Ventspils vs Vitoria de Guimaraes
Europa League – Qualification
Date: Thursday, 08 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:45 UK / 18:45 CET
Venue: Daugavas stadions (Riga).
The teams are playing the home matches at different stadiums in the semi-finals of the qualifiers making them lose the home team advantage in perspective.
The Yellow Blues ended their last match with a draw against Gzira, while Guimaraes, on the other hand, have a 4-0 win from their last encounter in the Qualifiers against Jeunesse Esch in this season.
Despite their recent results, it seems as if both teams have a scoring spree on their table in the Europa League so far. Guimaraes started this season off well in the League while the acting hosts have a lack of consistency with some draws in their hands.
Ventspils could secure only two wins from their last six matches, while the Conquerors scored four wins in the same period. Guimaraes have also shown excellent strength in their away matches in this league tournament.

Ventspils vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction
With the home advantage out of the equation, the so-called home team is on the run for a win to secure their spot in the finals. They will be looking to seize something from this match but the strong form of Guimaraes in away matches will pitch them a better home run in the game likely.
We can surely expect a couple of goals as both teams are offensive in their style of play and will deliver their shots to perfection at both sides eventually. Guimaraes would likely win with a one-goal lead and the game will have more than a couple of goals at the end of the final whistle.
