Jelgavas footballers Photo: Zigismunds Zālmanis / “Riga”The remaining two ninth round games will be played in the Optibet Super League today, which will determine the order of the teams in the middle of the tournament table.“Daugavpils” at the stadium “Celtnieks” will host Jurmala “Spartaku” at 18:00. The game will be broadcast live on the channel “Sportacentrs.com TV”.The last games have been more successful for “Spartaks”, who were forced to skip the seventh round game with “Liepāja”, because the team identified three club employees infected with Covid-19. After that, “Spartaks” with Nemanja Belakovič’s excellent performance defeated “Jelgava” 4: 1, without losing in the last three Super League games.“Daugavpils”, on the other hand, won with losses, after winning in its own square over “Ventspils” with 3: 1 with 0: 3, experiencing a defeat away in the fight against “Valmiera”.While Belakovičs is the league leader in this indicator with seven goals scored, Daugavpils’ best goalkeeper Chinonso Ofors with four goals scored was sold to RFS at the beginning of the transfer period. Already in Tuesday’s fight as part of the new team, Ofors stood out with the fifth goal scored in the Super League and a pass. In the absence of the corpse, Andrejs Kovaļovs is the most productive with three goals scored in the ranks of “Daugavpils”.Last season, in the matches of these teams, “Daugavpils” celebrated the victory victory in the eighth final of the Latvian Cup with a 1-0 away. “Spartaks” celebrated three successes in the Latvian championship games with a total goal ratio of 9: 6.“Jelgava” will host “Liepāja” at the stadium of Zemgale Olympic Center at 7 pm. The game will be broadcast live on the channel “Best4Sport TV”.The last games have not been very successful for both teams. “Jelgava” after two successes at the beginning of the championship, then won only one victory in six matches, beating “Ventspils” 1-0 in its field. In the last round, the guests experienced the already mentioned devastation in Jūrmala. Meanwhile, “Liepāja”, which has a game with “Spartak” in reserve, as it was postponed to September, after four losses in the last round managed to win a draw in its field against the debutants of the Premier League “Tukums 2000 ″ / TSS – 2: 2.While all footballers will be able to play for Jelgava, Liepāja has been severely cut by the uncontrollability of the club’s best player Artūrs Karašauskas, threatening the referee in the July 8 match and earning a disqualification for a month.In case of victory, the people of Liepaja will overtake their opponents today.“Jelgava” is the most productive with three goals scored by Jurijs Zaharkivs, who also stood out in the last round, but no one has scored more than two goals in the guest ranks.Last season, a depressing advantage in the duel of these teams was in the “Liepāja” side, which won three and played in the fourth match in a draw, fixing the goal ratio 6: 2. In mutual games, Jelgava residents have not won in eight games already, winning the previous victory in the 2018 Latvian Cup.The three games of the ninth round took place on Tuesday, when in the central game of the round “Riga” at “Skonto” stadium beat “Ventspils” with 1: 0 (0: 0), “Tukums 2000 ″ / TSS gave way to RFS with 0: 3 (0: 1) and “Valmiera” guests played 2: 2 (1: 0) with the “Metta” team.“Riga” is still in the leading positions of the Premier League, which, like RFS, has 24 points in nine games, but wins in a mutual match. “Valmiera” takes the third place with 15 points, “Ventspils” has 11 points, in the same number of seven games, but the loss in the mutual match – “Spartak”, nine points in eight matches – “Jelgava” and “Daugavpils”. The “Metta” team has scored eight points, but “Liepāja” has scored seven in seven dues. “Tukums 2000” / TSS has reached two points.This season, ten teams will start in the Super League, which is one more than last year and two more than yesterday. Also, this season in the Super League, the legionnaire limit has been raised to eight players. This means that there must be at least three players prepared for the association on the court at the same time. Last year, the limit was five foreign players.As in many other countries, the number of permitted substitutions has been increased from three to five after the coronavirus break in the regulations of the Premier League championship in the 2020 season.Due to a three-month forced break, three will be played instead of the four planned laps this season.Last year, “Riga” was crowned Latvian champion, but RFS won its first trophy in the history of the club, which won the national cup.
