We're kicking off a new week on FBOTD, and Kevin Hatchard is taking us to Latvia.
"Liechtenstein have lost 14 of their last 15 games, and have conceded 55 goals in the process."
Back Latvia to win, Over 2.5 Goals and Over 4.5 Home Corners at 2.447/5
Comfortable win for hosts
Latvia v Liechtenstein

Our chum Tobias was on the wrong end of a consolation goal last night, as Manchester United winger Anthony Elanga grabbed a 92nd-minute goal for Sweden in their 2-1 home defeat to Norway. He must now nurse some very expensive drinks as he begins his week off.
We'll put together a Nations League Bet Builder to start our week, because Latvia are up against Liechtenstein, and anything but a comfortable home win would be a surprise.
Liechtenstein are having a tough time of it at the moment, despite the advent of a Nations League that was supposed to make life a bit easier. They have lost 14 of their last 15 matches including friendlies, and they have leaked a whopping 55 goals in that spell. Eight of those 15 matches have featured at least three goals, and heavy defeats against the Faroe Islands (5-1) and Cape Verde (6-0) suggest this is a defence that can collapse against anyone.
Latvia started their latest Nations League campaign with a 3-0 win over Andorra, and they managed a pair of 3-1 wins against Gibraltar in the World Cup qualifiers. Although Latvia are not exactly an international powerhouse, those results suggest they can score goals consistently against teams a level below them.
Latvia should dominate this game, so I'll back them to win, Over 2.5 Goals in the match and Over 4.5 Corners for the home side at 2.447/5 on the Bet Builder. In their two wins over Gibraltar and their success against Andorra, Latvia secured at least five corners every time.
