Latvia vs. Austria – Prediction (EURO Qualification – 19.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Despite averaging a respectable 1.65 points per-game throughout his managerial career, Slaviša Stojanovič has lost his opening nine games in the Latvia job. In fact, Latvia (FIFA rank: #143) make up one of just three sides (of 55) in qualifying to lose every single game, putting them in the bottom 5.45% of UEFA nations in this Euro 2020 qualification campaign. Vladimir Kamešs scored one of Latvia’s two goals in this qualifying campaign, while the other came via an own-goal. Whilst Stojanovič has witnessed his charges score twice vs higher-ranked nations, they are the only two goals for Latvia he has overseen (0.22 per-match on average) – all whilst shipping 3.11 goals per-match on average. Moreover, Latvia is the only nation of 55 yet to score in front of their own fans in the Euro 2020 qualification campaign.

Latvia are without a goal in their last 500 minutes of home football. There have been over 3.5 match goals in three of the last four H2Hs. Austria have received 3+ bookings in three of their last four away matches.

In stark contrast, Austria have already achieved Euro 2020 qualification after an impressive qualifying campaign (W6, D1, L2). Only half of the visitors’ victories have come after winning the first half, whilst they only ever trailed at the break against group winners Poland. Austria top-scorer Marco Arnautović scored the first goal of both halves in their demolition job of Latvia in the reverse fixture. Since the start of 2017, Austria have won along with a cleansheet in each of their four matches vs nations currently ranked below #100 by FIFA. Three of those wins came by a margin of 2+ goals (3.25 scored per-match on average), while two of those four games saw a goalless first half.
