Dundalk is thought to be the obvious favorite in the match with Riga on the 10th of July 10. Our prediction has estimated possibilities of each team and chose the reliable bet.
Dundalk is spending another very impressive season – after 24 rounds Winnie Pert’s team is in the lead of the standings with 56 points. The Lilywhites are ahead of the closest opponent (Shamrock Rovers) with eight points and there are all prerequisites to the fact that in the nearest future this handicap will only increase.
The draw 2:2 with Derry City last round has broken the series of nine wins in a row.
Last season Riga has got the first in its history champion’s title. Mihails Koņevs‘s team has finished the first with 64 points, having got ahead of Ventspils with only four points. In the current season the club also wants to take the gold medals – after 19 rounds it takes the first place in the table and advances the second RFS with four points.
Dundalk didn’t lose any of 16 last matches – 14 wins and two draws
Dundalk didn’t lose in 17 official home matches – 14 wins and three draws
In each of three last home games Dundalk has scored at least three goals
Dundalk is very strong in the championship of Ireland and it approaches the home game with Riga being at the peak of the competition form. It will be hard to resist to such opponent.
The Lilywhites are especially good in home matches – last time on home Oriel Park they were left without points almost a year ago and in the last three matches they have scored 10 goals to the rivals.
Dundalk is the experienced fighter on the international scene in comparison with Riga which for the second time in its history will try the hand in Euro cups and now the Lilywhites obviously surpass the rival in the game.
