Latvia take on the visitors Moldova in the round 5 match of UEFA Nations League (League D). The match will be played on Thursday, September 22nd at Daugavas stadions (Riga).
Latvians felt like big guys in this quartet. In company with Moldova, Andorra and Liechtenstein, the Latvian national team is still walking without defeat. As for the tournament layout before the reporting round, Latvia had to take literally a small step towards victory in the group. Now the Balts have 12 points out of 12 possible, the Moldovans are in the second position with 7 points. So it turns out that not tricky mathematics is obtained here, even a draw in the reporting round will make the winners of the quartet out of the Latvians. But given the previous meetings of Latvia in the current tournament, there is not much faith in the fact that they will stop at a peaceful outcome. The goal difference in Latvia before the reporting match is 10:2. The Baltic team is trying to look as confident as possible in these meetings, and to please their fans with victories. We can agree here with the bookmakers who put up the Latvians - the favorites of the upcoming meeting.

The Moldovans have been so drowning in defeats in recent years that for them two victories within 2 weeks are just some kind of miracle. These victories were over teams of the lowest level, namely, over Andorra and Liechtenstein. But given that before that the Moldovans lost in 11 meetings in a row, even such victories were extremely important for them. As for the upcoming meeting, there are still theoretical chances for the Moldovans to win in the group, they need to defeat the Latvians, then Liechtenstein, and Latvia should lose to Andorra in the final round, in general - complete fantasy. A more realistic scenario is that the Moldovans will simply lose in the reporting round and that's it. Latvia is highly motivated for this meeting. The Balts can guarantee themselves a victory in the group, and they will have a more or less real chance to get to EURO 2024. Plus, the Latvians have a desire to show a 100% score and score 18 out of 18 possible points in this group. Well, the Moldavians lost 2:4 to the Latvians in reverse fixture, so they will probably concede a couple of goals in Latvia as well.
At first glance, it may seem that Latvia and Moldova are teams of equal strength. But in reality, nevertheless, the Balts have a better team now, the Latvians do not go into such dull series of defeats as the Moldovans. Here, in fact, in the reporting duel, there is more faith in the hosts of the arena. Our bet on this match: Latvia to win.
Prediction for the match: Latvia to win.
