Latvia vs Armenia Lineups and Last Match

Latvia

Latvia suffered their fifth straight defeat of the Euro 2024 qualifiers last time out when they played host to Wales. The visitors scored a goal in each half to claim a comfortable 2-0 victory in the end. Latvia will be looking to the likes of Janis Ikaunieks and Roberts Uldrikis to provide the goals on Thursday but beating Armenia will be tough as the visitors have secured 7pts in qualifying so far.

Predicted Lineup – Ozols (GK), Dubra,  Savaļnieks, Cigaņiks, Černomordijs, J. Ikaunieks, Emsis, Tobers, Jaunzems, Uldriķis & Krollis

Armenia

Armenia suffered a narrow defeat at home to Group D favourites Croatia in their last qualifying match. A solitary 13th-minute effort from Kramaric proved enough for the visitors to win the game in the end, causing Armenia to slip one place to third in the table. Ranos and Zelarayan have both scored two goals in qualifying so far and will fancy their chances of finding the back of the net against a leaky Latvia defence.

Predicted Lineup – Čančarević (GK), Calisir, Tiknizyan, Mkrtchyan, Harutyunyan, Dashyan, Zelarayán, Bichakhchyan, Spertsyan, Iwu & Ranos 

What is Twitter saying about Latvia vs Armenia

The Armenia players are having fun before the game…

Player to Watch: Grant-Leon Ranos

Armenia's young forward has made a very bright start to life as an international footballer, scoring 4-goals in his first five caps.

The 20-year-old plays his club football for Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga where he has made two substitute appearances in his breakthrough season since making the move from Bayern Munich reserves earlier this year.

We like what we have seen from Ranos and fully expect the young forward to impress once again for his country it what should end up being a victory that takes Armenia onto 10pts for the campaign.
