Valmiera odds: 67/20 (4.35) – 21.0%

Draw odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 22.0%

Olimpija Ljubljana odds: 18/25 (1.72) – 57.0%

As you can see from the Valmiera vs Olimpija Ljubljana odds above, it’s still the visitors who are more likely to win at 18/25 (1.72). Olimpija Ljubljana are the expected winners ahead of Wednesday’s clash, as they have a massive 57.0% win probability in Latvia. Meanwhile, Valmiera’s odds stand at 67/20 (4.35), which barely gives coach Kalns’ boys a 21.0% likelihood of defeating their Slovenian visitors.  Feel free to check the latest Football Whispers picks and predictions on our football betting tips today page as well.

Valmiera vs Olimpija Ljubljana Lineups & Team News

Valmiera

One thing is certain – Valmiera are keeping up their fitness these days. Coach Kalns’ boys just defeated Super Nova in the Latvian Football Cup round of 16. The match at Jana Dalina Stadium ended 2-0 in favor of Valmiera, but regardless of how well the players did to qualify for the next round, our Valmiera vs Olimpija Ljubljana predictions will always favor the visitors due to the sheer class difference.

Predicted lineup – Olses (GK), Balodis, Sliede, Birka, Jaunzems, Zhelizko, Kapic, Kayranami, Gustavo, Mena & Ndoye

Olimpija Ljubljana

Olimpija’s four-game win streak is one of the key reasons behind our Champions League tips this week. Coach Joao Henriques’ troops consecutively crushed Hajduk Split, Primorje, Rudar Velenje, and Valmiera in last week’s head-to-head. We expect to see more of the same on the 19th of July.

Predicted lineup – Vidovsek (GK), Ratnik, Estrada, Sualehe, Lasickas, Doffo, Elsnik, Seslar, Motika, Florucz & Pedro

Player to Watch: Rui Pedro

Portuguese goalscoring magician Rui Pedro was once again the big difference-maker for coach Henriques. The two fellow countrymen have a good understanding of how the team should look on the pitch. Rui Pedro earned his coach’s trust, and he never disappoints. With a 74th-minute stunner, Rui Pedro put the Valmiera game beyond all doubt last week. We are hoping to see more of that trademark Pedro mojo on Wednesday when his team travels to Latvia, and we believe our Valmiera vs Olimpija Ljubljana predictions will be safe, as long as Rui Pedro remains on the pitch.
