Latvia vs Slovenia Predictions and Match Preview

Latvia vs Slovenia
EURO 2020 Qualification
Date: Monday, 10th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Daugavas stadions (Riga).

Latvia has not been able to make an impact so far in Group G yet. They lost both their ties so far and is subsequently placed at the extreme end of the table. As far as stats are concerned, the team has posted the worst of almost all the major ones.

They have conceded the most goals, scored the least, and as a result, have posted the worst goal difference.

Expectedly they lost on the road against Poland, where Robert Lewandowski continued his scoring run, and while pitted against North Macedonia, the result was a 3-1 away loss. The lone goal for the visitors was, in fact, an own goal.

Counterparts Slovenia drew both their ties in the tournament. And it needs to be mentioned that on both occasions, the squad conceded a leading position to the opponent. While away from home taking on Israel, Slovenia had drawn first blood, but could not hold on to the lead as the hosts equalized seven minutes later.

On the same note, their home tie against Macedonia too ended in this same scoreline. The hosts were leading at half time, courtesy – a goal in the 34th minute. But the visitors hit back right after the latter half commenced.

Latvia vs Slovenia Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Not a single tie has so far culminated in a draw.
  • Slovenia won two of the last three games.
  • At home, Latvia has lost its sole game against this rival.
  • Only once has Latvia kept a clean sheet against Slovenia.

Latvia vs Slovenia Prediction

Latvia has not held up well in this competition. They lost both their ties, and to be frank, at this point, is the worst team in the group. They have conceded five goals in total while returning only one. Importantly, Latvia is on a streak of ten winless fixtures and was so in 21 of their last 23 attempts as well.

At home, the squad was winless in nine of their last eleven tries, while conceding two or more goals in seven of their last eleven such match-ups.

On the other hand, Slovenia has not lost a game in their last five match-days, and on their last two on the road as well. Not only that, the team has scored in eight of their last nine clashes too.

Coming to h2h ties, Slovenia won every one of those except for one, and found the back of the net in every one except the one match as well.

This Monday, expect the guests to take the three points. But considering the home advantage for Latvia, and the fact that Slovenia is struggling in front of the goal, wait for a low goal-scoring affair.
