Total goals over 3.5

The Netherlands lost in the opening group game, but they still managed to come out with two goals. The tally could have been higher if not for a missed penalty by Memphis Depay. Against a weaker opponent like Latvia, the Dutch could end up scoring a lot more goals. Even though Latvia’s defensive record in recent games has been quite good, they are likely to struggle by setting them against Frank de Boer’s men.

Both teams to score – yes

The Netherlands saw their form extend even further following the loss to Turkey. The game exposed the defensive problems for the Dutch, who have now conceded in each of the last five games. Latvia may be more than 120 places behind Netherlands in the FIFA world rankings, but the team has shown enough grit to expect a goal or two. Latvia could also profit from the Netherlands struggles at the back, which is a common theme with a team managed by Frank de Boer.

Memphis Depay to score 1st

Memphis Depay failed to score from the spot in the loss to Turkey. The Lyon forward has been unable to score for more than a month with his last goal coming against Brest in February. Despite his poor form, Depay is a good pick to score 1st considering the odds and the strength of the opposition.

Netherlands vs Latvia: Team News and Match Preview

Netherlands

Netherlands’ disappointing form on the Frank de Boer continues with the team losing the opening group game against Turkey. The loss puts a greater amount of pressure on the former Atlanta United manager, whose team take on two-week opposition – Latvia and Gibraltar – in subsequent games to finish off the March round of international fixtures. So far, the team has not been let down going forward and this holds the hope for the Netherlands in the upcoming games. The Dutch also have to improve their form ahead of the European championships in June.

Latvia

Latvia’s narrow defeat against Montenegro will not be of huge concern for a team that does not have aspirations about qualifications for the World Cup. However, the performance against Montenegro will be a huge motivation for the team going forward. Latvia have had some decent results, which have mostly come against teams around them in the FIFA rankings. Dainis Kazakevics would consider a close fight against the Netherlands as a huge success ahead of his team’s impending game against Turkey.
