Lithuania vs Latvia Preview and Predictions

Lithuania vs Latvia Friendly International 5th June 2018 by LeagueLane

Lithuania vs Latvia
Baltic Cup
Date: Tuesday, 5 June 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Vilniaus LFF stadionas, Vilnius.

Lithuania and Latvia are set to drop the curtain to this year’s Baltic Cup edition on Tuesday afternoon when they are to determine the champion in the clash at Vilniaus LFF stadionas. Latvia are in a much better position as a draw here would make them competition winners following the weekend’s narrow victory over Estonia.

Lithuania, on the other side, need a victory by three or more goals to overtake Estonia against whom they had suffered a 2-0 loss on Wednesday. It was a truly disappointing performance from the team led by Edgaras Jankauskas who just failed to convert in front of the opponents’ goal on the opening day.

Latvia, on the other side, ended their negative streak in international friendlies by edging past Estonia 1-0 on Saturday thanks to a goal from Liepaja’s Janis Ikaunieks.

Lithuania vs Latvia: Head-to-head

  • Latvia were the much more successful outfit in the history of head to head encounters with LTU.
  • The Red-White-Reds won 9 and lost only 4 of 15 H2H matches with Lithuania.
  • Latvia head into this off the back of four wins in last five ties against Lithuania
  • Nevertheless, Latvia only managed to beat Lithuania once in five fixtures on the Lithuanian soil.

Lithuania vs Latvia: Prediction

We expect to witness a very competitive affair from both sides on the final day of the competition. Both Lithuania and Latvia will be highly motivated to get the result here and boost up the momentum ahead of the challenges in the UEFA Nations League in September.

Making the difference will be a huge challenge here knowing that both outfits have been struggling for goals in their most recent friendlies. The value-seekers will thus fancy the draw at the 3.10 odds, while punters who prefer safer options can hardly make a mistake backing the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at 1.44. You can also back the goalless draw at 5.25.

Lithuania vs Latvia: Betting Tips

  • Draw @ 3.10
