Latvia vs Israel Predictions and Match Preview

Latvia vs Israel
EURO 2020 Qualification
Date: Friday, 7th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Daugavas stadions (Riga).

Israel is giving tough competition to topper Poland in its quest to gain qualification for the Euros. They recorded a comeback win at home over Austria. The hosts had conceded in the eighth minute itself and invited some early pressure. But they dealt with it quite admirably and scored four in return.

Against Slovenia, once again the team scripted a comeback. After conceding in the 48th minute, the team equalized the score seven minutes later. The team couldn’t convert this one into a win though.

In theory, Latvia has not scored a goal in the tournament yet. They lost 2-0 to Poland, and 3-1 to North Macedonia. But the sole goal in their name was an own goal.

Latvia vs Israel Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Israel won the last two matches.
  • Only once has Israel failed to score against this team.
  • Latvia conceded two or more goals in the last two attempts.
  • Israel has never conceded more than one goal in a game.

Latvia vs Israel Prediction

Israel is yet to lose a game in this competition, while Latvia has lost both of their ties so far. Israel showed great character in coming back against Austria and Slovenia after conceding first. Compared to those two teams, Latvia might not be that big of a challenge.

Going on, Israel scored two or more goals in the last two encounters against Latvia, while they themselves have never conceded more than once in an h2h battle. Also, Israel won the last two meetings and the last they lost against Latvia was back in 2009.

Latvia has been having a terrible tournament as of yet. They expectedly lost against Poland but had to lose against North Macedonia too. The team is yet to score a goal in this competition, as the only one in their name is an own goal.

Expect Israel to come out on top of this tie.
