Latvia and Poland meet at Daugavas Stadionā, in a match for this phase of the Qualification Round for the European Championship (Qualifying Round). Particular attention is needed for the home / away condition, since both teams have significantly different results at home and abroad.
The home team is currently in the 6th position, with no points conquered, after 6 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost out against Austria by (6-0). In the last match, he lost at home against the FYR of Macedonia by (0-2). This is a stronger team with the support of their fans, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 draws and 10 losses as a visitor, with 8 goals scored and 30 suffered; against 3 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses in his stadium, with 11 goals scored and 30 suffered. In its last 8 home matches, Latvia records 1 win, 2 draws and 5 losses.
For this competition, record a sequence of 6 losses in their last matches. His defense has not been very solid, since he suffered at least one goal in each of the last 6 matches, and his attack has not been very effective, since he did not score goals in 5 of the last 6 matches for this competition. This is a team that usually scores a few times first: it only opened the scoring in 2 of its last 15 games, and never reached the break in advantage. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 11 times and never got the comeback.
The selection of Latvia is in the last position of the group. The team has failed to score any points in the competition so far. Despite playing as a local team in the next game he will face many difficulties, as he will face the leader of his group. For this reason, it will be important to change your position in the field. In the last round, Latvia ended up being defeated by Macedonia by the score of 2×0. The coach should not have great absences for this match.
The visiting team is currently in 1st position, with 13 points won, after 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat. In the penultimate match, he lost out against Slovenia by (2-0). In the last match, they tied at home against Austria by (0-0). This is a team that curiously conquers more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 matches it records 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses as a visitor, with 22 goals scored and 15 suffered; against 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in his stadium, with 19 goals scored and 17 suffered. In its last 6 away matches, Poland records 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. His defense has been very solid, since he only suffered goals in 1 of the last 6 games for this competition. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 7 times and never got the comeback.
Until now, Poland leads the group and hopes to remain at the top of the leaderboard. The goal is to add the three points in this next match, as it will act against a technically very weak team. In the last round, Poland did not achieve more than a draw at home against Austria, by 0x0. The coach must enter the field with a very competitive team.
