Team news

John Fleck will be available to Steve Clarke once more after testing positive for coronavirus. As of yet, there are no injury concerns for the Scotland boss and the entire squad returned negative Covid tests.

Czech Republic are also at full strength following their recent win over Albania. Tomas Kalas, Ondrej Celustka and Tomas Soucek all came through the match unscathed.

Previous meetings

This will be the tenth time the countries face one another. They have both won on four occasions with one draw.

Scotland have not lost to the Czechs since 2010 and the infamous 4-6-0 under Craig Levein in qualifying for Euro 2012. Roman Hubnik scored the only goal of the game. There was also heartache in the Hampden Park fixture with the visitors earning a 2-2 draw thanks to a stoppage time penalty.

Since then, it's been three wins on the bounce for Scotland.

Last match

The pair met in the recent Nations League. Back in October, Scotland won 1-0 thanks to a Ryan Fraser goal.
