Riga will welcome Metta - LU to Sporta komplekss Ķeizarmežs for a matchday 15 fixture in Latvia Virsliga. The last meeting on 10th April 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met twenty-one times in the most recent seasons. Riga has won 16 matches, and Metta - LU triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.76 goals, while both teams score 43% of the time.

Riga's latest fixture against BFC Daugavpils ended in an away 1-1 draw. I expected more from their creative midfielders, but it just wasn't their day. Riga set the tone early and scored in the 2nd minute.

Metta - LU's previous game in the competition versus Noah Jūrmala ended in an away 3-0 win. Although Metta - LU countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. Metta - LU was pretty good in both halves and scored in the 32nd, 58th and 73rd minute.

Since the start of the season, Riga is more dominant at home. They have seven wins out of 8 games on home soil. Zilibaltie's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 50% of home games.

Metta - LU has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Metta - LU wins 0.43 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Metta - LU kept a clean sheet in just 14% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won five consecutive matches. Riga is currently unbeaten at home in five games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.

Metta - LU failed to win in three consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Friday and win against Riga. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost three consecutive games on the road.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Riga wins on average 2.63 points per home game, compared to 0.43 points per away game for Metta - LU. My prediction is Riga to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.95 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 88% of Riga's home and Metta - LU's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 55% of Riga's home and Metta - LU's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
