Latvia vs Netherlands
Pick: Netherlands (-2,5 AH)
FT: 0:1 (LOST) (LOST) (LOST)
Match between Latvia and Netherlands. Huge difference in quality here, everything is on the side of visitors, so here I expect one easy and big victory for them.
Latvia have 1-2-3 so far. In that 6 games, they had scored 7 and conceded 10 goals. They won against Gibraltar which was for expectation, they made two surprises 3:3 against Turkey and 0:0 against Montenegro, but I doubt that they will be able for a surprise here. They have poor roster and Netherlands is few levels above them.
Netherlands have 4-1-1 so far and with 13 points they are leaders, but Norway and Turkey are close, so they must stay concentrated and here all except one big win will be a surprise for me. In that 6 games they had scored 22 and conceded 6 goals. Their defense is strong, they have van Dijk, de Vrij, midfield also very good, strong players, attack is also deadly with Depay and few other, young, talented strikers. Simply, they are best team in this group and I expect 3+ goals from them.
They played in second round, then Netherlands won at home against Latvia with only 2:0. Now, I expect even bigger victory for them. Good luck !
