The 2nd legs of the 1st round matches of the Champions League will be played on Wednesday night and our next featured match sees Latvian outfit, Riga, taking on Irish side, Dundalk as the betting tips continue at the RTU stadions.

Riga Prediction – Can Riga make most of home advantage?

After playing out a 0-0 draw in last week’s 1st leg in Ireland at the Oriel Park, Riga will now return to home turf for this 2nd leg decider.

The hosts will be hoping they can make more of home advantage than their Irish opponents did last week, and progress to the next round.

They’ll also be bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this Champions League tie having registered 2 wins and 2 draws in recent weeks.

Wins over Meta/LLU in the Latvian Virsliga 4-0 and a resounding 6-0 win away at Super Nova in the domestic cup should bring Riga confidence here.

They’ve also picked up a point in a 0-0 draw at home with Valmiera/BSS in the league and held Dundalk to a goalless draw in the 1st leg.

These last 4 matches have also seen Riga record 4 clean sheets as well, so the hosts will be confident they can keep things tight at the back again in this return leg.

Dundalk Prediction – Can Dundalk pull off memorable win in Latvia?

The visitors also sit top of their domestic league as they hold an 8-point margin over 2nd placed Shamrock Rovers.

However, having won 10 of their 12 league matches so far this season, there must be a feeling of disappointment as they failed to win last week’s 1st leg.

Dundalk could only muster a 0-0 draw at Oriel Park and now find themselves facing a tough trip to Latvia where they’ll be up against a solid Riga outfit.

Although they bring an impressive 17-match unbeaten sequence into this clash, Dundalk may be up against it in this 2nd leg.

The visitors do bring a 6-match run without defeat though into this 2nd leg so they too will be confident of getting a result here.

This is all well and good of course for Dundalk whose results over this 17-match period have predominantly been on the domestic scene.

But switch to results away from home in the Champions League and the story changes dramatically for the visitors.

A 5-match run without a win on the road in this competition includes defeats at BATE (twice) and a loss at Rosenborg.


Key-Facts – Riga v Dundalk

  • Riga have kept clean sheets in each of their last 4 matches overall
  • Riga have lost just 1 of their last 8 matches at home in all competitions
  • Dundalk are without an away win from their last 5 away ties in the CL


Betting Tips Verdict

Riga recorded a solid result away in the 1st leg and now hold home advantage where they might just edge this.
