Latvia vs Austria Prediction & Tips
Define it, if you wish, Cinderella. Latvia is not that impressed (to say the least) in these Euro 2020 qualifications, far from it. On the other hand the classification speaks very clear and leaves little hope for the hosts: Latvians last in the rankings, Austrians second and already qualified for the tournament next June. In any case, this race will serve Austria to make the tests in view of a competition that will be decidedly more demanding than this qualifying group has been. And Latvia seems to be the ideal sparring partner to test an attack that has not always been particularly inspired.
The defense of Latvia, however, has always given space and possibilities to the opponents: not surprisingly, nine defeats out of nine have arrived so far …
The Latvians have suffered as many as twenty-eight goals in the nine games played so far (therefore an average higher than the three goals collected per game).
At home, then, they have always lost with at least two goals difference: 0-2 against Macedonia, 0-3 against Poland and Israel and even 0-5 from Slovenia.
Latvia has only scored two goals to date in these qualifiers, but curiously they both arrived away.
Only on one occasion out of nine the Latvians lost with a single goal difference: it happened in Slovenia and the match ended 1-0 for the hosts.
Also considering the result of the first leg (in Austria it ended even 6-0 for the hosts), we doubt that the Austrians could have some difficulty to impose themselves in Latvia. The 2 final result, however, has an extremely popular share, so we focus on the Austrian victory but with Handicap -1.
