Faroe Islands vs Latvia: Preview and Predictions

Faroe Islands vs Latvia
International Friendlies
Date: Thursday, 22 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Marbella Football Center – Sur 1 (San Pedro de Alcantara).

Faroe Islands have shockingly ended their WC Qualification campaign at fourth position beating Latvia by two points after ten rounds. These two sides are just about to lock horns once again, this time in a friendly on the Spanish soil where the Eastern-European side will be hoping to fix the horrendous impression from the mentioned campaign and grab two wins in following friendlies ahead of the Baltic Cup this summer.

Latvia were in action just a month ago when they’ve shown a decent resistance in a narrow 1-0 loss to Korea Republic (also a friendly). Given that the team is about to face the likes of Gibraltar in five days, two wins in the following two ties is anything but a mission impossible for Aleksandrs Starkovs and his men.

The main problem for the Latvians was keeping things tight at the back since the team has shipped 18 goals in the qualifying campaign. Just to compare, they’ve scored three goals more than Faroe Islands who have ended up above them in the Group B standings.

The nominal hosts have been pretty tough to break down in the finish of the qualifications allowing juts a single goal in last three games against Andorra, Latvia and Hungary.

Faroe Islands vs Latvia: Head-to-head

As mentioned above, the two sides have locked horns in the same WC Qualification group.

Latvia have not scored a single goal in two meetings with Faroe Islands.

Faroese side has clinched a shocking 0-2 victory on the Latvian soil in their first ever head to head clash back in October 2016, while the reverse fixture saw no winner in a goalless draw one year later.

Faroe Islands vs Latvia: Prediction

We expect a very close match similar to the one they’ve played in October last year and we’d not be surprised to witness another goalless draw.

The bet you can hardly make a mistake with is Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.65, while the braver tipsters can try with the draw at 3.30.
