Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Ventspils will be looking to kick off their Europa League qualifying campaign in style when they take on Dinamo-Auto at their Ventspils Olimpiskais stadions on Thursday evening. Ventspils have been having their ups and downs in the Latvian top flight in the first half of the season, but they impressed in a 5-0 win over Jelgava. Even though talented attacker Kaspars Kokins has been struggling with injury of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
Dinamo-Auto, on the other hand, are on a four-game winless run in the Moldavian top flight ahead of the trip to Latvia, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Russia international Evgeni Kozlov, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
