Noah Jūrmala form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team, who have the fewest scored goals (6) in Virsliga, on their Virsliga travels is 1 win, 1 draw and 2 defeats. It's a growing despair in Noah Jūrmala as they have recorded three consecutive losses.

Jūrmala are looking to quickly end their 288 minutes long goal drought in the Virsliga.

The manager A. Gorlov was unhappy after their last game, a Virsliga match played at their home ground. Noah Jūrmala suffered a 0-5 loss to Liepāja (placed 4th). Jūrmala lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-5 beating and focus on this one.

Preceding that, the 0-3 home loss versus Metta / LU.

The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The Virsliga trip to Spartaks Jūrmala.

The travelling fans enjoy Noah Jūrmala's attacking play in away games, having scored 6 goals in 4 league matches away. Noah Jūrmala have conceded 9 goals in these games.
