The Baltic Cup brings another interesting duel tonight!
Estonia and Latvia started the Baltic Cup by winning games against Lithuania. These are the games from the 2020 tournament that have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This national team tournament is one of the oldest in Europe that took place for the first time in 1928. So tonight the tradition continues with the second round of the 19th Baltic Cup.
Estonia is on the winning streak this month since they beat Lithuania in the Baltic Cup game with 0:1, and after that, they won Finland as well with the result of 0:1 in the friendly match. Thomas Häberli knows that his team has great players capable of great games, with qualities on both ends of the pitch, offensive and defensive. This is why even though the Estonians don’t score plenty of goals, they collect points from the games. The match against Lithuania was balanced in terms of the number of passes, ball possession, and goal-scoring attempts. But the Blue and Blacks were focused defensively through the whole match, and also focused at the right moment at their best offensive chance, and managed to score the winning goal.
Latvia experienced a huge blow at their last friendly match against the national team of Germany with a score of 7:1. This could mean that the Burgundy squad needs a little recovery in order to get back on the winning track. Dainis Kazakevičs’ team knows how to play good football, and the real example for that was the last game from the Baltic Cup against Lithuania, where the Litvanians won in the uncertain duel. So tonight's match against Estonia must be the right game to come back in good form and competitive spirit.
We are expecting a great football fight, with plenty of duels on every corner of the field. Because both teams are heading for the 3 points of this game, we believe that goal chances will be created on both ends. So the winner is highly uncertain since the teams are very balanced in terms of quality. We expect it to be under 2,5 goals in total. So tune in and witness the outcome of this very unpredictable match that generates big excitement for the Baltic football fans.
