Andorra vs Latvia
UEFA Nations League
Date: Monday, 19 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Estadi Nacional (Andorra la Vella).
Bottom two sides of Group 1 take on each other on Monday evening at Estadi Nacional in Andorra la Vella. Whereas the hosts were expected to struggle in this group, we have to say Latvia’s poor performances came as a big surprise.
The Wolves were expected to at least challenge one the first place past the likes of Georgia, Kazakhstan and Andorra, but they responded by claiming only two points in five games so far. It is indeed a poor record for Finnish manager Mixu Paatelainen who might lose thus job even before the EURO 2020 Qualification campaign kicks off.
Latvia did not keep a single clean sheet in last four games and they failed to deliver more than two in five matches since the start of the competition at the other end. The match with the weakest side in the group should give them a chance to improve such a dreadful record, but remember they failed to break the deadlock in the opening Matchday against Andorra at Daugavas Stadium in Riga.
Andorra vs Latvia: Head-to-head
The aforementioned goalless draw in Riga was Andorra’s maiden draw in sixth encounter against Latvia.
The Wolves dominated this match-up beforehand winning four on the bounce against Andorra.
These two sides featured the same World Cup Qualification group as Latvia notched wins both home and away (4-0 and 1-0).
Andorra only scored one goal in six meetings with the Wolves.
Andorra vs Latvia: Prediction
Koldo Alvarez’s side really struggle for goals and they are hardly expected to strike up front here against the struggling Latvia either. Andorra did claim two points so far in the group, but they scored only one goal along the way.
The team notched two goals in last 12 games in all competitions (counting friendlies). This is why Latvia’s clean sheet looks to be the best of betting options here. We will alternatively back the Under 2.5 goals bet as just two of past 11 games Latvia played saw fewer than three goals scored.
Andorra vs Latvia: Bet Tips
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2/5 (1.40)
Latvia to keep a clean sheet @ 1/1 (2.00).
