17:00, Mar 27 2021
Netherlands vs Latvia predictions for Saturday’s World Cup qualifier clash at Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam. After losing their opening match against Turkey, The Netherlands take on Latvia in search of their first three points. Read along for our free prediction and betting tips.

The Netherlands to bounce back after opening match defeat

It was a disappointing start for the Dutch team to say the least after losing to Turkey 4-2 in their opening match of the World Cup qualifiers. The Oranje were 3-0 down after 46 minutes, the quickest ever three-goal deficit since 1961 when they were down by Hungary.

This was The Netherlands’ first defeat in four matches as Frank De Boer’s team had three wins two draws and one defeat in the Nations League competition. Franck De Boer has a good team and they are expected to bounce back against Latvia and get their first three points.

The Oranje had 65% of possession in their match against Turkey but couldn’t convert 20 goal attempts to more than two goals. Frank De Boer made changes in the second half and the Dutch team came back to 3-2 but a fourth goal in the dying minutes by the Turks canceled the comeback.

Latvia looking for their first goal against their opponents

Latvia are the only Baltic country to have appeared in a major competition and that was the Euro 2004. They are currently ranked 136 at the FIFA world ranking system and come into this match as the underdogs after losing their opening match of the WCQ against Montenegro.

They finished third in group 1 of  Europe’s Nations League competition after winning one of their six matches. They had a good result by beating Austria in the Euro 2020 qualifiers. 

In their opening match for the current WCQ matches, they went ahead in the match against Montenegro but couldn’t hold their lead as their visitors scored twice after having better ball possession with 60% and 24 goal attempts of which seven were on target.

Key Stats

  • The Netherlands have won four of their last five home matches
  • The Netherlands have scored in five of their last six home matches
  • Latvia have lost all their previous three matches against The Netherlands
  • Latvia have not scored any goals against The Netherlands in three matches

The Netherlands vs Latvia Prediction

Franck De Boer will make sure his team bounces back after the opening match defeat. It should be an easy task for the Dutch as they have scored 11 goals past their opponents in their previous three meetings. 

Looking at the odds, all prices are very low because of the difference in level between the two teams. Obviously, The Dutch team is favorite to win and Frank De Boer’s team is expected to score a bunch of goals. We will back the total match goals scored in this match.
