UEFA Europa Conference League Qualifications,

Venue: Puskas Akademia Pancho Arena.

Rigas FS made a huge upset seven days ago when they destroyed Puskas Academy 3-0 on Latvian soil. Can the Hungarians get their revenge and make it an interesting tie with a strong display in the reverse fixture of this UEFA Europa Conference League tie?

Rigas FS are on the brink of their biggest success in continental competitions. They have never been in the third qualifying round of any European competition so far.

After a 3-0 victory in the first leg of this second qualifying round tie against the Hungarian runners-up, Viktors Morozs’ men are now favorites to advance.

Rigas FS probably enjoyed the best 25 minutes of their history last Thursday as they bagged three unanswered goals past the Hungarians.

Two of these three were scored by their best player and top scorer in both Latvian Virsliga and Europa Conference League, Darko Lemajic.

Overall, the whole result went completely against the run of play as Puskas Academy were the much better team on the pitch.

The Hungarians had 20 shots (to Rigas FS’ 5) and took 9 corners, but the stats counted for little as they returned to their country empty handed.

Nevertheless, the hosts will by no means give up in this rematch. They showed strength by eliminating Finnish Inter Turku at the beginning of this summer’s European journey (3-1 on aggregate, 2-0 win at home).

Puskas vs Rigas Head-to-head

  • This will only be the second head to head encounter between the two rivals.
  • As mentioned above, Rigas FS took a demolishing 3-0 victory in the first leg (played seven days ago).

Puskas vs Rigas Prediction

While Puskas Academy do not have a broad European experience either, we have to back them here based on everything we’ve seen in the first game. They completely dominated the pitch and we are pretty confident they will find a way to turn all these chances to goals this time around.

After all, Rigas FS conceded five goals in the two legs against Faroese KI in the first qualifying round (they advanced 6-5 on aggregate after extra-time). The hosts will go strong from the first minute and we expect them to gain the lead by the half time.
