Rio Ave VS Tondela

Rio Ave and Tondela face at Estádio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube, in a match for the 30th round of the Primeira Liga. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 02‑12‑2017, Rio Ave got an away win by (1‑3). The head‑to‑head record between these two teams couldn't be more balanced, since there were 1 draw and 2 wins for each team in the last 5 head‑to‑heads. The home/away factor is worth special atention, since although this is a match between 5th and 12th of the league table, it’s also a match between the 6th best team in home matches and the 6th best in away matches.

Analysis of Rio Ave

The home team is currently in the 5th position of the league, with 43 points won, after 13 wins, 4 draws and 12 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Estoril, by (2‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Vitória Guimarães, by (3‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 14 points in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 28 conceded, against 29 points won at their stadium, with 22 goals scored and 10 conceded. In the last 10 home league matches Rio Ave has a record of 7 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, so they have won 22 points out of 30 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 7 home matches. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 0‑0 (7 out of 14 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 13 of their 29 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 2.

Rio Ave comes for this match after a defeat at Vitória de Guimarães ground, by 3-0, thus adding the sixth defeat in the last ten played matches in the Portuguese championship. In this way, the Vila-Condenses let Maritimo get closer in the fight for the 5th position of the championship. For this match, the coach Miguel Cardoso should continue to line up in 4-2-3-1 benefiting from the ball possession and successive organizing attacks: Chico Geraldes is responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process. On the other hand, Hélder Guedes is one of the great highlights of Rio Ave with 9 scored goals. Absences won’t be a problem for this match.

Confirmed Lineup: Cássio, Marcelo, Lionn, Nélson Monte, Yuri Ribeiro, Diego Lopes, Chico Geraldes, João Novais, Pelé, Tarantini, Guedes.
Coach: Miguel Cardoso.

Analysis of Tondela

The away team is currently in the 12th position of the league, with 31 points won, after 8 wins, 7 draws and 14 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Boavista, by (1‑1). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Portimonense, by (2‑2). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since they have won 16 points in away matches and 15 at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 28 goals conceded at home, against 10 goals scored and 14 goals conceded in away matches. In the last 10 away league matches Tondela has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 30 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 12 of the last 14 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 29 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 15 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Tondela comes for this match after a 2-2 draw against Portimonense, thus adding the fourth followed match without proving the taste of victory in the championship. Note that the visiting team is in a comfortable position on the league table. In this match against Rio Ave, the coach Pepa shouldn’t run too far from his match model, benefiting the organization of his block and successive quick transitions. We emphasize the quality in the finishing of Tomané, player who has already scored 7 goals in this competition. For this match, the coach won’t count on Murilo and Nicholas Ansell, both injured.

Confirmed Lineup: Cláudio Ramos, Ricardo Costa, David Bruno, Jorge Fernandes, Joãozinho, Joca, Bruno Monteiro, Claude Gonçalves, Tómané, T. Boyd, Miguel Cardoso.
Coach: Pepa.

Betting suggestion:

Rio Ave has more quality in the different moments of match, compared to the opponent of this journey, and in this way the tendency is to dominate the ball possession, even playing as a visiting team. On the other hand, the Tondelenses will fight with their weapons, however, without great strength to conquer the three points. So, and taking into account these factors, we find it interesting to risk in favor of the home team in this match.
