CSKA Sofia – Riga FC Europa League 12/07/2018

CSKA Sofia – Riga FC Europa League

CSKA Sofia and Riga FC will meet on Thursday, July 12, at 20.45, at the “Balkarska Armija” stadium, in a match from the first leg of the first preliminary round of the Europa League.

Prediction CSKA Sofia – Riga FC

The CSKA hosts ended the championship in second place, just 3 points of leader Ludogorets. The Bulgarians proved to be a formidable team in their home games, having only one defeat in the entire championship and a 29-5 goal lap. In the friendly matches this summer, CSKA drew, among other things, Sahtior (0-0) and Brondby (3-3) and defeated Ufa (2-1).

Riga FC is in full championship, ranking second in the league’s first leagues in Latvia. In the last match played on July 1, he won 2-0 in the away game at Valmiera, the last position in the league. Riga FC receives few goals in the domestic competition, but Latvia’s level of football is low.


The bulk of Bulgarians at CSKA Sofia is valued at 20.5 million euros, with more Brazilian, Portuguese and African players. Instead, the value of all players in Riga amounts to 6.5 million. The only advantage of the Latvians in front of the Bulgarians seems to have already begun their internal competition and they are in a somewhat better physical form.

I think CSKA Sofia will try to make an important step to qualify yet and will be able to score at least two goals in the opposing goal.

Prediction Today: Total goals CSKA Sofia – over 1.5
