Latvia vs Moldova Prediction & Match Preview
Latvia vs Moldova
UEFA Nations League
Date: Thursday, 22 September 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Daugavas stadions.
With a 100 percentage winning record so far, Latvia are easily the best team in the group at the moment. They need just a draw to secure promotion to the upper division and this Thursday at home they will go after that objective. The second-placed Moldova do not stand much chance as things stand.
The Moldovans are trailing five points below the toppers and with just two fixtures remaining they need to overcome a deficit of five points. Which means they will have to win the remaining two games and at the same time they need the toppers to lose their remaining two matches.
Anyhow, the Moldovans are already safe from relegation and this gives them the luxury to take risks and go after a win this Thursday.
But this is exactly what the hosts Latvia would want. Even a draw would help them top the group and they can afford to sit back and defend.
Their counterparts for whom a victory is a must, will have to leave spaces at the back and go after goals right from the get-go. These lapses in defense will be smartly taken advantage of by the hosts.
Moreover, the Latvians also have a superb head-to-head record against this opponent over the years and especially so in front of their home crowd.
For these reasons expect a victory for Latvia this Thursday.
The Latvians are on a 5 game-winning streak and they are also on an 8-fixture unbeaten run. Do also note that they scored ten goals from their past four games.
Going on the last they last at home was back in October of 2021 and this defeat had come against the in-form Turkey.
On the other hand, Moldova were winless in 36 of their past 40 overall games and in the process they went on a 10-game losing streak as well as another eight-fixture losing stretch, and two separate four match losing streaks as well.
Considering these observations, expect a dominant victory for Latvia this Thursday.
