Rio Ave and Tondela meet at Estádio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube, in a match for the 15th round of the Primeira Liga. These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. Rio Ave registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of Rio Ave

After 6 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses, the home team is in the 7th position, havinf won 21 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Benfica by (3‑1), after in the previous match they have won (3‑1) at home, against Arouca. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 28 conceded; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 14 goals scored and 10 conceded. In their last match, for the Taça da Liga, they got an away win against Leixões by (1‑2). In the last 7 home league matches Rio Ave has a record of 5 wins and 2 losses, so they have won 15 points out of 21 possible. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 11 of the last 26 matches have ended ended with Under 1,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 4 of their 14 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

The Rio Ave squad goes to this match with an away victory against Leixões, by 1-2, in a game for the League Cup. In this match the great objective of Pedro Martins’ team will be to return to victories for the league, and so it is foreseeable that the team will play in an offensive manner. Besides, the home team knows the opponent’s defensive difficulties in this game. It is important to highlight that Guedes is the best goalscorer of the Rio Ave team, with six goals. For this match versus Tondela, the home coach can count with nearly all the players.

Confirmed Lineup: Cássio, Marcelo, Lionn, Aníbal Capela, Edimar Fraga, R. Bressan, J. Kayembe, A. Wakaso, Tarantini, Guedes, Ukra.
Coach: Pedro Martins.

Analysis of Tondela

The away team is currently in the 18th position of the league, with 5 points won, after 1 win, 2 draws and 11 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Sporting Braga, by (0‑1). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Vitória Setúbal, by (1‑3). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 14 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 14 goals scored and 22 conceded. In the last 6 away league matches Tondela has a record of 1 draw and 5 losses, so they have won 1 point out of 18 possible.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 6 losses in the last matches and they haven't won any of the last 6 away matches. In their away matches there are a few frequent results: at half‑time 1‑0 (3 out of 6 matches) and 0‑0 (3 out of 6 matches) and after the 90' 1‑0 (3 out of 6 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 2 of the last 14 matches for the Primeira Liga, and have never reached half‑time in front. In 14 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 12 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Tondela has been feeling the tough reality of the first division of Portuguese football, and besides being in the last place of the competition, the team ads six consecutive defeats in this competition. Hereupon, it is foreseeable that coach Petit will play in the usual 4-5-1, privileging defensive organization and long passes to the attack in order to take advantage of the space in the opponents backs. However, the defensive fragilities of the visiting team are well visible in all the matches. We highlight Diego Souza, one of the most important pieces in the tondelense tactical system. For this game the visiting coach can’t count on Edu Machado due to injury.

Confirmed Lineup: Cláudio Ramos, Bruno Nascimento, J. Oto'o, Luís Tinoco, S. Thicot, Hélder Tavares, Lucas Souza, Luis Alberto, J. Murillo, Dolly Menga, Nathan Junior.
Coach: Petit.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game is for Rio Ave to score the first goal of the match. Given the current form of both teams, it is foreseeable that Rio Ave dominates the whole match and that they will have the best opportunities to conquer the victory. Besides being the visiting team, Tondela does not have the necessary weapons to impose themselves over the opponent.
