Lech won the last two home games, but whether Valmiera will become another victim on 27 August – read our article. How will the meeting end?
Last season, Lech was clearly betting on the champion title, but Dariush Zhurav’s team eventually lost the fight . The railroad workers who won the gold medal of Legia lost only three points, but the gap could have been larger, having issued the title ahead of schedule, the CSKA lost a lot of points before the finish of the tournament.
In the new season, “Lech” has already managed to play several matches – in the Polish Cup, Odra was beaten 3: 1 without any problems. But in the first round of the championship, the “railroad workers” quite unexpectedly lost 1: 2 to “Zaglemba” away, having opened the score and having a serious advantage during the match.
Valmiera can hardly consider the current season to be successful for themselves – the team of Tamaz Pertija is only in third place in the Latvian championship table. The club loses 14 points to the leader of Riga and there can be no question of fighting for the title, it is much more important to keep the third line, which is also claimed by Ventspils and, to a lesser extent, Spartax.
In the last round, Valmiera beat Jelgava 2: 0, gaining the eighth victory of the season.
Lech won their last two home games
Lech have scored seven goals in their last two home games
Valmiera have conceded at least two goals in each of their last four away games
“Lech” starts in the qualification of the Europa League and probably hopes to be in the group – the first rival was “Valmiera”, with whom there should be no problems. There is certainly a class difference between the teams, Lech always plays attacking football at home and scores a lot, conceding away goals in batches, even at the level of the Latvian championship, Valmiera can hardly count on anything today.
We believe that the guests cannot avoid defeat. Forecast – Asian handicap (-3) at Lech. In BC Fonbet, such an outcome is offered with odds 1.95
