The first leg of the next round of the Europa League’s qualifiers will close up with a lot of games. In one of them the legendary Bulgarian CSKA Sofia will meet the Latvian newcomer FC Riga at its Balgarska Armia Stadium. How will play these teams with a different experience?

One of the famous Bulgarian football club CSKA Sofia cannot compete with Ludogorets. The Reds from the capital became the runners-up two season in a row. Last year they earned 81 points after 36 games. The national giant Ludogorets had a seven-point gap over them. The Armymen’s statistics included 24 wins, 9 draws and 3 losses, 80 goals for and 26 goals against. Their defensive and offensive lines were second too. Another teams could not compete with CSKA. The third-ranked Levski Sofia had 64 point only. CSKA has been eliminated from the Bulgarian Cup by losing to Levsky on an aggregate 2:4.

Actually the hosts are playing a lot of friendlies. They are unbeaten within five games including two draws with the Danish and Ukrainian powerhouses, Brondby and Shakhtar Donetsk, respectively.

FC Riga is a quite new Latvian football club founded in 2014. The team is based at the Skonto Stadium in Riga. Riga FC plays in the Latvian Higher League. From 2016 playing in the Virslīga.

Last season the Lions reached the highest point in their short history. They became the bronze medalists of the main national football league. FC Riga earned 37 points after 24 games with ten wins, seven draws and losses, 28 goals for and 20 goals against.

This year the guests are second too having 28 points after 14 games. Their current record consists of nine wins, one draw and four losses. They have the best defensive line and five consecutive victories with clean sheet.

CSKA Sofia is an evident favorite of this fixture. The Bulgarians are more experienced and play on their own ground. We believe FC Riga will spoil its first European game. We expect to see the Reds’ full domination equal to a huge victory. We predict this and recommend to bet on CSKA’s win with an Asian handicap of (-1) adding a good coefficient of 1.80.
