Rio Ave Benfica betting prediction


Preview
Rio Ave and Benfica meet at Estádio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube, in a match for the 4th round of the Primeira Liga. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the away team, since they have a record of 4 wins and 2 draws in the last 6 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 17‑06‑2020, in a match for the Primeira Liga, Benfica won by (1‑2). The goals of the match were scored by M. Taremi (26' ), for Rio Ave, and by H. Seferović (64' ) and J. Weigl (87' ), for Benfica. The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Rio Ave presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis of Rio Ave

The home team is currently in the 13th position of the league, with 3 points won, after 3 draws. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Vitória Guimarães, by (0‑0). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Famalicão, by (1‑1). This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses in away matches; against 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. Rio Ave has won 2, tied 5 and lost 3 of the last 10 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 10 of their 24 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

The Rio Ave team comes from a memorable season, where they managed to return to the qualifying rounds of the Europa League, and will intend to repeat the feat in 2020/21. At the start of the 4th round of the Liga NOS, the hosts still haven't won, but they haven't lost either. This means that the team led by Mário Silva has three points and currently occupies the 13th position in the league table, on equal terms with Braga. In the last matchday, Rio Ave added the third consecutive draw in the championship, after leaving the visit to Famalicão with a 1-1 tie, obtained with a goal from Aderlan Santos, in the 78th minute, in response to the goal suffered in the first part. This was the way that Rio Ave found to react to the painful elimination in the penalties against AC Milan, in the access play-off to the final stage of the Europa League.

Confirmed Lineup: P. Kieszek, Nélson Monte, T. Borevković, Aderllan Santos, Ivo Pinto, Francisco Geraldes, Tarantini, Filipe Augusto, Bruno Moreira, Lucas Piazón, Carlos Mané.
Coach: Mário Silva.

Analysis of Benfica

The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 9 points won, after 3 wins. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Moreirense, by (2‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Farense, by (3‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 26 goals scored and 16 conceded; against 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 35 goals scored and 17 conceded. Their last away match for this competition ended in a win by (1‑5) against Famalicão. In the last 10 away matches Benfica has won 4, tied 3 and lost 3. 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 at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches.

Benfica intends to regain the title of national champion lost last season, in a dramatic way, to rival FC Porto. At the start of the 4th round of the new edition of the Portuguese championship, the team coached by Jorge Jesus, who returned to a home he knows well, already leads the league table in isolation, with nine points, two more than Santa Clara and three more than FC Porto, Sporting and Marítimo. After winning convincingly in games against Famalicão (1-5), away from home, and Moreirense (2-0), at home, the “eagles” suffered and made a weak display in the reception to Farense, having, however, added the three points, with a 3-2 triumph, with goals from Pizzi (15') and Haris Seferovic (79' and 88').

Confirmed Lineup: O. Vlachodimos, N. Otamendi, J. Vertonghen, Álex Grimaldo, André Almeida, Pizzi, Éverton, Gabriel, L. Waldschmidt, Rafa Silva, D. Núñez.
Coach: Jorge Jesus.

Betting suggestion:

This should be a game with a high degree of difficulty for both teams, due to the quality that Rio Ave and Benfica have at their disposal and that they have already presented in their versions of this season. To be able to take advantage of the “classic” between Sporting and FC Porto of the previous day, the “eagles” will only want to win, even to maintain or increase their lead, but they will have a Rio Ave offensively capable and that promises to contribute to a game divided and with several opportunities during the match.
