An interesting clash is coming up for the Euro 2020 Qualifying, Austria is expected to guarantee three points as they are trying to get a place at the tournament. The host got two wins and two losses coming from their opening matchups so far, it’s fortunate that they will face off with Latvia, the club that is currently at the bottom side in this table. Austria will take it as an opportunity to take the win and move into the top two in their chance to have a position in the Euros this summer, and they have to live up to their home soil for this upcoming game. It’s only a point interval for the top two as we approach in the middle point of the tournament, but the question is, will the host guarantee a third consecutive win?

Austria’s poor start encourages them to manage and recover for a comeback by grabbing back to back victories, seeing off North Macedonia and Slovenia. This performance shifted them back as a contender for the Euros, however, they will need to end this matchup with a high note. Coming from the last on the road game, the host should have the boost it needed, they were given a hard time in their bid to make the world cup 2018. They ended with a great performance with two victories to finish off, prior to the two wins coming from the four nations league games.

Latvia had lost all of the four qualifying rounds so far, and they failed to have a goal in three coming from their four games. The visitors had a hard time from last year, unfortunately, the six games coming from the Nations League was failed. Just like the opponents Andorra and Kazakhstan, they still struggle and lost to both. This only shows how Latvia is unprepared and will going to clash with Austria.
