Portugal vs Latvia Prediction 13 November 2016

On November 13 2016 at 17:00 in the upcoming game of the fourth round of the 2018 World Cup qualification Portugal national team meet Latvia national team.

Portugal national team didn’t show their best performance at the previous Euros in Brazil where they finished competing on the group stage. Their best result at the World Cup is the third place at the international forum in England in 1966. In the current qualifiers Portugal started with a loss to their main competitor for the first place in the group. Portugal lost to Switzerland 2:0 on the first round and after that outplayed Andorra 6:0 and Faroe Islands 0:6, which are both the outsiders of the competition.

Latvia national team didn’t make it to the final part of the World Cup and were kicked-off from the qualification stage. Latvia have never been considered to be a serious competitor and nobody is even thinking of their making it to the final part of the World Cup. In the current qualification they outplayed Andorra 0:1 in the first round and after that lost to Faroe Islands 0:2, Hungary 0:2. Consequently, after 3 games played Latvia have 3 points and the 5th place in the standings of the group.

The teams played four times before and Portugal won all of those games without any exceptions. We think that it’s not necessary to talk about the level and the class of the teams. Portugal lost to their most serious rivals in the group and that is why they are to win the other games not to lose a position on the top of the group. Considering the fact that Portugal have already scored 12 goals in the 3 games played, we think that in the upcoming match they will win with at least three goals difference.

Prediction for the match: Portugal to win with -2.5 handicap.
