Latvia Preview – Can the Latvians cause a huge upset?

Latvia have had a mixed qualifying campaign so far, picking up just one win from their opening six matches. Overall, they have lost three, drawn two and won one, scoring seven and shipping ten.

After starting with defeats to Montenegro and Holland, Latvia picked up an excellent point in Turkey on matchday three. They followed that up with a 3-1 home victory over Gibraltar. Latvia were beaten by Norway in game five before holding Montenegro to a draw in Podgorica.

Our betting prediction:
Holland to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 0919 GMT, Thursday 7 October)

As you would expect, Dainis Kazakevics’ 11 Wolves head into this qualifying fixture as the big underdogs, with the bookies offering 20/1 for a home win. Still, can Latvia cause a huge upset on their own patch this Friday night?

Netherlands Preview – Easy three points for the Dutch?

Louis van Gaal’s Holland are embroiled in a fascinating battle with Norway for first place in Group G. Ahead of the October qualifiers, the Dutch lead the way only on goal difference. The pair go head-to-head in the final group game in Rotterdam next month.

Holland have been solid enough so far, winning four, drawing one and losing one of their opening six matches. Their sole defeat came in the first qualifier in Turkey back in March. Since then, they have taken 13 points from a possible 15, seeing off Latvia, Gibraltar, Montenegro and Turkey and drawing with the Norwegians.

Latvia vs Netherlands Betting Advice

Netherlands cruised to a 2-0 win when the duo squared off at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam back in March. Steven Berghuis gave Oranje a first-half lead, which Luuk de Jong doubled in the second period.

Holland also won the previous three meetings without conceding a single goal. In UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying, Netherlands won 2-0 away and 6-0 at home. They also beat them in the group stage of Euro 2004, with Ruud van Nistelrooy (2) and Roy Makaay scoring in a 3-0 victory.


Key Facts – Latvia vs Netherlands Betting Tip

  • Holland won the reverse game by two goals to nil
  • The Dutch are currently joint top of the group
  • Oranje have taken 13 points from the last 15 available


Holland eased to a victory when they met in the Dutch capital back in March, and we could see a similar outcome on Friday. We fancy the visitors to prevail by a margin, so take a punt on Holland to win -1 at 2/7.

Barcelona man Memphis Depay has been in devastating form in the qualifiers, scoring seven times already. Memphis is the bookies’ favourite at 11/4 to score the first goal in this one.
