Match Preview

League D Group One minnows, Latvia (FIFA ranking: 129th) and Andorra (FIFA ranking: 130th), kick-start their inaugural 2018/19 UEFA Nations League campaign, with the hosts hoping to make it six wins from six meetings against their opponents.
Latvia haven’t had much success recently, winning just twice in their last 19 games (W2, D3, L14), and failing to score in ten of those, conceding an average of two goals per match.
During the 2018 World Cup (WC) qualification campaign, Latvia lost seven of their ten matches finishing second-bottom of their group (W2, D1, L7). Their only two wins of that campaign were against this game’s opponents, with a 1-0 victory in Andorra followed by a 4-0 win at home.
Andorra could be the whipping boys of the group and their recent form of six losses in eight games bears testimony to that (W1, D1, L6). In seven of those Andorra drew a blank – a reality that has happened in 17 of their last 20 games.
The visitors have traditionally struggled to pick-up points and have lost 88 of their last 100 matches, winning just four. However, three wins in 11 games since 2017 points towards improved fortunes.
Players to watch: Valērijs Šabala’s 12 goals in 44 matches makes him the top-scorer in Latvia’s squad, while Ildefons Limais Andorra’s most capped player and highest all-time top scorer.
Stat attack: Latvia have won all five matches they’ve played against Andorra, scoring 14 goals (an average of 2.8 per game) and conceding just once.
Latvia have not been winning at half-time in any of their last eight matches in all competitions.
There have been under 2.5 goals in nine of Andorra’s last 11 matches, and in five of Latvia’s last six in all competitions.
