Croatia vs Latvia Prediction 8 September 2023

Tournament: UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying
Location: Stadion HNK Rijeka, Rijeka
Match date: 09/08/2023 at 19:45

Another match of the Euro 2024 qualifying matchday 5 is scheduled for next Friday, in which Croatia will test Latvia for strength.

Last summer, Croatia stopped short of winning the Nations League - having beaten the Netherlands 4:2 in the semi-final, the Checkered lost 0:1 to Spain in the decisive battle. But as part of the qualification for the Euro, they shared points with Wales (1:1), and also took down Turkey (2:0).

Having got into not the most difficult group, Latvia is still the main underdog in it. Three fiascos from Wales (0:1), Turkey (2:3) and Armenia (1:2) are a clear confirmation of this. Back in 2023, the Red-White-Reds were remembered for their 2-3 loss to Ireland in a friendly match.

We doubt very much that in a duel with the bronze medalist of the World Cup, Latvia will interrupt its unsuccessful streak. Rather, Croatia will begin to close the gap from the leaders of the quintet, and a confident victory over the underdog will obviously not interfere with it.
