Linfield Double Chance (Win or Draw)

Reason for tip

Riga have failed to win each of their last three home games while the visitors come into this clash full of confidence after opening their domestic campaign with a 4-0 win. The disparity in prices suggests that the value could be with the outsiders.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

While Linfield may be good value to pick up a positive result, a win may be a bridge too far given that Riga have proven plucky even whilst not winning in recent home games.

Riga FS vs Linfield Predictions

  • Latvia and Northern Ireland are ranked just four places apart in UEFA’s country rankings.
  • Rigas failed to win two of their four European qualifiers this term.
  • Linfield opened their domestic season with a dominant 4-0 victory.

Rigas look to make their mark in this play-off

Beginning their European campaign in the Champions League, Rigas have since dropped down into the Europa Conference League qualifiers after tasting defeat against Helsinki in an earlier tie.

The only thing standing in Rigas’ way of a group stage appearance now is Northern Irish outfit Linfield, a side that have already defeated Champions League hopefuls Bodo/Glimt earlier in qualifying!

Rigas have home advantage for this first leg encounter, but for how much that matters remains to be seen as they’re currently without a win in three straight home games. One of those games was a qualifier against Maltese outfit Hibernians, arguably weaker than their opponents this time around.

Going for the value

The prices on the early tissue simply do not represent value if backing the home win.

We predict that Linfield can take a positive result from this first-leg encounter in the double chance market, they’ve already shown that they can mix it with bigger sides against Bodo, and the confidence of a 4-0 opening league win will serve them well here.

As for the correct score, we’re sticking with a small stakes bet on the 1-1 draw.
