On September 1, 2021, there will be a match between the national teams of Latvia and Gibraltar at the Daugava Riga stadium in Latvia. The match will start at 21:45 (Moscow Standard Time).
Since both opponents will not be able to move upwards in Group G, considering their poor performances which have kept them at the bottom, we assert that the outcome of the upcoming match will be insignificant to them. Although the guests will try to improve their current situation in the standings on Wednesday night, we forecast a tense struggle (by both teams) to improve performance and points.
Now having found the favorite of Wednesday’s match, we offer our prediction of Latvia vs Gibraltar match.
Latvia national football team
A team with hidden potential!
Latvia did not start well at the beginning of the competition. However, in their last match, the team drew with unbeaten Turkey who currently occupies first place in the standings. The Red-White-Reds will likely use their potential to rehabilitate their current situation by having good results in subsequent games.
The Latvians have played three matches in the qualifying round with the following results:
- 24.03.2021: vs Montenegro, 1-2 defeat;
- 27.03.2021: vs the Netherlands, 0-2 defeat;
- 30.03.2021: vs Turkey, 3-3 draw.
Victories in the upcoming game and future matches will make it possible for Latvia to move to the top three teams in Group G.
Gibraltar national football team
Faced with an uncertain future!
The situation of Gibraltar is more complicated, with three group games lost. But as regards victory over opponents, Latvia overtook Gibraltar on points because they have one point from a draw.
In terms of victory, it is possible to dispute the victory of Gibraltar by analyzing the ZM, PM, and RM indicators. The national team’s goal difference has a huge negative coefficient (-13), which indicates a low level of ball possession compared to that of their opponents in the group.
Gibraltar has played three matches in the qualifying round with the following results:
- 24.03.2021: vs Norway, 0-3 defeat;
- 27.03.2021: vs Montenegro, 1-4 defeat;
- 30.03.2021: vs the Netherlands, 0-7 defeat.
Taking into account the results of the previous games of both national teams and the statistics of the standings, we conclude that the Latvians will score at least three times in the whole game, while Gibraltar will score at least one goal.
The probable result of the match: the Latvians will defeat Gibraltar in the upcoming match.
