Rigas and HJK to Draw

The first leg between Rigas and HJK ended with a minimal win for the Finnish champions and that could prove to be the deciding factor in this matchup since we expect the second leg to end without a winner.

After all, HJK is the better team on paper and they've beaten Rigas in two of their last three duels. So, taking the fact that Rigas is the home team in this game, a draw sounds like the most realistic outcome.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Two of the previous three h2h meetings between Rigas and HJK have gone under 2.5 total goals and we expect the same to happen in their upcoming match on Tuesday.

On top of this, went under in three of their last five matches in all competitions, although Rigas did the same in just two of their last five fixtures. Still, the tradition suggests that we won't see a lot of goals here.

Rigas vs HJK Team News & Predicted Lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this Tuesday's Champions League qualification clash between Rigas and HJK below:

Rigas

After twenty rounds in the Latvian league, Rigas is currently second, five points behind Valmiera. So, they have a long way to go if they want to defend their title, the first-ever for the club. In the last six games in the league, Rigas has three wins, one draw, and two losses, so they have been rather inconsistent lately.

On the bright side, Rigas doesn't have any fresh injury concerns, so we will likely see largely the same starting lineup as we did in the first leg against HJK.

Rigas Predicted Lineup: Steinbors – Zjuzins, Sorokins, Lipuscek, Jagodinskis – Sarir, Mares, Panic – Varslavans, Friesenbichler, Emerson Deocleciano

HJK

With two wins, two draws, and two losses in the last six games in the Finish championship, HJK has been far from great form. Still, they are in the second place in the standings at the moment, six points behind league leaders KuPS. The team also has a positive score from the first leg against Rigas.

On top of this, HJK has no injury concerns at this moment, so they will be able to field their best team in this game.

HJK Predicted Lineup: Hazard – Raitala, Hoskonen, Tenho – Peltola, Vaananen, Martic, Murilo – Soiri, Radulovic, Olusanya
