FK Riga – FC Copenhagen Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

Their goal difference is also amazing 12-4 and averagely they are over 2.5. They are in great form and I believe that they want to show dominance in their field. So, I am expecting from them to score an early goal here and to lead this match from the beginning. Copenhagen has a perfect score with 6 wins from 6 games on the start of Danish Superliga. After the disappointment of the Red Star defeat in The Champions League, they are highly motivated for this clash.

They recorded 4 wins and 1 loss in the last 5 games. But unfortunately for them in the European competition, they are not at the same level as Copenhagen and they will struggle to have a good result after the first leg. Riga is also at the top spot in the Latvian Optibet Virsliga championship. Their main objective for the match will be fast counterattacks, and probably they will play aggressive in defense. I expect to see lots of fouls and yellows for the visitors at the Telia Parken.

The home team is the favorite by far to win this match, in their last 10 matches they added to their tally 8 wins and 2 draws, and are very good at home in front of their fans base. Riga FC had to fight good to be in this play off, they've had to go after the draw in their last elimination round to move forward and seem to be a team that gives it all...I think this match with end with more than 2 goals scored. This is the first leg between FC Koebenhavn, the home team, against Riga FC. Another match from UEFA Europa League play offs.

Copenhagen were more than unfortunate not to book their place in the Champions League play-offs as they suffered a loss to Serbian champions Crvena Zvezda on penalties in front of home fans. The Danish champions, though, are seen as hot favourites to win the double-header against Riga and seeing that they are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that Stale Solbakkens troops are going to emerge triumphant in the first leg.

The club forms great rivalry with Copenhagens suburban club Brondby IF with games between the two club attracting some of the biggest crowds in Danish football history in this so called New Firm derby. The Team of the City as Copenhagen is called in Denmark has won the Danish football championship eleven times, while it has also won the Danish Cup on seven occasions.

Riga, on the other hand, did well to eliminate Helsinki in the third qualifying round, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Thursdays football match against Stale Solbakkens charges. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Dame NDoye as key player from the last season Robert Skov left the club in the summer transfer window.

They will try to win this game to nil, and it will be their main objective before the rematch in Latvia. Copenhagen entering this clash with their minds still into the previous leg of the Champions League qualifiers where they as hosts suffered a tough loss on penalties (6-7, after 11 series) against Red Star Belgrade. Now they need to show that they are good enough for the group stage of the Europa League.

It has to be noted that he scored ten goals in 23 appearances for Ajax in the 2012/2013 Eredivisie campaign. Viktor is the grandson of former Danish football player Poul Pedersen. The Dutch forward played his first game for Ajax on 20 October 2012 in a 3-3 draw and he scored his first goal for the Dutch outfit on 31 October 2012 against ONS Sneek in the KNVB Cup. Both prefer to play on the wing, but Viktor Fisher is capable of playing as attacking midfielder or centre forward as well.

The guests away did only 1 defeat in the last 5 matches and lost by 1 goal. Copenhagen versus Riga is this match for the EL and it's a match for the final of the qualification. Hosts are better team and favourite but for me won't win easily and so my bet is the AH +1.5 FT on the guests. A match for the 1st leg between a team from Denmark and from Latvia. Hosts did 3 wins in the last 5 matches played at home but only 1 by more than 1 goal and this will be for me a balanced match.
