Latvia vs Moldova – Latvia is currently the best team in the group, having a perfect winning record thus far. They are going for promotion to the higher level on Thursday at home and only need a draw to do so. The odds are not good for Moldova, who finished second.
With only two games left, the Moldovans must catch up to the leaders who they are currently trailing by five points. This implies that they must win the final two games while also needing the leaders to lose the final two games.
The Moldovans, however, are already exempt from relegation, which allows them the luxury to take chances and aim for a victory on Thursday. However, this is exactly what the Latvian hosts would prefer.
They could win the group with even a draw, so they can afford to sit back and play defence. Their opponents, for whom a win is a must, will need to open up space at the back and start scoring right away. The hosts will cleverly capitalise on these defensive errors.
In addition, the Latvians have an excellent history against this opponent, particularly while playing in front of their own supporters. For these reasons, come Thursday, Latvia is predicted to win.
