Europe – Euro Qualifiers
Date: Thursday, 21st March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Philip II Arena (Skopje).

Both teams took part in the Nations League in the League D. While Macedonia had the time of their lives in the competition, with some spectacular performances, the other one failed to register a single win. They managed just two goals in the whole of the competition, while Macedonia recorded a massive 14 goals.

Importantly, Macedonia got promoted to League C, and in style. They had a five-point lead at the top, over the second-placed team.

With Poland and Austria in the mix, the remaining teams need to be on alert. They should gather points in whichever games they could. Home games and that too against minnows should be given paramount importance.

Macedonia vs Latvia Prediction

Their exemplary performance in the recently-concluded Nations League lifted Macedonia to League C from the lower division. They recorded five wins from their six games while winning all three at home. On the other hand, Latvia registered the lowest points in the group and completed the whole group stage winless. They could record just two goals during the whole campaign.

On top of their great form, Macedonia is at home this Thursday. They were unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 games and won their last five home ties in a row. The team also managed two or more goals in all five ties and four or more in three of the five. The combined scoreline for the five fixtures is 16-1, in favor of the home team.

Meanwhile, Latvia is winless in their last 14 away ties on the trot. They recorded just three goals in their last seven fixtures on the road and failed to score in 11 of their last 19.

Importantly, Latvia has a 100% losing record against Macedonia. Expect a huge win by the hosts.
