Our football match prediction:
Faroe Islands play host to Latvia at Torsvollur in Torshavn on Saturday evening. The minnows did remarkably well to beat Andorra in their last qualifying match and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of Saturday’s football match against Latvia. Faroe Islands have been producing fine performances in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and we predict that they will grab something from the Latvia game. The Baltic side kicked off their qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win over Andorra, but they are on a seven-match losing run in Group B ahead of the trip to Torshavn and they are unlikely to put an end to the negative trend. Faroe Islands are eyeing their third win of the process and we believe that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration. It has to be noted that Lars Olsen’s men recorded a 2-0 win over Latvia when the two sides met at Stadions Skonto in October, 2016.
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.
