Meanwhile, Riga FC looked amazing in the previous season, having pleased their fans enormously. At the moment the club is sitting on the second position in the Latvian SynotTip Virsliga table with 28 points collected after 14 rounds behind. The team produces massive play in attack, having scored 19 goals, still, its defense is also doing alright with nine goals conceded. In the recent away battles Riga FC celebrated two victories over Super Nova and Valmiera with the same 2:0 scoreline, but lost 1:2 to RFS.
CSKA Sofia have never compete with Riga FC before. Although it is hard to give an advantage to any of the upcoming rivals, still, “Армейците” are more experienced and shouldn’t fail at the home ground.
Prediction for the match: CSKA Sofia to win with -1.0 Asian handicap.
