Latvia – Kazakhstan : Preview & Prediction
Despite having only one point in their first two UNL games, Letonia still hopes to get their first goal in the UEFA Nations League (UNL) and hopes to get it against Kazakhstan, the team that is in last place in Group 1 of the D. League
In addition to having trouble scoring at the UNL, Latvia has also failed to score in five of its last seven home games (not including friendlies). The record in those matches indicates two victories, one draw and four defeats.
The performance of the visiting team is not very exciting either, as Kazakhstan does not know of victories in their last 12 official matches (E4, P8). In fact, his last victory in a picado of that characteristic was a triumph as a visit to Latvia in 2015. That has been his only triumph in an official match away from home since September 2009.
The historical record between these two casts is quite divided, as Latvia has a narrow advantage of two wins, two draws and one defeat.
The games between these two casts tend to have few goals and that is that each of the last three duels have had less than 1.5 goals. In fact, the last match between the two also meant the only win for Kazakhstan in history against Latvia (won 1-0).
Players to watch: Valērijs Šabala is Letonia top scorer with 12 goals in 46 matches. He has seven goals in 12 games as a starter in Poland’s first division this season.
Surprisingly, central defender Yuri Logvinenko is the top scorer in Kazakhstan’s current squad. He has scored the only goal of his team in the UNL so far.
Statistics to consider: Latvia has received two or more yellow cards in each of its last four matches (in all competitions).
Latvia have failed to score in each of their last three games against Kazakhstan.
Kazakhstan received three or more goals in seven of its last eight defeats in official games. In addition, the visiting team has received two or more goals in 19 of their last 20 losses in all competitions.
