Latvia Prediction – Can Latvia get on the board?

Rock-bottom Latvia slumped to their fifth defeat on the trot in Group G on the weekend when they were handed a heavy 6-0 loss away at Austria, leaving Monday night’s hosts bottom of the group without a single point to their name and a whopping 19 goals conceded to date.

It’s been a disastrous campaign for Latvia who have not only suffered 5 defeats on the trot during this Euro 2020 group phase, but have also failed to win any of their last 16 matches in Euro qualifiers, with their last success being a 2-0 home win against Malta back in October 2011.

Not that results at home have been any better either as Latvia have lost their last 5 matches on the trot on home soil and have gone 7 matches without a win in their own backyard, making the hosts one of the poorest performing teams in these Euro qualifiers.

In addition, Latvia have lost both of their previous meetings against North Macedonia, albeit both away from home in 3-1 and 2-1 defeats respectively.

North Macedonia Prediction – Can North Macedonia stay in hunt?

The visitors grabbed what could prove to be a valuable point away from home in their 1-1 draw away at Israel over the weekend to take their points tally to 5 after their first 5 matches played in Group G.

North Macedonia opened their account with a resounding 3-1 home win against tonight’s opponents, Latvia, to get them off to a good start in their bid to qualify for the European Championships for the first time in their footballing history.

Points on the road at Slovenia and the aforementioned Israel were either side of back-to-back defeats though to Poland 1-0 and Austria 4-1 which were both inflicted upon them on home turf at their Toše Proeski Arena in Skopje.

This has left their ambitions for a top two finish hanging by a thread but all three points away at Latvia on Monday night would keep them in the hunt, but they’ll have to do something they haven’t done in their last 10 matches on their travels, and that is register a win on the road here.

However, they’ve won the last two meetings against Latvia and will fancy their chances here.


Key-Facts – Latvia v North Macedonia

  • Latvia have lost their last 5 Euro qualifiers on the trot at home
  • Latvia possess the third worst defensive record to date in these qualifiers
  • North Macedonia have won the previous 2 encounters against Latvia


Betting Tips Verdict

Latvia are a very fragile outfit at the moment and this could be North Macedonia’s best chance yet to record a win on the road.
