  • Tie Summary

    Argentina and Czech Republic have met on four previous occasions and the Czechs have the upper-hand, leading 3-1 in the head-to-head series. On their last outing, three years ago in Ostrava, Czech Republic triumphed in a tie that was decided in the fifth rubber.

    Two of their past meetings have been held in Buenos Aires - with each team posting one win apiece - although these were both before the new Parque Roca stadium was built, so this will be Czech Republic’s first visit to the venue that has become a fortress for the Argentine team, who are yet to be beaten there.

    Argentina are bidding to reach the Final for the second straight year after finishing runners-up to Spain in 2011. In fact, the Argentines have the unwanted record of reaching the most Finals - four - without winning the title. Martin Jaite’s team are through to the World Group semifinals after wins against Germany and Croatia.

    Czech Republic reached the Final themselves in 2009 - also losing to Spain - but unlike their opponents they have managed to lift the trophy once before, in 1980, when coincidentally they defeated Argentina in Buenos Aires en route. The Czechs have prevailed against Italy and Serbia to set up this meeting with Argentina.
