Match: FK Liepājas Metalurgs vs. Salzburg (Champions League) Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Tuesday, 19 July, 2016
Start time: 17:00 UK
Liepājas will host Salzburg in the second game between them from the 2nd qualifying round of Champions League. The match is on Tuesday and will start at 17:00 UK time at “Stadions Daugava”.
Liepājas, the champion of Latvia lost the first game in Austria with only 1:0 and keep their chances high for the match at home. Virsliga, the championship of Latvia is in the 14 round and Liepājas are in the second position with 26 points, 5 less than the leader Spartaks Jūrmala but and with a match more than Jūrmala which had played only 13.
Salzburg prepares for their game against Liepājas with 5 friendly games but it seems in the first match that the championship matches that the Latvian team plays every week had an impact and a much more class team of Salzburg won with only one goal at home.
Liepājas with the help of their fans will try everything to reach a positive result against Salzburg and even try to eliminate them. I think the Austrians will play smart and wait for their chances to score a goal which will be almost certainly for them to advance. The home team will also try not to concede a goal as long as they can so they can keep their chances until the last minute and even a win with one goal will be enough to put the match in overtime where everything is possible.
