Riga vs Twente predictions and betting tips
FC Twente won the reverse leg but will have to work harder to defend the lead when they make this trip to Skonto in Riga, Latvia. Here are the best Riga vs Twente predictions:
FC Twente to Win
In the first Riga vs Twente prediction, we have settled on the visitors to make it two wins from the two rounds. Twente dominated Riga in the first leg by 71% possession and had 11 shots on target. Riga had only three shots on target and two corner kicks against 8 corner kicks for the hosts. In short, Twente were all over the place in the first leg and hence likely to win this second leg too.
Both Teams to Score
In another Riga vs Twente prediction, we are backing both teams to score. The first leg ended with FC Twente scoring while Riga failed to score. However, a home game and only one loss in the last five games, four of which are victories, means Riga will be in a good position to score in this second leg in as much we have tipped FC Twente to win it.
Over 2.5 Goals
In the final Riga vs Twente prediction, our prediction is on the overs/unders betting market. The fact that we have tipped BTTS and FC Twente to win means the probability of a at least three goals in this game is high. Bet on over 2.5 goals full-time when Riga FC hosts FC Twente on Thursday 17th August 2023.
Riga vs Twente: Will FC Twente defend a 2-0 lead from the first leg?
The only previous meeting between Riga and Twente ended in favour of Twente who play at home and won 2-0. The Dutch side hope they can win in this second leg when they travel to Latvia.
On the other hand, it is the only chance for Riga FC to advance further in the contest. A direct placement in the playoffs means Riga must win this second leg by at least 2 goals to nil. A win by a similar margin as they lost in the reverse leg will force extra time.
Riga lost only once in their last five outings, winning the other four. In that period, they won three games on home soil, two of which had a clean sheet, so there is a good chance the hosts will score in this second leg of round 3, Europa Conference League qualifiers after failing to do so in the first leg.
