Having beaten Latvia 1-0 in Cardiff back in March, Wales are looking to do the double over the 11 Wolves when they meet at Skonto Stadium in Euro 2024 qualifying on Monday night.

It has been a tough recent run for head coach Robert Page and his side but this clash with Latvia could provide a change in fortunes for the Welsh, as they continue to adapt to life without iconic talisman Gareth Bale.

Team news

Starting with the hosts, Latvia will have to do without the influential Vladislavs Gutkovskis, who misses Monday’s game due to injury.

Gutkovskis scored eight goals in the World Cup qualifiers and Nations League campaigns and his absence will be felt by head coach Dainis Kazakevics.

Arturs Zjuzins and goalkeeper Pavels Steinbors have been forced to withdraw from the squad, while Raivis Jurkovskis is another notable absentee.

As for Wales, Luton Town skipper Tom Lockyer has picked up a late injury and won’t feature at Skonto Stadium.

Leeds United winger Daniel James is recovering from an injury he sustained at the start of the Championship season and has been left out of the squad by Page.

Wales veteran Aaron Ramsey is expected to wear the armband as Wales go in search of their second win in qualifying.

Wales to win and both teams to score (No) – 6/5

Wales have a good opportunity to get themselves back into the mix for the top two in Group D, as they prepare to face a Latvia side that have lost all of their four games so far.

The Welsh are only one place above Latvia in fourth in the table but are still just three points behind Croatia and Armenia.

If Wales are to make the European Championships next summer in Germany, they need to be winning games like these and they should have enough quality to overcome an injury-stricken Latvian side.

Without Gutkovskis, it’s hard to see where the goals are going to come from for the hosts.

With just three scored in their four qualifying games so far, goals have been hard to come by for the Latvians, so a Welsh win to nil is well worth considering.

Harry Wilson to score anytime – 11/5

A key figure now in the Welsh side, Harry Wilson is a player to look out for in the anytime goalscorer market.

The Fulham star has six goals to his name for Wales and the midfielder has also registered already in this qualifying campaign with a goal against Armenia.

A dead-ball specialist, Wilson should have opportunities in Monday’s game and has the ability to put at least one of those away in Riga.
