Reason For Portimonese vs Rio Ave Predictions

  • Rio Ave sit 6th in the table ahead of their trip to Portimonense.
  • The hosts could drop into the relegation zone this weekend if they lose at home on Friday.
  • Rio Ave have avoided defeat in their last four matches against Portimonense.
  • Portimonense are shy on wins having secured just one victory in their last six league games.

Rio Ave are enjoying an excellent start to the season

Rio Ave have won four and drawn one of their last six matches against Portimonense and under 2.5 goals were produced in four of the pairs’ last six encounters. Portimonense have only won one of their last six matches while Rio Ave have won three of their last four games in league and cup, so you can start to see why we have backed the visitors with a double chance bet this Friday.

Under 2.5 goals were produced in four of Portimonense’s last six matches as well as in all of Rio Ave’s last six outings, which suggests we will be in for a low-scoring affair on Friday night. Rio Ave have kept three clean sheets in their last five matches while Portimonense have failed to score in two of their last five matches, all of which adds weight to our prediction for a final scoreline of 1-0 in the visitors’ favour.

The hosts have only won one of their six home games this season and the visitors have won two of their six away games. Portimonense average 0.83 points per home game and Rio Ave average 1.17 points per away game, so while the stats back a narrow Rio Ave victory the double chance bet covers us if the game ends in a draw.

Portimonense have struggled for results at home

Portimonense score an average of 1.00 goals per home game and concede an average of 1.50 goals while Rio Ave score an average of 0.83 goals per away game and concede an average of 1.17 goals, providing more reason to expect a low-scoring ninety minutes between the pair this Friday.

Only 17% of Rio Ave’s away games have seen both teams score and Portimonense have only kept clean sheets in 17% of their home games, while Rio Ave have kept clean sheets in 33% of their away games. A majority of the visitor’s wins this season have been obtained with a one-goal margin (3 wins), and that is another reason why we have backed a narrow 1-0 victory for Rio Ave on Friday night.

We’re confident that a double chance bet on Rio Ave will payout on Friday night and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0. The visitors arrive as the clear form favourites and with an excellent recent record against their hosts. Rio Ave have outperformed Portimonense in all departments so far this season and will be confident they can secure a positive result on Friday night.
