Faroe Islands vs Latvia
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.
