Czech Republic need at least a draw to give themselves any chance of making it to the Round of 16 of the tournament, but a win will guarantee them a place as one of the best third-placed teams in the six groups. Pavel Vrba's team have showed great spirit in both the games thus far and took a last gasp header for Spain to beat them in their first game, while they came back from two goals down to grab a point against the Croats.

Tomas Rosicky's absence, however, is likely to be a big blow for Vrba, he is their creator chief from midfield. Petr Cech's performance will be key if they are to make it to the next phase of the European Championships.

Turkey, on the other hand, have to win the game to have a chance of making it to the knockout phase after they lost their opening two games against Croatia and Spain, respectively. They were outclassed by the defending champions and Fatih Terim will hope that his team step up their performance against the Czechs.

The manager has five players who are in danger of missing the next game if they pick up a booking. However, their main concern will be to get to the next round rather than saving players in fear of the one-game suspension.

The Czech Republic lead the head-to-head between the two nations 5-3, but Turkey won the last time they met during the qualifying round for the 2016 European Championships.

What manager's say

Pavel Vrba (Czech Rep): "In theory we might only need a point, even though it is really just in theory. More likely we need to win so we will push more players forward and play more offensively. We will make an effort to control the match.

Most of our players already have big matches under their belts, mostly with their clubs but also in the European Qualifiers, so from that point of view I have no concerns about our players not being ready or aware of how much is at stake. They will be on top of it."

Fatih Terim (Turkey): "I have always said this is the "group of death" and what matters most is getting out of it. We have had a dip in form compared to the 16–17 games leading up to here. I hope we make up for it, but it is obvious that we have problems.

This will be an interesting game: both teams need a victory. It will be like a chess match. The Czech Republic are a resilient team. They came from 2-0 down to draw with Croatia and they could have held Spain too. You have to be wary of them.

Our motto is, "It's not over until we say it's over." Now it's time to deliver. Sometimes things do not go your way in football, but hopefully we can get out of this crisis and start talking about different things."
