MATCH ANALYSIS

Carlos Carvalhal promised more from his side after Rio Ave's 1-0 opening defeat to Primeira Liga new boys Famalicao. Desportivo Aves, relegation candidates last season, started with a 2-1 loss at Boavista before Sunday's 3-1 win over Maritimo. This one, too, should provide plenty of goals.
