Twente vs Riga – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our Twente vs Riga predictions and tips:

Riga +2 Handicap

Twente are the clear favourites to win this match. Not only do they have the advantage of playing at home, Joseph Oosting’s men are currently on a 13 match unbeaten run, with nine wins and four draws. Interestingly, we have also been impressed by Riga’s recent run of results; they are currently on a three-match winning streak, with nine victories in their last 12 games. Although Twente will be relatively tougher than the opponents that Riga have faced in recent months, we believe the Latvian side will do enough to cover the +2 handicap.

Goals at Both Ends

Although Twente have no losses in their last 13 matches, they’ve conceded their fair share of goals lately. The hosts have seen their defense breached four times in their last four games. Interestingly, both teams were on the scoresheet in four of Twente’s last six games in all competitions. In like manner, three of Riga’s last four games featured goals at both ends; and for this reason, our second Twente vs Riga prediction is that both teams will score.

A High-scoring Game

We would like to point out that Twente and Riga have scored more than their fair share of goals these past few weeks. On one hand, Twente registered 37 goals in their last 13 games; that’s almost three goals per game on average. Similarly, Riga found the back of the net 18 times in their last five matches alone. It’s worth mentioning that all of Riga’s last five games went above the 2.5 goal line; and for this reason, we believe that this will be a high-scoring affair.

Twente vs Riga Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News


FC Twente have been a tough nut to crack; they are coming into this match on a 13 game unbeaten run, with nine wins and four draws. Joseph Oosting’s side will look to extend that run to 14 matches as they welcome Riga to De Grolsch Veste.


On the other hand, Riga won their previous match against FK Super Nova by a 5-1 scoreline, bringing their winning streak to three games. The visiting team will have their work cut out for them on Thursday however, as they go toe-to-toe with an in-form Twente side. It’ll be interesting to see if Riga can keep their winning streak intact at the end of this match.

Twente vs Riga Lineups

Raivis Jurkovskis is still a doubt for the visitors; as he hasn’t fully recovered from an injury he picked up in the previous qualifying round. Likewise, Twente will not be able to call upon the services of Gijs Smal, who was injured in their previous game.
