Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
After holding league leaders Porto to a 1-1 draw at Estadio do Dragao, Rio Ave will be looking to keep their Europa League hopes alive with a win over Pacos de Ferreira. Carlos Carvalhal’s charges are undefeated in the previous nine league fixtures, but only a win counts for the hosts this time out. Rio Ave produced a fine display in the draw with Porto, and seeing that Pacos de Ferreira failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Vitoria Guimaraes, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
You should bear in mind that the relegation strugglers have already suffered seven defeats on the road in the 2019/20 Primeira Liga season. Even though the two teams played out a goalless draw at Estadio da Capital do Movel earlier this term, home win should be considered.
