Latvia vs Andorra
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group B)
Date: Tuesday, 10th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Skonto stadions (Riga).
Latvians will want to forger this qualifying term as soon as they sit at the very foot of the Group B standings with no more than three points from eight matches.
The humiliation is grater if we know that Sarkanbaltsarkanie sit behind the likes of Faroe Islands and Andorra.
In order to change this and at least try and avoid the rock-bottom, Latvians need to pick up three points in the last match of the campaign, set to be played on Tuesday evening at Stadions Skonto against Andorra.
Latvia took a narrow 0-1 victory (just over Andorra) on the opening day, but they lost seven following outings including n embarrassing 0-2 defeat to Faroe Islands on the home soil.
The team scored no more than three goals in the entire campaign and they conceded at least three in four of their last five matches.
Tricolors are, interestingly, not the team with the weakest defense in the group which is something you don’t get to witness quite often.
Andorra have actually been pretty tough to break down lately as they allowed only five goals in last six matches in all competitions.
The good run includes the home win over Hungary (1-0) and a 1-0 defeat to Faroe Islands on the road in their previous fixture.
Latvia vs Andorra: Head to head
Latvia have been dominant in previous head to head meetings with Andorra who scored no more than a single goal in four matches with the Latvians.
However, the times have changed as Andorra only suffered a narrow 0-1 defeat on the opening day of this qualifying term to Latvia (Valerijs Sabala’s goal) as they were the better side on the court.
Latvia vs Andorra: Prediction
Latvia have been struggling a lot to find goals while Andorra have improved their defensive displays significantly.
This makes the Under 2.5 goals by far the best betting option here. The braver punters can try with the goalless draw at the sky-high 8/1 odds.
