Our Prediction:

Israel will win

Israel – Latvia Match Prediction | 15-10-2019 14:45

Israel are determined to qualify for the European Championship finals for the first time ever and given Latvias poor form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away team. Andreas Herzogs troops shared the spoils with Slovenia in their opener, but they totally outplayed star-studded Austria in front of home fans three days later. In Moanes Dabburs absence a man to watch in the away side will be Brighton midfielder Baram Kayal.

Israel, meanwhile, are on a bit of a different sort of run right now. That match was in the Nations League, and it proved to be costly as they ended up second in League C, Group 1 behind Scotland. They have had an uptick in form and will be encouraged that they can keep it up and latch onto a potential slot in the Euros to come. Draws with Austria and Slovenia so far in this comp have them in fairly good spirits. Over the past year, they have four wins, a draw, and three losses, though they have only lost one of their last six. The Blue and Whites away record this past year has seen them lose all three times, so that needs some work.

In that competition, they ended up finishing in third place in League D, Group 1 with just four points to show from their efforts. The 11 Wolves home record over that time includes two draws and two losses, with just two goals scored. The majority of those have come in either qualifiers, of which they have lost both, or were in the Nations League. Over the past year, they have not won a single match, losing five times and drawing five others. Latvia come into this match in awful form. Not very good at all.

Israel play their home games in blue shirts and blue shorts, whilst they wear white shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels. Yossi Benayoun is the most famous and the most capped Israeli footballer and it has to be noted that the pacey midfielder played for the likes of Racing Santander, West Ham United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea in the past.

Highlighted Team (Israel):

Following a 3-1 loss to North Macedonia, the Baltic side suffered a 2-0 loss to Poland in their second group game, meaning that the lack of confidence could prove to be the teams biggest problem in Fridays clash against Israel. Latvia have been struggling in the Euro 2020 qualifiers. The Latvians are on a ten-man winless run in all competitions and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from the Israel game.

After analysing their recent H2H record, the Mighty Tips experts suggest wagering on the prospect of Israels win. Furthermore, their last triumph came in June 2018. The heavy investing has finally paid dividends as their rooster looks as good as ever. Latvia has been terrible in prior games as they are on a ten-game winless streak. Israel recorded a 4-2 win over Austria in March, therefore showing a big improvement.

Apparently, there are no absences of weight for this game. We emphasize that Latvia has not managed to win any of the last 10 games. On the other hand, Deniss Rakels is one of the most important men of this team, being responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process. The Latvian national team comes into this game with a 2-0 defeat in the move to Poland, registering the second consecutive defeat in this qualifying phase. In this difficult encounter with Israel, coach Slavisa Stojanovic must play in 4-3-3, with Gutkovskis being the most offensive reference of the local team: this player is very strong and competent in the air game.

Leading the line for Latvia will be Valerijs Sabala, the man that represents their very best chance of scoring a goal. The striker, who plays his football in Poland, has 12 goals in 51 international appearances so far. In goal, they will need a big performance from 33 year-old Pavels Steinbors, who looks to have finally unseated Andris Vanins as the #1.

This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 draws and 10 losses in away matches; against 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses at their stadium. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 matches, so there are defensive processes that need improvement. In the last 9 home matches Latvia has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses. In their first match in this group stage they lost out to FYR Macedonia, by (3-1). In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 6 of the last 9 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that scores only few times and was only able to open the scoring in 3 of its last 15 games, and never reached halftime advantage. In the 2nd round, they lost out to Poland by (2-0). The home team arrives at this 3rd day of Group G in the 6th position, without any points won, after 2 defeats. In 15 games, he never got the comeback in the 9 games in which he suffered the first goal.

English League Championship

In midfield, Israel are led by veteran captain Bibras Natcho. He has played 58 times for his nation, and the Olympiacos man can put a stop to any and all attacks simply by being in the correct position and the right time. The Guangzhou R&F man now has 12 goals in 44 caps, and will be a big threat to the hosts. Eran Zahavi will come into this match in absolutely stunning form, having scored a hat trick last time out against Austria.

With that being said, the visitors have started the group very well and will feel like a win here might just set them up for a playoff spot at the very least come the end of the stage. Expert Verdict: Latvia are underdogs here, to say the very least, even at home to an Israel side that isn't always the best. Latvia just haven't done enough in recent times, so it's hard to suggest they will be able to turn that around.
