CSKA Sofia vs Riga FC – Europa League
In another of the many games of this day of the match round regarding the qualifying round of the first round of the Europa League 2018/2019, in the first leg, in this match on Thursday, Bulgaria, Sofia, Balgarska Armija Stadium, the CSKA Sofia team and the Riga FC squad for the first time in history.
The home team enters this match to make their first official match in this season, having only played friendly matches in recent weeks, of preparation for the official games of the season that begins now, with the team to achieve some positive results, like the draw before Shakhtar.
The Bulgarian capital team qualified for the Europa League qualifying round after finishing last year’s Bulgarian championship in second place behind champion Ludogorets.
The away team from Latvia enters this match already with the current season, unlike what happens with your opponent in this match, having already played a total of 14 matches in the Latvian championship, having a very impressive record in their most recent matches, winning five consecutive wins and six in total with a Latvian Cup triumph with all games ending 1-0 or 2-0.
The team finished the Latvian championship of the last season in the third position, which assured him the qualification for this phase of the Europa League.
Prediction CSKA Sofia vs Riga FC:
Given what has been impressive defensive consistency on the part of the visiting formation (has not conceded any goals in his last 7 matches, although it is not possible to compare a Bulgarian championship with Latvian), I believe that the Latvian team will transpose this consistency to this meeting, which means that the chances of us scoring goals diminish with some significance.
Prediction of the Day: At least 2.5 goals
