Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Estadi Nacional in Andorra la Vella will host Tuesday’s Nations League game between Andorra and Lativa. The Andorrans are stuck at the bottom of the table ahead of the last group match, but a win over Latvia will see them finish the process in the third place. Anyhow, home win should not be considered as Andorra experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Malta.
The Latvians head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Faroe Islands, and, no doubt, they are eager to record their first win of the process. The former Soviet republic will not have a better chance than this to get back on course, and we predict that they will take advantage of Andorra’s shaky defence. The good news for the visitors is that Arturs Zjuzins returns to contention after serving his ban against Faroe Islands.
Highlighted Team (Latvia):
Latvia is yet another former Soviet republic. The Latvian footballers played for the Soviet Union national team until 1992 and they have been playing for Latvia ever since. The Sarkanbaltsarkanie (Red-white-red) did remarkably well to qualify for the Euro 2004 finals, but they failed to impress at the showpiece tournament in Portugal.
Latvia kicked off their Euro 2004 campaign with a 2-1 loss to Czech Republic and they managed to hold Germany to a goalless draw in their second group game. The former Soviet republic suffered a 3-0 loss to Netherlands in their last game in Group D and, as a result, they did not make it to the knockout stages of the European Championship finals.
Latvia suffered their biggest defeat on May 29, 1927 when they were beaten by Sweden 12-0 in Stockholm. Speaking of their biggest victory, the Latvians outclassed Lithuania 5-0 on two occasions. The Latvian national football team play their home games at Skonto stadium in Riga and the capacity of the venues is 9.500.
