Latvia have played one and lost one so for in qualifying suffering a 1-0 loss in Cardiff to Wales back in March so will be looking to get their qualifying campaign on track here. It is six without a victory (in 90 minutes) and they have won just one of their previous 22 UEFA European Championship qualifiers.

Turkey have had mixed start to qualifying recording a 2-1 success on the road to Armenia in the opener before going down to a 2-0 home loss to Croatia. The Turks were in the 2020 finals but lost each of the three fixtures in their group.

Latvia vs Turkey match stats

Each of the last three Latvia home games (and five of the last seven) have seen both teams score so this looks a good bet especially as Turkey have not failed to net in an away game since November 2020. It also happened in both meetings between these sides in World Cup qualifying.

Another bet that catches the eye is this game to be level at half-time as this has been the case in three of the last four home matches for Lativa. It is also the case in the last two away for Turkey including being goalless at the interval against the Faroe Islands.

All three goals scored by Kerem Akturkoglu in World Cup qualifying were openers so this is something to look out for when the player markets open. These two sides have also met recently in 2022 World Cup qualifying with these meetings producing a total of nine goals.
