Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Rio will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Gil Vicente when they host Portimonense at their Estadio do Rio Ave. Los Rioavistas aim to stay in the Europa League race, while Paulo Sergio’s troops are eager to escape the relegation zone. Rio Ave midfielder Ali Elmusrati is likely to miss the game with injury. Portimonense, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Vitoria Guimaraes.
The visitors are desperate to grab something from the game, but seeing that Rio Ave defeated Braga in their last home match, we are not tempted to put our money on Paulo Sergio’s men. In their last meeting in Vila do Conde Rio Ave defeated Portimonense 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. A man to watch in the home team will be Iran international Mehdi Taremi, who has netted 13 goals so far this season.
