Riga vs Derry City: FREE Tips and Predictions
Latvian side, Riga FC, edge out Derry City of Ireland in the reverse game. The visitors have the challenge of overturning the defeat away from home. Will they do it against a more inspire side like Riga that is only a win away from moving to the next round of qualifier matches? Our best three tips for the game are:
Under 2.5 goals
This second meeting between Riga FC and Derry City is likely to be another low-scoring encounter. The hosts have not leaked more than two goals in any of their last ten games. Moreover, Riga FC hopes to defend their massive 2-nil win in the reverse game, so a strong defence will be critical in that quest. On the other hand, Derry City has equally not conceded more than two goals in any of their last ten games. And while a desire to avenge the 2-0 loss in the reverse leg burns hotter, the visitors look to defend better in this second leg.
We think the second leg of the first round in Europa Conference League qualifiers will play significance in determining the fate of both teams. The visitors couldn’t win in the reverse game, so even as they look to get a win here, the first half is likely to be a very tense 45 minutes with no breakthrough.
While Riga FC will be cautiously defending the 2-0 goal-advantage in the second leg, the visitors come to get a win. However, not much movement is expected upfront or it could end up in heavy punishment for either side. We think only one end of the pitch will have goals in this game.
Riga vs Derry City Match Preview
After a 2-0 victory in the first leg, Riga FC has home support to bank in the second leg. A red card to Derry City in the first leg was a boost to the hosts as Riga netted three minutes after Mathew Smith of Derry City picked a red card for violent conduct in the second half. However, the visitors will have a full squad for this second leg, so Riga FC must prepare for an even tougher challenge.
Derry City couldn’t make the most of home support in the first leg. A red card in the 65th minute compounded their misery. And while they should have prepared well for this second leg, winning against Riga away from home will not be easy.
