Tonight we lost 0:1 to “Vikingur Reykjavik” in the second leg game of the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Europa Conference League, but we won 2:1 in two games and entered the next round. The next game is on Sunday in the Latvian championship in Tukums.
We won the first game at Skonto Stadium with 2:0. Goals were scored by Douglas Aurelio and Marko Regža. “Vikingur” is in the first place of the Icelandic championship, but we are the leaders of the Latvian championship.
The opponents started the game very well, but we played a disciplined defense. With each passing minute, we managed to gain the initiative more and more convincingly. We created several good scoring chances, but in some episodes we just didn’t make the shot. Opponents hit the crossbar once, but there were no goals scored in the first half of the game. 0:0.
In the second half of the game, the opponents attacked a lot and put pressure on our goal. In the 83rd minute, the home team created a great combination, and at the end of it, Helgi Gudjonsson scored a goal from close range (0:1). The end was nervous, but we managed to get the positive result. A 2:1 win in two games and a place in the next round.
On Sunday, the game will be in Tukums, but a week later, the first game in the second round will be played away against the Hungarian vice-champion.
