Nations League: Latvia vs Andorra


In the UEFA Nations League 2020-21, Latvia and Andorra are in Group 1 of Group D along with Faroe Islands and Malta.  Remember that D is the last group in the complex UEFA Nations League system that is synonymous with the weakest teams in the old continent.

In group D there will be no relegation team (because there is no bottom group), but only the top team (2 groups) will be promoted to group C. Indeed in Group 1 group D, according to FIFA's latest national team rankings,  Malta is the team with the lowest ranking (180).  This is followed by Andorra (134), Latvia (133) and Faroe (102).

In the UEFA Nations League in the first season (2018-19), Latvia and Andorra were also in the same group (group D of course).  Remember at the reception of Andorra at home, Latvia accepted 1 1/2.  But this rematch, they only accept 1 draw.  With this adjustment, it can be seen that Latvia could no longer receive the trust of experts.

Looking back on the past, it is true that Latvia has been unbeaten in 5 matches against Andorra since 2008 but in the UEFA Nations League 2018-19, they drew this opponent with the same 0-0 score in both matches.

Last November, Latvia excelled at defeating Austria, which was much more appreciated 1-0 in the Euro 2020 qualifiers. However, it was the only victory of Dainis Kazakevi─Źs teachers and students in 19 matches.  nearest international from 6/2018.
