Rio Ave overview
The Big River was solid during the last season. They have played only two official friendly matches during the preseason, and haven’t lost. One draw against RC Famalicao 2-2, and a victory against Gil Vicente 3-2. During the transfer window, Rio Ave had 15 arrivals and 14 departures, and it will need some time for them to create chemistry on the field. They were good when looking home games in the previous season, and Rio Ave won most of their points (28) at Villa do Conde stadium. The hosts have the imperative to win here, and to start the season in the best possible way.
After a solid start in the pre-season matches, Belenenses fell into a hole. At the moment they have 3 straight defeats with only one goal scored. In the previous two games, they haven’t scored, and they lost with minimal results. Prior to this negative run, Belenenses had two wins and one draw. In total 6 games they have played this summer, 4 of them ended with both teams not to score. During the transfer window, changes in this club were even bigger than with their opponents. The biggest blow is Edgar’s departure to Lille, and the defender was one of the best players in the league at his position. Belenenses had only 5 victories away from home in the previous year.
Head to head matches
In the past season, the clubs were victorious at their home grounds. Rio Ave won 2-0, and Belenenses 1-0. Previous three meetings ended with under 2.5 goals. In the last 6 games we saw two victories, defeats and draws apiece for each club.
Prediction for Rio Ave vs Belenenses betting tip
We think that the hosts in this game will clinch this match. We see that home teams in these encounters have some sort of advantage and that they usually win. One more reason is the fact that Rio Ave collects most of their points at home, and on the other hand, Belenenses is not so good away from home.
Secon pick is both teams not to score. Recenlty, when these two sides meet, we have a low number of goals, and it usually ends with some team failing to score.
