  • Competition: Latvian Higher League

  • Venue: Daugava Stadium in Liepaja

Riga FS will be looking to continue their impressive form this season when they welcome Jelgava to Liepāja on Friday evening.

The hosts are on a course for back to back Latvian Higher League titles. Viktors Morozs’ side won the 2023 title with a one point difference over second place Riga, but things are unlikely to be close this season. RFS sit on top of the tree after 21 games and are separated from second-placed Riga by eight points.

Jelgava meanwhile managed to beat the drop on their return to the Latvian top flight last season, but things have been tough for them this season. The visitors are just one point off the bottom of the table and will enter this week’s game with only one win from their last six encounters.

Betting Tips RFS vs FK Jelgava: Riga FS to win

RFS have been good both home and away this season. Viktors Morozs’ men were last in action on Monday evening at the Daugava Stadium where they registered a 3-1 win over Liepaja. RFS have now won each of their last three matches and scored at least three goals in all three encounters. They equally have a strong record on home soil, with the team boasting eight wins from the last nine encounters at this venue.

One of Jelgava’s major problems this season has been their away form. Indeed, the visitors have picked the second-fewest away points in the Latvian Higher League on the road this season. They lost their last three away games 11-2 on aggregate and their record against their hosts isn’t also good.

  • Best Tip: Home team to win

RFS team news

After the perfect display in the 3-1 win over Liepaja last time out, RFS head coach Viktors Morozs is likely to resist the temptation to make alterations to his starting eleven.

With his brace last time out, Emerson Deocleciano has now been involved in 12 goals for the hosts this season and the Brazilian will keep his place in the final third alongside top scorer Ismaël Diomandé and Jānis Ikaunieks.

FK Jelgava team news

Dylan Maes is a doubt for Jelgava head coach Valērijs Redjko this week due to injury.

Maes had to be taken off at half-time in the win over Metta/LU last time out due to a knock and Friday’s trip to the Daugava Stadium may come too soon for the centre back.
