Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Szektoi Stadion will host Thursday’s Conference League game between Kecskemeti and Riga FC, the two teams who meet for the first time in European competitions. Kecskemeti were scoring goals for fun in pre-season and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in the home team will be Brazil left-back Matheus Leoni, who joined the club earlier this summer.
The Latvians, on the other hand, booked their place in the second qualifying round by beating Vikingur Reykjavik in the double-header. Since Riga FC looked sharp up front in a 6-0 crushing of Tukums 2000, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Kecskemeti defenders should have duo Taiwo – Aurelio at bay as they scored four goals in total in the last league match. Riga boss Tomislav Stipic is likely to stick to the 3-5-2 formation.
