Faroe Islands vs Latvia
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 10th October 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Torsvollur Stadium, Torshavn.
Surprisingly, Faroe Islands have become one of the main candidates to win UEFA Nations League Division D this season. They have opened the new campaign with two narrow victories, sitting lonely at the top of the table.
The main contender for that spot Latvia is coming at Torsvollur Stadium at Torshavn this Saturday, hunting for a win and a chance to make things more complicated.
Still, hosts are warm favorites for the win currently priced at 2.30 odds, while chances Latvia to win their first away game since 2016 are slightly lower at 3.50.
Faroe Islands vs Latvia Head-to-head
These two teams have met in only three occasions so far. Latvian fans are still waiting for the first win against Faroe Islands, losing one game while two of them ended without a winner. The most recent meeting was in 2018 as a friendly duel, ending in a 1-1 draw. Faroe Islands defeated Latvia in EURO 2016 Qualifiers 2-0 FT. It is also worth adding that all encounters so far ended Under 2.5 FT.
Faroe Islands vs Latvia Prediction
It’s been a while since Faroe Islands had such decent results on the international scene.
The team has won three out of the last five outings, losing two to Norway and Spain which was expected. They obviously battled really well against teams with similar quality. Their UEFA Nations League campaign started with a great match and 3-2 home victory against Malta.
Interestingly, Faroans were down by one goal all until the 87th minute when Andreas Olsen and Brandur Olsen completely turned things around and secured three important points. The follow up match against Andorra was rough as well, eventually winning it 1-0.
Latvia’s quality diminished hard in the last couple of years. It’s been a while since this squad did anything positive in qualifying cycles but some of the recent results are not that bad, featuring 1-0 win against Austria and draws against Malta and Andorra. We feel that draw is the most realistic outcome here.
