Latvia to win the first game of the competition

Lithuania opened the competition against Estonia but lost despite being the favourites. Losing against a team that has the least Baltic Cup titles signals more trouble for the visitors who play their second game of the campaign against the reigning champions. Moreover, Latvia has the most titles (13) in the Baltic Cup competition and should be a tough opponent as they seek to retain their 2018 crown. Lithuania has lost in all four trips to Latvia since 2012 and we don’t see that changing in this fixture.

Latvia to open the scoring

Latvia should also open the scoring in this game. We expect Dainis Kazakevics to field his strongest starting eleven if he is to go far in this competition. Most importantly, scoring early in the game will be an assurance of getting more goals before the final whistle. And with more goals in their first game, the returning champions can easily edge out Estonia from the top.

Goals on both ends

Our third prediction is goals on both ends. While Lithuania finished third in the last Baltic Cup tournament in 2018, we expect tough opposition from the visitors as they seek to prevent a second defeat in the 2021 campaign. With that in mind, both coaches should field their best starting lineup. Lithuania has netted twice in their previous four away trips to Latvia.

Game Preview: Can Lativia Retain the Baltic Cup Title?

This is a fixture between a team that won Baltic Cup  in 2018 and one that finished last. While it doesn’t create a lot of excitement based on that history, it should be remembered that both teams have the most Baltic Cup titles. With that, we expect stiff competition on Friday.

Latvia

The hosts have won the Baltic Cup a record 13 times, and ruling them out as returning champions could be the worst mistake to make at this point. Latvia boasts of four victories in six previous encounters with Lithuania and we expect an even stronger start to the 2021 campaign for Dainis Kazakevics and his squad. Dainis Kazakevics has been in charge of Latvia since January 2020, during which he has lost 3 games, drawn 6 and won 2 after eleven fixtures. Such stats are worrying especially when Latvia prepares to host Lithuania, a team with 10 titles in the competition. The hosting manager averages 1.09 points per match after 11 games.

Lithuania

Despite a 1-0 loss to Estonia at the start of the campaign, Lithuania’s history in this competition speaks for itself. The visitors have 10 titles and hope to prevent a second defeat in round 1 of the 2021 campaign. Lithuania is ranked 134 by FIFA, four places above Latvia. Moreover, the visiting manager, Valdas Urbonas averages 0.86 points per match, a poor record that largely arises from his side’s weak defence.
