Latvia and Gibraltar, two teams that have already been eliminated from contention for a spot in the FIFA World Cup 2022 lock horns at Victoria Stadium for the last time in this qualifying campaign on Tuesday.
Gibraltar have faced nine back-to-back defeats in their qualifying campaign, including a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Turkey on Saturday. Latvia haven't fared much better and have just one win to their name but managed to hold Norway to a goalless draw on Saturday.
While there's nothing much at stake in this game, it offers a last chance for the hosts to save face, as they have conceded a whopping 40 goals in nine games and even a single point here would provide them with a morale boost.
Gibraltar vs Latvia Head-to-Head
There have been three meetings between the two sides so far, with two of them being friendlies. They have met just once in a competitive fixture, with that game coming at Daugava Stadium in Riga in September.
The game ended in a 3-1 win for 11 vilki, which was their only win of the qualifying campaign.

Gibraltar vs Latvia Prediction
Gibraltar's poor defensive record in the qualifying campaign has been a concern for them and we don't expect them to shore up their leaky defense for the last game of the campaign.
Latvia have also scored just one goal in their last five games, so we don't expect them to have a high-scoring outing here. We expect this to end in a low-scoring draw.
Prediction: Gibraltar 1-1 Latvia
