The two teams will once again compete in League D, the lowest rung in the competition, in the hopes of achieving an unlikely promotion against the odds.

Latvia Vs Andorra Tips and Prediction
In September 2020, Latvia and Andorra played out a goalless draw to begin their 2020-21 Nations League season.
That was the first of three stalemates for Dainis Kazakevics’s team in the competition, which was eventually broken when Malta won in the 97th minute of the fourth game.
While only losing one game was a good, they will need to find a method to win more games this season rather than settle for a tie.
If there is one thing that is certain, it is that Latvia has a lot of work ahead of them if they are to reclaim their past glory of almost qualifying for the 2010 World Cup.
While Kazakevics and his teammates may be dissatisfied with their single victory last season, it was still one more than Andorra.
Europe’s perennial underdogs failed once more, managing only two points and a single goal.
Els Tricolors’ triumph over San Marino last year, which was aided by a brace from centre-back Marc Vales, was only their fourth competitive victory since their international debut in 1996.
Koldo Alvarez, who has been in charge for 12 of those 26 years, will be sure to remind his players of the surprises they’ve pulled off in the past, like as their surprise win against Hungary during World Cup qualification.
Andorra will undoubtedly require a few more performances like that if they are to be promoted to League C next season, but they come into this game having won their two friendlies in 2022, against Grenada and Saint Kitts and Nevis.
Last season’s stalemate specialists face a team that hasn’t been involved in a stalemate in nine games. We expect that streak to continue, as Latvia should be able to easily defeat their inferior opponents, although they might score a goal.
