Latvia vs Portugal: Preview & Prediction
This confrontation is scheduled to begin at 21:45 and will be played on Riga’s Stadions Skonto. As expected, guests are the favorites to win this game, but their share of a win is a small one at Unibet, only 1.14 and is not worth playing. I have chosen for the match between Latvia and Portugal a prognosis based on the final result but also on the way the table will look. In the following lines you will find more information and statistics that will help you to make a judgment about the meeting, but also my tip with the arguments I have found for him.
He is the penultimate player in Group B of the World Cup Preliminaries in Russia with 3 points after 5 stages.
He crosses a very weak form because he lost in the last 5 games.
Even at home things are not better, being defeated in 5 of the last 7 games on their own ground.
Along with Faroe has the second weakest offensive with 2 successes, and defense is still there with 9 goals received.
Artus Lazdins is the only player unavailable, and Nikita Kolesovs seems to be defending against the European champion.
The probable team (4-5-1): Vanins – Freimanis, Jagodinskis, Gorkss, Solovjovs – Visnakovs, Kamess, Laizans, Kluskins, Ikaunieks – Sabala.
He occupies the second place in this group B with 12 points after 5 stages and is 3 away from Switzerland, the leader of the leaderboard.
It’s in good shape for winning 5 of the last 6 games, just defeating home from the friendly with Sweden being the only wrong step.
After the Euro 2016 he had 2 trips, one lost in Switzerland and one victory in Faroe.
The attack is the most effective in the group with 19 successes and the first place is the defensive, on the same level as the Swiss, with 3 goals received.
Central defender José Fonte said before this game that they only believe victory, although they are aware that it will be hard to conquer.
Fernando Santos would like to save Cristiano Ronaldo for the Confederate Cup, but it is hard to believe that he will succeed, Real Madrid’s player being able to pass the third round of the UEFA Europa League scorers if he scores.
The probable team (4-3-3): Rui Patricio – Soares, Neto, Fonte, Eliseu – Moutinho, Carvalho, Mario – Bernardo Silva, Andre Silva, Ronaldo.
