Dundalk vs Riga Match Preview
Dundalk have been in great shape and the thriller 2-2 draw at Derry City on Friday, where they conceded a last-gasp equalizer, only ended a nine-match winning streak across competitions as they now host Riga for their Champions League clash looking to bounce to it once again.
Lilywhites have been rock-solid in front of the home fans through most part of the year and they’ve bagged 11 wins and a draw in 12 outings here since February, which will surely have them looking for an all-important advantage here on Wednesday evening too.
Riga have, on the other hand, lost on their consistency lately and the Latvian fans will surely fear this could prove costly. They’ve been held off in a goalless draw against Valmiera / BSS on Thursday, which was the second time they’ve been denied a win in last three outings.
The visitors have struggled for consistency on the road and while they’ve beaten Liepaja (1-2) and Metta / LU (0-4) on their last two trips, the clash at Oriel Park surely looks like more of a challenge and this will be a worry for Mihails Konevs. They have been scoring goals, though, and will now surely want to find the net as well.
We still feel Dundalk should have what it takes to secure an advantage on the day and we’ll stick with them to bag a Home win here, which comes at 10/11 with bet365 and looks the best way to go about the market at this point.
We should be in for an exciting contest and with that in mind, we’re also going for goals on the day with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 5/4 with William Hill – which would be sixth such occasion in seven outings for Dundalk and fourth in five trips for Riga as well.
