Riga FC vs Malmo FF: Prediction and Betting Tips

17:00, Jul 13 2021
Riga FC vs Malmo FF prediction for Tuesday’s Champions League qualification clash at Skonto stadions in Riga. The second leg of the match between Riga FC of Latvia and Malmo FF of Sweden will take place in Riga after Malmo won the first leg 1-0 in Sweden. Follow along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Riga FC need to have an attacking mind in the second leg

It could have been a much worse scoreline in the first leg for Riga FC as they could have lost by a much bigger margin considering the number of goal attempts their opponents had. The Latvians need to bounce back from two defeats in a row, one in their domestic league and the second against Malmo.

Coach Riherts’ team needs to improve in many ways though if they want to have a chance of troubling Malmo. Riga FC had just one goal attempt in the first leg and enjoyed 35% of the ball possession. The more important stat shows that Riga had just 17 dangerous attacks. Riherts needs to send his team to the field with a much more attacking mind if he wants to overcome the first leg result.

Riga FC Key Stats

  • Riga FC have won their last five home matches
  • Both teams have scored in four of their last ten matches
  • Riga FC have failed to score in two of their last ten matches

Malmo FF must be more effective offensively

Founded back in 1910, Malmo FF is the most successful Swedish club with a record of 21 Swedish championships and 14 national cup titles. Malmo FF is the only club from the Nordic countries to have reached the European Champions cup, the predecessor of the UEFA Champions League. They lost in the 1979 final against Nottingham Forest.

In their first leg match, coach Jon Dahl Tomasson’s team were completely dominant. They had 65% of the ball possession and 22 goal attempts. They had trouble with Riga’s packed defensive style of play and must be careful not to miss too many chances in the second leg to avoid any surprises.

Malmo ff

  • 80% of Malmo’s last ten matches saw both teams score
  • Malmo have scored in all of their last ten matches
  • In two of their last ten matches, Malmo had clean sheets 

Riga FC vs Malmo FF Prediction

Malmo had difficulty in the 1st leg to score and ended their dominance with just one goal. Riga needs to be more adventurous offensively as they need to win by two goals to qualify. For the bookies though that seems highly unlikely.

The Swedish side must not find much trouble to win this match and the fact that their opponent’s minds will be on scoring a goal at least might be to their advantage. The Latvian side will have to leave their defensive bases, Malmo for more chances to score.

Vbet is offering odds of 1.35 for a Malmo win. For a more profitable bet, we take a look at the goals scored market and we find the over 2 goals bet with a generous 1.84 odd.
