Austria vs Latvia Match Preview
Austria are embroiled in what looks to be a four-way battle for one place at Euro 2020 and can boost their chances of qualifying with a home victory against Latvia.
Group G is one of the most open pools but Poland are well on their way to finishing top of the table as they are five points clear with a 100% record after four of 10 rounds of matches.
Israel are second, but Austria are right in the thick of the fight for the runners-up berth that will also yield a spot at next summer’s tournament with Slovenia and North Macedonia also in contention.
Latvia are the whipping boys and have scored only one goal and conceded 13 in losing all of their four matches so far, with Austria the only team they have yet to face.
Having contested Euro 2016, although they made an early exit, Austria will be keen for another taste of a major competition and manager Franco Foda must be hoping Marko Arnautovic’s move to China this summer has not dulled his competitive nature.
The Austrians should be comfortably too good here and a decisive victory can set them up for what will be a much more difficult test away to Poland on Monday.
