Latvia vs Moldova Betting Tips - Latvia to win /BTTS

The Latvians have enjoyed a superb run of form in recent months, and they enter this fixture currently unbeaten in their last 8 matches, including 5 successive straight victories ahead of this contest, leaving them top of the section with a 5-point cushion ahead of the visitors.

While the standard of opposition might not have been the strongest, Latvia began their current unbeaten run with a draw in Norway and, having endured a tough period in recent years, are now beginning to turn the corner.

Scoring 11 goals and leaking just 2 in wins against Liechtenstein (twice), Andorra, Azerbaijan and their opponents here, Moldova, Latvia, will be confident of maintaining their winning form.

Moldova, in contrast, remains one of the lowest ranked UEFA nations in the FIFA rankings, having won just 3 of their last 36 international matches. Although it should be noted, 2 of those 3 wins came in June against Liechtenstein and Moldova.

Now arriving in Riga 5 points behind Latvia, only a win will do for Moldova if they are to have any chance of catching the hosts but based on recent form, we expect Latvia to have too much quality, and a home win is expected.

Given the visitors' need for 3 points, a fairly open and entertaining contest can be expected, particularly given that 6 goals were scored in their last meeting earlier this year. 

Indeed, historically, all 4 previous meetings have seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored, with an average of 4.25 goals scored in those contests.

Ultimately, BTTS looks to offer the value here, with Moldova scoring 2 goals in both previous visits to Riga while they have also scored at least 1 goal in 5 of their last 7 away international matches.
