Wales take on the visitors Latvia in the round 2 match of UEFA Euro 2024 qualification. The match will be played on Tuesday, March 28th at Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff).
In this qualifying group, it seems that Wales will be competing with the Turks for a spot in the EURO, while the Croatians are certain to hold onto one of the top two positions, leaving one spot open. The first round went well for the Welsh, as they managed to draw 1-1 with the Croatians. However, the situation for the Welsh team is currently quite unclear, as they have gone winless for 9 matches, and are facing significant attacking problems. There have been matches where the Welsh have been unable to score at all, or have only scored one goal. Finding a match where Wales has scored a decent amount of goals against their opponents is quite rare, even against modest opponents, as their attack is far from ideal, and they rarely score more than 2-3 goals. Therefore, the upcoming match against seemingly modest Latvia is not so obvious in terms of the final result.

Latvia has long since become a team that no one takes too seriously. However, they performed quite well in the qualification for the 2022 World Cup, by their standards. They earned 9 points and gave very strong opponents a run for their money, drawing 0-0 with Norway and 3-3 with the Turks. Latvian football fans were undoubtedly pleased with their team's performance in that qualifying cycle. As for the current qualifying cycle, of course, no one considers Latvia a contender for the top two spots. However, the Baltic team is quite capable of showing character, and the Welsh could face certain difficulties. Therefore, betting with a large negative handicap on the hosts does not seem preferable, and it might be worth considering a positive handicap on the guests.
As I already mentioned, the Welsh have clear attacking problems, and they do not score many goals even against modest opponents. Latvia left a good impression with their performance in the previous qualification, and there is reason to believe that this time they will also try to keep up with their opponents. So, the suggested bet is: Handicap (+2.5) on Latvia.
Prediction for the match: Latvia to win with +2.5 handicap.
