Germany vs Latvia prediction on June 05, 2021. Germany’s last friendly match before the Euros is welcoming Latvia. The “Tank” has never been as skeptical as this year, especially after the confusing decision to announce the replacement of the head coach after the end of the tournament. Latvia has never been a worthy opponent, but not so that Germany will have an easy match.
After the 2018 World Cup was eliminated from the group stage, Germany gradually lost their position and faith in captain Joachim Low. Overcoming the Euro qualifiers with first place in Group C, the attack is a bright spot with 30 goals after 8 matches. However, the situation of attacking and breaking is getting worse and worse, the main reason is that the defense is slow and there is no adjacent layer.
Consecutive disappointing results such as a 0-6 defeat to Spain in the Nations League or a humiliating 1-2 loss to North Macedonia in the last WC qualifier. Meeting Latvia is an opportunity for strikers to shine, but Germany’s ability to keep clean sheets is not appreciated.
After the poor results in the Euro qualifiers, Latvia appointed Kazakevics as head coach and immediately brought positive results. 12 matches received only 3 defeats, Lavia just drew Turkey 3-3 in the World Cup qualifiers and had a jubilant 3-1 victory over Lithuania. The attack played well, making up to 6 goals in the last 2 matches, and can completely make things happen.
However, the ability to limit the number of goals against Germany is still a huge question mark. The last 3/5 matches of Latvia have 4 or more goals, showing the open playing trend of this team.
Asian Bet – Germany vs Latvia prediction
Latvia is showing quite significant progress when unbeaten in 7/10 recent international matches. Before the top opponents in Europe, the army of coach Marians Pahars did not have to receive too big defeats. With a rather relaxed mentality, Latvia can cause certain difficulties for the German team. Of course, the goal of the away team is still to concede as few goals as possible.
Germany vs Latvia Prediction:
- Choose Germany (HT)
- Choose Latvia + 3.75 (FT)
Joachim Loew is still having some problems in terms of force when the ability to play Gundogan, Kroos, or Havert is still open. It is likely that Germany will still believe in using young players. Therefore, it is expected to be a victory not too different for the tanks.
Choose Germany (FT)
Over/Under Bet – Germany vs Latvia prediction
Since Mikolas Klose retired, Germany is still facing many problems in their central position. Timo Werner today is still being too ungrateful while Muller is not a true number 9. In the last 3 matches, the tanks could not score more than 1 goal/match even though the opponents were quite weak like Denmark or Macedonia. In addition to not exerting too much strength to avoid injury, it is difficult to expect that Joachim Loew’s men will play jubilantly.
Germany vs Latvia Prediction:
- Choose Over (HT)
- Choose Under 4.5 (FT)
Germany: Manuel Neuer; Lukas Klostermann, Joshua Kimmich, Florian Neuhaus, Robin Gosens; Matthias Ginter, Niklas Sule, Mats Hummels; Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry.
