Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
After producing yet another disappointing display in a 2-2 draw with Portimonense, Benfica will be looking to return to winning ways in Primeira Liga when they face Rio Ave at Estadio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube. The Lisbon Eagles aim to regain top position, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Vilacondenses. Even though Grimaldo and Jardel are sidelined with injury, away win should be considered as the title-chasing side are eager to record their first win after the coronavirus football break.
Rio Ave aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, but seeing that they suffered a 3-2 loss to Ferreira in their last home game, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. Rio Ave midfielder Nikola Jambor is rated doubtful for the midweek clash. In their last meeting at Estadio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube the Eagles emerged triumphant.
