This coming Tuesday, Wales, and Latvia meet at Cardiff City Stadium in a qualifying match for the European Championship. It is expected to be an exciting event, as it is part of the second round of the qualifying stage. The last time these two sides facing off here came up against each other, Wales came away with a 0-2 win. Rest assured they have a similar outcome in mind at Cardiff City Stadium.

Concluding the first round of matches in this group, Wales have positioned themselves as number two on one point. Meanwhile, Latvia earned zero points, placing them as number four. Wales take on Latvia as number 28 in the FIFA world ranking, whereas the visitors sit as number 133 in the world.

Despite not winning, Wales still escaped from their initial group match feeling like winners. It was a surprise to see them gaining a point in a 1-1 draw away from home, but they know a lot of hard work in the European Championship still awaits.

It may be unrealistic to anticipate Wales topping their group; however, it would be surprising if they do not make it out of this group and qualify for the upcoming tournament. Latvia will never make it out of this group, but could perhaps be capable of stealing the odd point which for them would be considered a success.
