You can follow our free preview prediction and betting tips on this page.

Latvia will battle for at least a point

Latvia are unbeaten in their last three of four World Cup Qualifiers. However, as they host the Netherlands that record could well weaken against a rejuvenated Dutch side. Moreover, the Wolves have not scored a single goal past the dutch in any of their four meetings.

 Currently ranked 135 in the world, Latvia’s best achievement was appearing in the Euro 2004 on the international level. In the ongoing WCQ, Latvia won their first match against Gibraltar last month. However, their draw in Istanbul against Turkey last March was their best performance and result so far in group G.

Latvia Key Points

  • Latvia have zero clean sheets in their last four games
  • The average number of goals scored in Latvia’s last four home games is 2.75

The Netherlands going all out for a win

This is a must-win game for the Netherlands. To explain, Latvia are the second weakest team in the group and two points are separating the top three teams. Hence any loss of points would let their opponents catch up. Consequently, Louis van Gaal will be very demanding of his players.

Notably, the Oranje didn’t qualify for World Cup 2018 and that is still fresh in the memory. As a result, Van Gaal will use that to motivate his players. Also, the fact that they still have to play Norway who are second with the same points of 13, makes this game so important.

The Netherlands Key Points

  • The Netherlands are averaging 3.75 goals per match in the WCQ
  • Van Gaal’s team scored in all of their six WCQ games
  • Holland are undefeated in three games

Latvia vs Netherlands Prediction

There is no doubt that the Netherlands are firm favorites to win this match. In fact, bookies are favoring them with odds as low as 1.10. Additionally, bookies expect a high-scoring game offering odds of just 1.33 for over 2.5 goals.

Moreover, and since Latvia couldn’t score any goals past the Dutch in four attempts, BTTS no has odds of 1.49.

However,  if we look at the combos section at Vbet, we can find some markets with good values For example, a Netherlands win combined with both teams not scoring has odds of 1.55. This is highly probable with good odds and we will back it.
