Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio Nacional do Jamor will host Friday’s football game between Belenenses and Rio Ave. Belenenses kicked off the new Primeira Liga campaign in style, with the team beating Vitoria Guimaraes on the road, but they are on a five-game winless run ahead of the visit of Rio Ave. O Belem are desperate to record their first home win of the season, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field.
South Africa international Thibang Phete is rated doubtful after he was tested positive for coronavirus. Rio Ave, on the other hand, failed to book their place in the Europa League group stages, meaning that they will be fully focused on the national championship in the 2020/21 season. The visitors proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Farense and Moreirense, and given O Belem’s form at the start of the season, away win should be considered.
