Tip Reasoning

  • Porto are unbeaten in nine league games, winning on eight occasions
  • Rio Ave have scored just four goals in eight away league games
  • Porto have scored first-half goals in each of their last 13 league matches

Porto can stamp their authority early

Porto have dropped only two points across their last nine Primeira Liga matches and that came in a 1-1 home draw with title rivals Benfica, so they should have few problems accounting for a shot-shy Rio Ave.

Porto have moved to within four points of league leaders Sporting and their title challenge is gathering serious momentum with them having won eight of their last nine matches.

Rio Ave pinched a surprise point at Sporting on their last away trip but they had failed to score in four road games prior to that and emulating that effort looks beyond them.

In fact, Rio Ave have managed only 11 goals in 15 league games this season, with them scoring just four times in eight road fixtures.

Three of Porto’s last five league wins have been recorded to nil and they have shut out Rio Ave in three of their last six meetings.

However, Porto have been starting games quickly and it could be worth chancing them to be leading at the break before going on to win the match.

Porto have scored first-half goals in each of their last 13 league games and we expect another fast start from the title chasers against Rio Ave.

Correct-score punters should opt for Porto to win to nil, with 2-0 the preferred scoreline. Two of Rio Ave’s last three away league defeats were by that margin.
