Riga is currently following an average form. They have recorded a set of fluctuating displays from their most recent league outings. However, most of them are unbeaten outcomes which helped them to maintain their positioning in the zone of promotion displaying the same run from their past season.
Meanwhile, Derry City have been enjoying a decent form of late. They are unbeaten in the past 4 competitive outings which are from the Premier Division fixtures. The current run have allowed them to occupy the third spot of the table as like the past season in which they ended up in the zone of Europa Conference League.
Both these outfits followed the above form to enter the first leg of this Europa Conference League Qualification knockout stage fixture. The first leg commenced at the home stadium of Derry City. However, they failed to convert the home advantage to something positive.
Instead, they ended up recording a 0-2 defeat allowing Riga to have highest of spirits ahead of the second leg match-up at their home turf. By the looks of things, we expect a pleasant display from the home outfits at Skonto stadions on Thursday.

Riga vs Derry City Prediction
The confidence gained by Riga sealing an away win with two unanswered goals with the spirits of having home advantage forces us to back them in sealing a win from this fixture. Their decent home run is also a plus for them ahead of this match-up.
On the other side, Derry City lost two of the past four on road outings in their league of late. Also, their offensive side have leaked two or more goals in two of the past three on road league outings.
Snalyzing all the above stats, we have more than enough reasons to back Riga to seal a win from this fixture.
