Match Preview and Predictions

  • Rio Ave’s recent fixtures have been action packed, with sending offs in five of their last six league (LPFP) matches and both teams scoring in five of their last seven. The team to open the scoring in those last seven matches has gone on to win on just three occasions (D1, L3).
  • The hosts are trying to correct a dwindling home record, having recently snapped a run of five LPFP matches at home without victory (D3, L2). Despite clean sheets in four of their last ten LPFP home encounters, Rio Ave endures one of the LPFP’s poorest win rates (33.33%; W4, D5, L3) as a home favourite.
  • While they’ll be relieved to welcome the team with the LPFP’s second worst away record, they must tread carefully. Portimonense recently secured their first win of the campaign as an away outsider and have now taken four points within two LPFP away trips for the first time this season.
  • As a result of just four second half goals on the road this LPFP season, Portimonense have converted just two of the six occasions in which they scored first away into victory (D3, L1), whilst also going into the round as one of several clubs to have lost every away match when trailing at the HT break (L5).
  • Players to watch: Mehdi Taremi has recorded the first team goal in five of his last seven LPFP appearances, while Aylton Boa Morte remains the only Portimonense player to have scored in more than one of their last seven LPFP matches.
  • Stat attack: The last five H2H meetings (all competitions) saw the visiting side on the day establish a 1-0 HT lead.
  • Rio Ave have taken the most corner kicks in just two of their last seven LPFP home games.
  • Portimonense have received the most cards of the game in all but one of their last six LPFP away trips.
