Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Stadions Skonto will host Thursday’s football match between Riga and CSKA Sofia. The Bulgarian side recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Estonians in the first leg and they are now on a quest to defend their slim lead in Riga. There were no too many clear-cut chances to score in the first leg and we believe that fans will see a low-scoring affair at Staidions Skonto as well. CSKA Sofia are more of a team than Riga, but seeing that the Bulgarians were not on top of their game in the first leg, we do not believe that away win should be considered. Riga are in the middle of the season and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. You should bear in mind that Viktor Skripnik’s troops will play the Europa League clash in the capital of Estonia for the first time ever.
