Latvia: Honestly, this is a very weak team and Latvian football hasn’t really improved.
They are a team with few ideas and not enough quality that has been playing poorly in this qualification group stage.
They are sitting in last place with only 3 points, gained in Andorra on the 1st match. After that, they lost the 6 following matches, including at home against the Faroe Islands.
They are a limited team without much individual and collective quality so this is not a surprise for those who have watched this team, they are in last place due to their own poor performances.
Against Switzerland they will attempt to scrap a few points again, after having lost in Hungary 3-1.
Switzerland: The Swiss are still fighting and defending their 1st place with everything they’ve got.
They have really taken advantage of their win over Portugal in the 1st match, where Portugal had some important absences and was on the “hangover” after the European Championships where they made history. The Swiss took advantage and deservingly won.
They have 7 wins in 7 matches and they will look to defend their 1st place at least until the match in Portugal, where everything will be decided. The Swiss have a very reasonable roster and they are an interesting team with good offensive ability.
On this trip to Latvia, only the win matters. On their last match, they’ve beaten Andorra with Seferovic, Benfica’s striker, on the spotlight.
Latvia vs Switzerland – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Switzerland is clearly a stronger team and I don’t believe they will slip up in this match.
Latvia is a very fragile team with a lot of weaknesses and a pretty weak footballing level, way weaker than what I expected to be honest.
Switzerland has only won so far in the competition, and I expect another victory here in Latvia, with them giving another important step into securing that 1st place,.
Which only Portugal is able to snatch from them in the last match day, where the two teams will face off in Lisbon.
