Latvia – Can Latvia avoid a third defeat on the trot?

Latvia head into their Friday night encounter with Israel sitting bottom of Group G without a point to their name following back-to-back defeats in the early stages of these Euro 2020 qualifiers, courtesy of losses to North Macedonia 3-1 and a 2-0 loss at Poland, both of which were away from home.

It was a tough start to Latvia’s Euro 2020 campaign, and although they’ll head back to home surroundings for this clash with Israel, they’re still likely to have their backs to the wall against a high-flying Israel outfit who have made a solid start to these qualifiers.

The hosts are without a win from their last 10 matches in all competitions, and indeed have managed to record just 1 win out of their last 16 matches, which was a 1-0 home win over Estonia.

Dig even deeper and you’ll find that Latvia have actually registered just 2 wins from their last 27 matches overall, so the hopes of the hosts grabbing all three points on Friday night appear to be extremely slim.

Israel Prediction – Can Israel continue their good start?

By contrast, Israel have made a promising start to their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign as they sit in 2nd place in Group G and are just 2 points adrift of group favourites, Poland, who, as expected, sit top of the 6-nation group.

Nevertheless, Israel grabbed a point in a 1-1 draw at home with Slovenia to open their account and then followed that up with a valuable 4-2 home win over a disappointing Austria outfit who sit second from bottom in Group G without a point to their name to date.

The visitors have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches overall which was a 3-2 loss away to Scotland, but an earlier win over the Scots along with other victories against Albania, Guatemala and Austria should give the Israeli’s plenty of confidence ahead of their trip to Latvia on Friday night.

However, Israel will need to improve upon some very poor results away from home in recent times if they’re to make a serious challenge to appear in the Euro 2020 finals as they’ve lost 5 of their last 6 on their travels, with their one success during this lean period being a 1-0 win at minnows Liechtenstein.


Key-Facts – Latvia v Israel

  • Latvia have won just 2 of their last 27 matches in all competitions
  • Israel have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches on the international stage
  • Israel recorded a 2-1 win at Latvia in their last visit some 8 years ago


Betting Tips Verdict

Latvia possess an appalling record in internationals and Israel with their promising start look the more confident and able outfit to take the points in this clash.
