Riga vs Dundalk Match Preview
Dundalk fans still hope for a Champions League campaign reminiscent of their best ever run as they take on a trip to Latvia but the goalless draw in the first leg hardly feels like a great boost to their confidence, regardless of the fact Vinny Perth’s men have been the better side through most part of the match.
Lilywhites have been in great shape lately and not converting their first-half chances will not be the end of the world, as they travel to Stadions Skonto on the back of a 17-match unbeaten streak and extending it could be enough to make it through to the 2nd Qualifying Round.
Riga have failed to make late chances count and now have to look for goals in front of the home fans. The 0-6 win over Super Nova in the Cup will be reinforcing, not only for their convincing win but for the defensive setup and the fourth clean sheet in a row since late June.
Mihails Konevs’ men have proven their worth but have a lot more to prove if they’re to make it past the Irish rivals, which does promise another narrow occasion in the making together with high stakes involved. They’ve been very solid at this ground and now come as slight favourites.
However, we feel Dundalk come into the match in a great mood and we’ll now stick our necks out for them to stay unbeaten after 90 minutes, as we go for a Draw at 21/10 with bet365 which is more probable to send the visitors through than not.
Indeed, we feel we’re in for few goals between them once again and this also has us going for a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT – which comes off as more of a banker bet at 8/13 with 22bet and has caught the eye of many big hitters.
