Latvia vs Georgia Predictions and Match Preview

Latvia vs Georgia
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 16th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Daugavas stadions (Riga).

Georgia looks to seal their top spot with a win in this match against Latvia. They stand on nine points from three matches. Three wins out of three have catapulted them to a seven-point lead over Andorra, Latvia, and Kazakhstan.

Latvia is still searching for their first win in the tournament. They have also been lacklustre in front of the goal. In their last ten matches, they have scored more than one goal just once. The visitors look the favorites to take home the three points.

Georgia has a very good recent record against all opponents. They have recorded seven wins in the last ten matches and all these seven wins came without conceding a single goal. Also, in their last 15 matches, they have just conceded at the rate of 0.6 goals per game.

Latvia is winless in their last five matches. And the streak in all probability will be extended against Georgia.

Latvia vs Georgia head to head

  • Latvia has just two wins in their last ten matches at home.
  • Georgia’s last four away matches had under 2.5 goals.
  • Last three matches of Latvia had under 2.5 goals.
  • Georgia has won their last three matches without conceding a goal.

Latvia vs Georgia Prediction

Georgia is on the brink of promotion to League C. And against struggling Latvia, it’s a chance that has been presented to them on a platter. Georgia in all likelihood will grab the opportunity with both hands.

Latvia has been struggling in front of the goal as well as at the back. Their weaknesses will be exploited very well by the in-form Georgian team.

Both of these teams are not famous for scoring a lot of goals. Georgia, though they secure wins, the margin is always very low. Their matches seldom go beyond 2.5 goals. The struggling forwards of the Latvian team aren’t expected to score goals against the well-disciplined Georgian defence either.

Latvia vs Georgia Betting Tips

  • Georgia to win @ 1.90 (9/10)
