Team goals prediction: Hearts over 1.5 goals
Hearts won 2-nil away from home in the first leg against Rigas despite having the worst defence in the group. It is their only clean sheet so far. So, a home game against a side they have now learnt to beat should be another chance to make a statement in the competition albeit qualification for the playoffs could be hard. Bet on Hearts to score at least 2 goals in this second leg.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals
Secondly, we expect a higher number of goals in this second leg than in the first meeting. Hearts and Rigas have both flopped in the competition and it is largely due to defending problems. They have also failed to impress offensively. However, with hopes dwindling, especially for the visitors, they could leak even more goals in this second encounter with Hearts.
Correct score prediction: 3-0 to Hearts
A 2-0 away win for Hearts of Midlothian in the first leg was massive. Another win could edge the hosts closer to a playoff spot. The visitors have only 2 points and there has almost zero chance of qualifying for playoffs. We are tipping Hearts to win the game 3-0.
Hearts vs Rigas Europa Conference League Match Preview
Hearts must win the remaining two group stage matches to have any chances of qualifying for the Europa Conference League knockout stages. However, that will depend on how second-placed Fiorentina also perform in the next two games. With home support and a 2-0 win against Rigas in the first leg, we can only expect Hearts to turn up for another victory.
Two points from four games mean Rigas have almost zero chances of qualifying for playoffs, let alone winning this clash. To the visitors, the is little hope but with a 2-0 home loss against Hearts in the first leg, it feels as though they have no chance whatsoever in this trip to Scotland.
