Rio Ave vs Pacos De Ferreira – Primeira Liga.
Estadio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube, Vola do Conde – 15 February, 20:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
After very exciting week in Portugal Primeira Liga, where we had chance to witness the biggest derby in the league between Benfica and Porto will be concluded on Monday with match of Rio Ave and Pacos de Ferreira. Since both teams are currently sitting at the top half of the table, we should expect very interesting match, especially from the home side which took one point from Sporting last week. Odds on home victory are 9/10 at the moment, which could be considered as high because Pacos de Ferreira have been on awful run lately. It is no surprise to be an underdog with 16/5 odds when you are winless for last six matches. Rio Ave were more successful in last match between these two opponents played in late November 2015. Marcelo and Heldon have secured a victory with their first half goals, while Helder Lopes just set the final 1 – 2 score.
If we exclude their heavy 5 – 1 defeat to Sporting Braga in late January, Rio Ave are having very decent year so far. As already mentioned they have held their ground against Sporting Lisbon last week, and managed to beat Vitoria Setubal just few days before that. Marcelo was goalscorer once again and that match ended in their favor 2 – 1. They are now on very solid 7th position, only one point behind their Monday opponents.
Pacos de Ferreira have lost three out of their last six matches, but at least their forwards are doing decent job. They have scored at least one goal in all those matches. Bruno Moreira is having a season of his life; so far he scored 13 goals and brought a lot of foreign scouts to matches of Pacos de Ferreira.
