Rīgas FS form and stats

This stadium has been a fortress for Rīgas FS in the Virsliga so far this season with the win-draw-loss statistic 5-0-1. Rīgas has a nice streak going on as they have played eleven consecutive leaguegames without losing (regardless of home/away). They are keen to extend their tally, a streak that began after the Valmiera / BSS defeat 91 days ago.

Rīgas's previous game was a Virsliga match also played at home, ending 2-1 versus FC Daugavpils / Progress (placed 5th). The home side are looking to build on that result.

Before that game, the 1-0 home victory against Spartaks Jūrmala.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Rīgas as they have a new game in only four days, a Virsliga match thankfully also at home. Riga are visiting.

With an average of more than two goals per home game in the league (14 in 6 games), Rīgas FS's attacking play is working. Rīgas FS have conceded 6 in these home matches.
