PREVIEW: JELGAVA - JūRMALA
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Tuesday, May 18, 2010
A place in next year's Europa League is up for grabs on Wednesday night in the capital city of Riga as Nate Weiss and Jelgava do battle with Jūrmala in the final of the Latvian Cup.

After starting in Saturday's Virsliga loss to Liepājas Metalurgs, Weiss will likely be tabbed to either start again at the left back position or be one of the first options off the bench for head coach Dainis Kazakevičs.

While their league campaign has started off in disappointing fashion, the newly promoted club has shocked the oddsmakers by knocking off two giants of Latvian soccer to arrive in Wednesday final.

Both their quarterfinal and semifinal victories came via penalty kicks with Metalurgs serving as the first victim and Virsliga stalwart Skonto Riga as the second team to fall to Weiss and company in dramatic fashion.

Wednesday's finalists are already quite familiar with each other having played just three weeks prior in a league contest where Jūrmala came out on top 2-1 that saw Weiss tally his first goal of the season.

Both coaches will have full squads available.
