Tonight in the game of the 24th round of the Latvian Highest league at the Skonto Stadium, we defeated “Daugavpils” with a scoreline of 3:0. Goals were scored by all three strikers – Marko Regža, Abdulrahman Taiwo and Anthony Contreras! On Thursday, the Conference League game against “Kecskeméti TE”.

We played two tough games against Daugavpils this season. On April 15 in Daugavpils we lost two points (1:1), but on May 8 in Mežaparks we won only 1:0.

In the first half of the game, we controlled the ball a lot, the opponents played very low and we could not create good shooting positions. In the 40th minute, we created another combination – at the end of it Brian Peña made a good shot, the goalkeeper saved the opponents, but the first one the ball was Marko Regža – 1:0. The first half ended with this result.

At the beginning of the second half, Douglas Aurelio missed from the penalty spot. We could not score the second goal for a long time, but in the 77th minute, Abdulrahman Taiwo scored from a few meters – 2:0. Anthony Contreras also scored eight minutes later – just like other strikers, the Costa Rica national team player also scored from close range. The final result was a 3:0 victory.
