Tenth win of the season

In another round of the Optibet futbola Virslīga, we took on FK Metta at the home game, the only opponent we hadn’t yet won this season. By achieving a pretty convincing win with 2:0, no more undefeated teams have left in this league for us.

Tamaz Pertia was forced to make one change in the starting lineup after the Daugavpils game, sending Ibrahima Sow in instead of the disqualified Luka Silagadze. One of the team’s leaders, Daisuke Yokota, also returned to the reserve bench.

With the first few minutes of the game, the hosts confirmed their status, threatening the Riga team’s side several times. Finally, in the 8 th minute, we succeeded with that – after Ivan Zhelizko’s excellent corner, the ball was headed into the goal by Joyskim Dawa. It was the second goal for Cameroonian defender thus far this season, he did score the first one in an identical way on away victory over Liepaja.

The second goal of the game came in the 74 th minute, when Daisuke Yokota, who came on at the halftime, made the perfect pass to the team’s attacking leader Raimonds Krollis who did his job perfectly. It was Raimonds’s seventh goal in the championship.

Demonstrating an excellent football in second half-time, Tamaz Pertia’s men closed this battle with a win, the tenth this season. Meanwhile, in the fight between the two competitors of our club, RFS appeared to be superior wining Riga FC with 3:1.

In the next game on June 21, we will meet Riga FC in Skonto stadium, at 20:00 local time. This will be a very important game for both teams in the fight for the championship.
