Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Vitoria Guimaraes and Rio Ave, the two teams who are level on points in the Primeira Liga table, face each other at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques in what is expected to be a close encounter. Guimaraes aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Santa Clara where Joao Pedro came as a substitute and scored the winner in the stoppage time. The talented attacker is likely to be recalled to the starting XI against Rio Ave, and we predict that he is going to make life difficult for the opposition defenders.
Rio Ave, on the other hand, defeated the likes of Santa Clara and Boavista in the previous two league fixtures, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Os Vimaranenses. In their last meeting at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques Guimaraes recorded a 3-2 win over Rio Ave, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
