Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Thanks to a 2-0 win over Santa Clara, Porto retained top position in the Primeira Liga standings, but the Dragons need to keep on improving their game if they are to regain the domestic trophy. Seeing that Porto suffered elimination in the Europa League knockout stages, they will be fully focused on the national championship in the remainder of the season.
The Dragons are eyeing their seventh consecutive win in the Portuguese top flight, and we predict that will stick to their attacking style of play against Rio Ave. The good news for the hosts is that Cameroon international Vincent Aboubakar has overcome his injury. The Rioavistas, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous eight league fixtures, but Porto are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. In the first half of the season Porto outplayed Rio Ave 1-0, with Moussa Marega scoring the winner.
