Latvia vs Andorra
UEFA Nations League
Date: Thursday, 6 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadions Daugava (Liepaja).
Latvia host Andorra for their UEFA Nations League clash on Thursday evening amid a somewhat unpredictable spell of form, having failed to pick up their spirits through 2018 friendlies – where they earned just one win in six outings, with three losses and two draws also on the records.
Wolves have been a tougher side to outclass in front of the home crowd and they’ll now hope to open the new competition with a strong display at Stadions Daugava, bouncing back from a 1-3 loss to Azerbaijan seen in early June after solid Baltic Cup performances against Estonia and Lithuania.
Andorra have, on the other hand, struggled to score goals in 2018 and although they’ve opened the year with a March win over Liechtenstein (0-1), we’ve seen underwhelming displays in a loss against Cape Verde Islands (on penalties after a goalless draw) and UAE (0-0 draw) in June and mid-August, respectively. They will now hope for an upset in Liepaja but Koldo Alvarez’s men can’t really boast great records against Latvia either!
Latvia vs Andorra: Head-to-head
- Latvia have bagged wins in all of the sides’ five head-to-head matchups.
- Wolves have outclassed the rivals in a 4-0 home win in October 2017 World Cup Qualifiers clash.
- Andorra have last found the net in a match against Latvia back in 1997, with Latvia keeping clean sheets in all clashes since!
Latvia vs Andorra: Prediction
We will now back Latvia to build on such records and outclass the rivals once again, going for them to win to Nil at 1/2 (1.50) odd – which now seems the best approach to the fixture.
The hosts have put on solid displays at home recently and this should prove another smooth win over the rivals, these are solid stats to back up our prediction.
At the same time, the Lativians will find plenty of motivation to score goals on the day with the crowd backing them. Thus, and we’ll now also back Latvia to score Over 1.5 goals at 5/8 (1.62).
We have seen them impress against Andorra last year and we now hope for the attacking line led by in-form Valerijs Sabala in great shape once again.
