Latvia and Austria will do battle to determine which nation can guarantee its place in Group I for 2015. The loser of this tie - the first time these nations have faced each other - will play either Sweden or Romania in a relegation play-off in October.
Slovak Republic have been responsible for the defeats of both of these nations in this year's competition in two hard-fought ties. Latvia lost 5-0 in a first round tie that was closer than the scoreline suggested, with Andis Juska going down 86 in the final set of his match with Martin Klizan. After receiving a bye through the first round, Austria suffered a 4-1 defeat but also ran the Slovak team very close, losing out in a fifth set in both the second and third rubbers.
