Yeah it was pretty weird game from Minsk and as you've said Riga was just better prepared. And I don't know if it's underestimating or they just don't care much about this cup or are that confident about winning in Minsk but yeah it looks like they came to Riga to play a friendly game: Lalande in goal, all these young guys in the line-up, weak effort. After pretty long break they were not in perfect shape anyway and in the end it's 7-2 final.
