managed to play 0-0 against Northern Ireland in their World Cup qualification opening match, we still have great faith in the club squads in Europe League. Here are the three groups in which Czech teams will play (source: watch-sports.org)

Sparta Prague in Europe League

Europe League Group H

  • Internazionale(ITA)
  • Sparta Praha(CZE)
  • Southampton(ENG)
  • H. Beer-Sheva(ISR)

Europe League Group J

  • Fiorentina(ITA)
  • PAOK(GRE)
  • Liberec(CZE)
  • Qarabağ(AZE)

Europe League Group E

  • Plzeň(CZE)
  • Roma(ITA)
  • Austria Wien(AUT)
  • Astra(ROU)

Are you happy now?

As you look on the teams which Sparta Praha will play against you probably noticed that Inter is one of their opponents. As a result one of the best Italian club teams throughout history will come to Prague this autumn to play against Sparta Praha, and we look especially much forward to that match. Here comes the full schedule presenting all the Europe League matches that will be played by Sparta Praha this autumn.

Sparta Praha Europe League schedule

  • September 15: Southampton vs Sparta Prague
  • September 29: Sparta Prague vs Inter
  • October 20: H. Beer-Sheva vs Sparta Prague
  • November 3: Sparta Prague vs H. Beer-Sheva
  • November 24: Sparta Prague vs Southampton
  • December 8: Inter vs Sparta Prague

The match against H. Beer-Sheva on November 3rd is probably the least interesting of the matches, while it will be very interesting to see how Sparta Prague will do against the Premier League squad Southampton on November 24th.

Did you know that you can watch all the Europe League matches on the Internet? If you can’t come to Prague to cheer for Sparta Prague, then that is for sure the best way to watch all your favorite teams. You can read more about watching the Europe League online right here.
