Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
After finishing the last Primeira Liga campaign in style, Tondela will be looking to continue where they left when they host Rio Ave at Estadio Joao Cardoso. Over the years Tondela have turned their stadium into a real fortress, but they will have a big fish to fry in Sunday’s clash against Rio Ave. The club chiefs made a lot of changes to the squad in the summer, meaning that the hosts will need time to put all pieces of the puzzle together.
Mario Silva’s men, on the other hand, will represent Portugal in the Europa League this season. Rio Ave did well to secure a top-five finish last term, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win the season opener. Since the game will be played behind closed doors, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team.
