🎲 Bet of the Day: FC Twente vs Riga FC
In Enschede, FC Twente and Riga FC will meet for the first time in history. They’ll meet on Thursday for the opening leg of their third-round qualifier. The winner of this tie will reach the Europa Conference League playoffs – the final qualifying round of the competition.
Twente overcame Hammarby in the second round, 2-1 on aggregate. The Reds won the first leg 1-0 at De Grolsch Veste, before drawing 1-1 in the return fixture in Sweden. They finished last season with the Eredivisie’s best defensive record with 27 conceded goals. They kept 19 clean sheets in 34 games and won 12 of their 17 home games to nil, including the last two.
In contrast, Riga lost two of their last three Europa Conference League away games to nil. The Latvian league leaders have the edge in match fitness, having played 25 Virsliga games (W20 D4 L1). But they struggled against Kecskemet in their second-round qualifier. They lost the first leg 2-1 in Hungary, before clinching a 3-1 win in the second leg at home after extra time.
