Latvia Preview – Will the Latvians make sure of promotion?

Latvia have had a superb Nations League campaign so far. Dainis Kazakevics, who took over in 2020, has guided 11 Wolves to four wins out of four. Along the way, the Latvians have scored ten and shipped just two.

Latvia kicked off Group D1 with an easy 3-0 home success over Andorra in June. They then beat Liechtenstein 1-0 and Moldova 4-2. In the last fixture, a Vladislavs Gutkovskis brace gave Latvia a 2-0 victory against Liechtenstein at Rheinpark Stadium in Vaduz.

One win from their final two fixtures will do the business. After entertaining the Moldovans in Riga, Latvia’s group campaign ends with a trip to Andorra la Vella at the weekend. Latvia will be looking for six more points.

Moldova Preview – Can the Moldovans pull off a shock in Riga?

Moldova have been the best of the rest in Group D1 up to now. They sit second on seven points after two wins, a draw and a loss. Of course, their sole defeat came at the hands of Latvia back in June.

Moldova started with a routine win against Liechtenstein before a 0-0 draw in Andorra. They bounced back from the Latvia defeat with a narrow 2-1 home success over Andorra, scoring from the penalty spot twice.
