Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Thursday’s football match at Stadion Balgarska Armija will host the Europa League clash between CSKA Sofia and Riga. CSKA have been producing fine performances in pre-season and it is no surprise they are seen as hot favourites to win the first leg. The Bulgarians are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but coach Hristo Yanev should warn his men against complacency. CSKA Sofia are a more experienced side than Riga, which is the main reason why home win should be considered. The Latvians, on the other hand, are in the middle of the season, with the team sitting in second place in the standings in the Virsliga, but we do not believe that they are capable of making a miracle in Bulgaria. Given CSKA’s recent form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts in this one.
