Netherlands – Statistics & Current Form
The team of coach Frank de Boer had imagined the start of the World Cup qualification very differently. Holland lost 2: 4 to Turkey. The team, with players like de Ligt, de Jong, Wijnaldum and Depay actually very prominent, made numerous mistakes, especially defensively.
That should now change against Latvia, a clear outsider. Before the game of Holland against Latvia, the odds of the best bookmakers show that it is definitely worthwhile to deal with a high victory for the “Elftal”. Because a tip on a simple home win is “rewarded” with vanishingly low betting odds.
It comes as no surprise that the Dutch are the clear favorites. After all, Latvia is a real football dwarf by comparison and our neighboring country has yet another generation that can cause a sensation at a major tournament. Only once the qualification has to be achieved. Holland was absent from three of the last five World Cup tournaments (2002 and 2018).

Is Holland celebrating a shooting festival?
Even if the start went wrong for Holland: With Latvia, Gibraltar, Norway and Montenegro, besides Turkey, beatable opponents are on the program. Against Latvia, which is very vulnerable defensively and individually inferior, a very clear result could be on the horizon. Good results are also very important with regard to the upcoming European Championship in summer, for which all information can be found on a betting basis.
The game against Latvia will be completely different in any case. Before the Turkey game, there were five games in a row without a defeat for the hosts. Because of the offensive power and superiority before the Holland vs Latvia game, our prediction is that more than 3.5 goals are scored will.
A changeover is quite possible. Because against an inferior opponent, Holland has more chances and could benefit from a penalty area striker. Luuk de Jong, who came off the bench against Turkey, should appear here from the start. In any case, a win is mandatory due to the starting position.
Expected formation of Holland:
Krul – Tete, de Ligt, Blind, van Aanholt – de Jong, van de Beek, Wijnaldum – Bergwijn, Depay, de Jong

Latvia – statistics & current form
Latvia is a huge underdog in this game. The guests belong to the smaller football nations in Europe, but did not play so badly at the beginning. At home to Montenegro, Latvia only lost 2-1. That was a kind of respectable success for the selection of coach Dainis Kazakevics.
How clear the inferiority of the Baltic nation is on paper is shown by the odds of a victory for the guests before the game between Holland and Latvia. This is 101.00 for the bookmaker Betsson tested by Wettbasis! So a success would be a big sensation.
In the international match year 2020 there was only one defeat for Latvia. It should also be mentioned here that five of the eight games in the calendar year ended in a draw and the opponents were called Andorra, Malta and Faroe Islands due to their classification in the Nations League. In other words: Latvia has not had anything to do with a caliber from the Netherlands for a long time.

Latvia is hoping the defense will hold up
Due to the opponents in the last calendar year, it is also not very informative to take a closer look at Latvia’s conceded goal statistics. The team never conceded more than one goal, but that is not meaningful. In any case, Latvia recently played with a 4-4-2 system, which is unlikely to apply this time. A slightly more defensive basic orientation should be the method of choice.
Much depends on how Latvia’s defensive works. The earlier a goal is scored for the hosts, the greater the risk of debacle. The persistence factor is also a relevant one, because Latvia will have to lag a lot behind. Therefore, before the game Holland against Latvia is ours Tip that more than 3.5 goals will be scored will. Further tips about qualifying for the World Cup can be found on a betting basis.
Expected formation of Latvia:
Steinbors – Savalnieks, Oss, Maksimenko, Cernomordijs, Jurkovskis – Zjuzins, Tobers, Kames, Ciganiks – Ikaunieks
