Australia vs Latvia Match Preview

Australia, after registering a straight set victory over China in the Round of 16, faced stiffer competition in the quarterfinal against Canada. They took three sets to end the challenge of Canadians and emerge victorious with the scoreline reading 2-1 (21-15, 19-21, 15-12) in the favour of the Aussies.

Om the similar lines, Latvia too required the decider to edge past another Canadian team. The Latvian women, who already have created history, won 2-1 (21-13, 18-21, 15-11) to script a memorable victory and move within a touching distance to assure themselves of a medal in the country’s debut Olympics in women’s beach volleyball.

Australia vs Latvia Match Prediction

While it’s really difficult to choose between the two teams, going by mere gut feeling, it looks like Latvia’s dream run might come to a halt. Having said that, nobody expected them to make it this far and on paper they are surely the underdogs, so Latvia can play without the fear of losing. Nevertheless, Australia should win this 2-1 to ensure themselves at least a silver and set up the gold medal match date with either Switzerland or USA.
