FK Rigas Futbola Skola vs Larne FC Prediction & Betting Tips - Champions League

 by Ian John in Champions League Predictions

Great news football fans! The Champions League is back! Our first prediction of the new 2024/25 season involves Latvian Champions Rigas Futbola Skola (FK RFS) hosting Northern Irish side Larne in the first qualifying round. The Inver Reds claimed the Northern Irish league title last season for the second time in a row to qualify for European football’s elite competition, where they begin with a trip to the Latvian capital.

FK RFS was only founded in 2016 but has claimed the Latvian title twice, in 2021 and 2023. In 2022 they became only the second Latvian team to qualify for the Group Stages of a European competition. They are also currently at the top of the Virsliga Table, with 56 points from 22 games, seven ahead of city rivals Riga in second place, and they have won eleven of their last twelve games, drawing the other. They also average over three goals scored per game, netting 68 goals so far in their league campaign. 

It took Larne 133 years to win their first Northern Irish League title in 2022/23, but their second came in the following season, giving them another shot at the Champions League. Owner Kenny Bruce’s investment in the club has paid off domestically and they have another chance to progress into the second round here.

Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt will await the winners of the two-legged tie, with the second leg of this match taking place at Inver Park on the 17th July. One of FK RFS or Larne will break new ground in reaching qualifying R2, both having lost their previous Champions League Qualifying R1 fixture, ironically against the same opponent. That was HJK Helsinki, who beat FK RFS 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in 2022/23 and then beat Larne 3-2 at the same stage of last year’s competition.

Our FK Rigas Futbola Skola vs Larne FC Prediction

Our Rigas Futbola Skola vs. Larne Prediction is: Rigas Futbola Skola to win and over 2.5 goals to be scored.

There are a number of factors to consider here, but key amongst them is that this will be Larne’s first game of the new season, while FK RFS are over the midway point of their domestic season in Latvia. As such, the home side will be match-fit and battle-hardened compared to their Northern Irish opponents. 

SK RFS also had a better result against the same opponent (HJK Helsinki) and has beaten a Northern Irish team previously (Linfield) in Europe.  

Both teams score plenty of goals, so the data supports teaming up the FK RFS win with over 2.5 Goals.

Prediction :

FK Rigas Futbola Skola to win and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
