Derry City seem to have found their form at the right time, as the Irish side registered back-to-back triumphs over Dublin (1-0) and Bohemians (2-1) in their previous two games and built some much-needed confidence. Namely, The Red and White Army will debut this summer in the UEFA Conference League, but the Irish team did not have much success in European competitions in previous seasons. Meanwhile, Riga have failed to build the necessary confidence ahead of the trip to Ireland as Sandro Perkovic's side have taken just a point from their previous two league games - without a goal scored. Last season, Riga ended their participation in the UEFA Conference League in the second qualifying round, as they were bettered by Lincoln from Gibraltar on aggregate (2-4).

Derry City vs Riga FC Betting Tips

Derry City may have found form at the right time, but their home record has looked worrying in recent weeks, with the team without a win in their last five games in front of their home fans. In fact, Derry City have also faced problems in attack, having failed to score more than two goals in four of their previous five home games and this could be a major problem for them ahead of Thursday's clash. On the other hand, Riga are among the teams that are not too sharp in attack, and they have proved that in recent weeks, not scoring more than one goal in each of their previous four league games. Derry City has drawn four times from the previous five home games, so it means that Riga will not have an easy task to achieve a triumph, and considering the importance of the match, I expect low-scoring.

Coach Ruaidhri Higgins rested Brandon Kavanagh and Jamie McGonigle against Bohemians, so the duo should be fresh and ready for the first leg on Thursday.

However, Ronan Boyce, Cameron Dummigan as well as captain Eoin Toal are in the recovery room due to injuries, so the manager will have a number of changes in the back line.
