Celtic, on the other hand, has reached straight to the semifinals in the Europa League qualifiers this season. They have also played in the Champions League qualifiers. The Hoops are on a four-game winning streak in their schedule, following a 3-2 win at home against Livingston in the last Premiership encounter.

Riga FC vs Celtic Prediction

Riga will welcome one of the most dangerous sides from the Scottish Premiership. Celtic has been a regular face in winning the top tier title at Scotland. Besides, the visitor is also known for their form in the international waters as one of the most successful clubs in the mix.

With their squad strength and league superiority, the Celts will probably trouble the home team’s defense. Having a poor form in overall, the home team is not likely to return that favor; which is why no BTTS will probably be the ideal choice for the clash.

Furthermore, the Celts will not hold back their attack in both halves of the game. Their squad strength is too much for Riga FC to handle out of the blue as they are meeting for the first time. This suggests that the match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair.

Celtic is clearly the favorites to win in the clash but the odds are too low for the away win. The safest bet for the punters to yield decent returns will probably be the tip for Celtic to win with a -1 handicap in the game.
