Germany will be looking to take a major step towards World Cup qualification when they take on the Czech Republic at the Eden Arena on Friday.

Five points clear at the top of Group C with six wins from six, the reigning champions are clear 47/100 (1.47) favourites with BetSafe to maintain their 100 per cent record in Prague.

Up against it to reach the play-offs as they sit four points adrift of second-placed Northern Ireland, Karel Jarolim's side are available at 123/20 (7.15) to give their chances an unlikely boost with a shock victory.

Two of the hosts' three qualification fixtures on home turf have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 7/2 (4.50) on them claiming a creditable point in this one.

While last October's 3-0 defeat against this opposition in Hamburg remains the Narodak's only loss of the campaign so far, their chances of making it to Russia have been largely undermined by their failure to turn those two home draws into wins.

Both of those results can be attributed to a lack of cutting edge in attack, with first Northern Ireland and then Azerbaijan happy to defend deep and leave with a point after goalless stalemates.

This is a familiar story for a team that has failed to find the net in three of their last four competitive matches in their own back yard, and six of whose nine goals in qualification have come against lowly San Marino.

It is hard to see that record improving when they take on Joachim Low's team, who have conceded just a single goal in their six qualification games so far.

With rising star Patrick Schick unfit to play despite completing a high-profile move to Roma last week, Jarolim certainly faces a tough task of breaking down such strong opposition with only Viktoria Plzen's Michal Krmencik and the uncapped Jan Kliment to choose from up front.

Instead, odds of 34/25 (2.36) seem far too good to pass up on Germany winning to nil for their sixth time in seven qualifiers, as well as a third consecutive encounter with the Czech Republic.
