Portugal vs Latvia
2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers – Europe, Group B.
Date: Sunday, 13th November 2016.
Kick-off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Venue: Estadio Algarve.
The European champions Portugal will welcome Latvia to Estadio do Algarve on Sunday night in the game-week 4 of the Europe – World cup qualifiers 2018.
Portugal fell to a defeat at the hands of Switzerland in the wake of the campaign, but have since joined the winning train. They have been banging in goals in their last 2 games scoring 6 in each of them. They defeated Andorra 6-0 at home and Faroe Island 0-6 on the road. Cr7 and his cohorts will aim for another strong win in this one to keep on with the winning streak.
Latvia will enter this game from back to back defeats, and this game seems to be their most difficult fixture. Except for their first game which they won against Andorra, they have been poor in the campaign. They will be praying not to conceded as much as other teams Portugal have preyed upon in the previous game weeks.
Portugal vs Latvia: Head to Head Statistics
Portugal have an excellent record against Latvia in their previous meetings. They have met 4 times previously and Portugal have won all 4 irrespective of the playing ground. Furthermore, Portugal have scored at least 2 goals in each of their games against Latvia. Also, they have kept clean sheets in their last 2 games against Latvia.
Portugal vs Latvia: Prediction
In this game, we expect Latvia to play a high defensive line and try to hold Portugal to a draw. If they can prevent Portugal from scoring early in the game, we are sure the goals will be minimal. However Portugal will make the attacks difficult for Latvia to absorb and just like their Previous two, this might be another goal galore. We are expecting the goal not to be more than 3 considering their previous games. A score line of 2-0 or 3-0 is likely to occur.
