Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Following back-to-back losses to Fiorentina, Hearts will look to keep their Conferenfce League last 32 hopes alive when they welcome Riga to their Tynecastle Park. Robbie Neilson’s men suffered a 4-3 loss to Celtic at the weekend, but their display in the Scottish Premiership derby was anything but poor. Lawrence Shankland, who scored a hat-trick against the Hoops, should be deployed up front instead of injured forward Stephen Humphrys.
RFS, on the other hand, failed to spoil Basaksehir’s party in Istanbul, and seeing that they struggle on the travels, we are tempted to put our money on Hearts this time out. Experienced midfielder Tomas Simkovic is back from suspension for the visiting side. Earlier in the process Hearts defeated RFS 2-0 in Latvia, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
