Gibraltar vs Latvia: Preview and Predictions

Gibraltar vs Latvia
International Friendlies
Date: Sunday, 25 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Victoria Stadium (Gibraltar).

Latvia will finally have the opportunity to end the horrific run of results and boost up their confidence with a commanding victory on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Gibraltar to take on arguably continent’s weakest side in an international friendly. Latvia have somehow managed to clinch seven points in their respective WC Qualification group, but it has still been a disappointing return for the team led by Aleksandrs Starkovs given that the opposition included the likes of Faroe Islands and Andorra.

The Eastern European country has thus ended fifth with a two-point deficit behind Faroe Islands which has been regarded as a failure in the national media. To make things worse, Latvia have been struggling badly for results in following friendlies back in November when they lost to both Saudi Arabia (2-0) and Kosovo (4-3). The NON-FIFA friendly against Korea Republic did not bring much joy for the football fans in Latvia since their national side lost 1-0 in February this year.

This dreadful trend should really come to an end on Sunday when the Latvians play Gibraltar who have lost 12 matches on the bounce. Jeff Wood’s men have ended the qualifying campaign without a single point won (3-47 goal difference). Moreover, Gibraltar have conceded four or more goals in each of last four games and they’ve scored just twice in last nine affairs.

Gibraltar vs Latvia: Head-to-head

This will be the second head to head encounter between Gibraltar and Latvia.

Latvia have picked up a demolishing 0-5 victory when the two teams met in March 2016 (also at Victoria Stadium).

Gibraltar vs Latvia: Prediction

The gulf in quality between Gibraltar and most of teams in Europe is just enormous and we expect Latvia to clinch a commanding victory similar to the one from March 2016 when the two sides have played their lone previous H2H encounter.

The main betting option is Latvia to win by three or more goals, while you can alternatively try with Over 3.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.60.
