UEFA Nations League
Pick: Latvia -1.5 Asian Handicap
Odds: 8/11
Bookmaker: BetVictor
(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 4 June 2022)

Preview: Contrasting starts to their League D Group 1 campaigns will mean very differing expectations ahead of Tuesday’s encounter at Daugavas Stadions, in Riga. Latvia, who have won all four prior home meetings whilst conceding only once, are red hot favourites to follow up their easy opening victory at this venue with another, this time against listless Liechtenstein.

Latvia – Wolves on the prowl for fourth win in five?

A first promotion at the third attempt, from the fourth and lowest tier of UEFA’s Nations League, has to be the aim for Latvia, whose rank has plummeted so sharply that a current mark of 135 is only 13 shy of their lowest ever, set in September 2017. More displays like the one witnessed on Friday, though, in their comprehensive 3-0 defeat of Andorra here in Riga, will certainly aid their push back up the world rankings.

That clinical performance last time out, scoring with all three efforts on target, continued a purple patch for the ’11 Wolves’ who now boast wins over Andorra, Azerbaijan and Gibraltar across their last four internationals. Meanwhile it is now five games without losing, conceding only twice, since a goal in the ninth minute of time added on condemned them to a 2-1 home defeat to Turkey in September 2021.

Key Stat: Both teams scored in only three of the past nine Latvia matches, while a clean sheet in Tuesday’s game would see the ’11 Wolves’ record three successive defensive shutouts for the first time since 2014.


Latvia Total Goals – Over 2.5



Liechtenstein – Listless Red-Blues to depart Riga empty-handed?

UEFA’s third lowest ranked nation (#192) made a predictably sluggish start to proceedings, in this their third stint in League D. Despite having the advantage of playing at home it was Moldova who came away with all three points in their meeting of the minnows, a 2-0 scoreline a fair reflection on a contest Liechtenstein struggled throughout to gain any sort of foothold. Mustering just the four shots, one on target.

Those issues in the attacking third of the pitch aren’t a recent phenomenon either. That a seventh straight game without a goal. All of those games resulted in them losing, with this the second time they’ve strung seven consecutive losses together since the beginning of 2021. If all this wasn’t nearly damning enough, the ‘Blues-Reds’ are currently without an away win since beating Luxembourg in October 2020 (D2 L8).

Key Stat: With only two goals scored in their past eight away internationals, Liechtenstein are staring at the very real prospect of an eighth consecutive loss ‘to nil’ having last scored any goal, home or away, in a 1-1 draw away to Armenia last September.

Latvia Vs Liechtenstein Betting Advice

While far from being the most attractive of betting propositions, it is one Latvia are nevertheless fully expected to seize upon as they look to double down on their 3-0 victory over Andorra at this very same venue three days earlier. Elsewhere that same evening, Liechtenstein were succumbing to an eighth consecutive loss – all of them without troubling the scorers – falling 2-0 at home to Moldova.


Latvia Vs Liechtenstein – Key Facts:

  • Whereas Latvia made the best start to life in League D Group 1, thrashing Andorra 3-0 at this venue three days ago, Liechtenstein slumped to a 2-0 home loss at the hands of Moldova.
  • That made it five unbeaten for Latvia (W3 D2). Conversely, Liechtenstein are on a seven game losing streak, with all of those losses seeing them fail to score a single goal.
  • Latvia would win all four previous home meetings between the nations, with three of these being ‘to nil’. The most recent being a 2-0 scoreline in a World Cup qualifier in October 2012.


Latvia are now unbeaten in five, winning three of their last four. It is form which merely serves to emphasis the current gulf between the two teams, and one which should be in evidence when the pair take to the field at Daugavas Stadions. Each of Latvia’s last three home wins – versus Andorra, Gibraltar and Lithuania – saw them prevail by at least a two-goal margin, score exactly three and net 2+ second-half goals.
