Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
LNK Sporta Parks will host Wednesday’s Conference League qualifier between RFS and Sabah Baku. The Latvians proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Makedonija GP and given their performance in a 5-2 crushing of Auda in the national championship, home triumph should definitely be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ivory Coast international Ismael Diomande, who scored four goals in the last league match.
The Azeri, on the other hand, have yet to kick-off the new domestic campaign and seeing that the Latvian championship is in a full swing, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. RFS defenders should have pacey winger Joy-Lance Mickels at bay as the German international scored 17 goals in the national championship last term. You should bear in mind that the two clubs have never met before in European competitions.
