THE PREDICTION

These sides meet with just one goal’s difference separating them in mid-table of the Primeira Liga on 15 points apiece and both were just three points above the relegation zone coming into this weekend’s fixtures. Neither of Rio Ave or Santa Clara are in particularly great shape, though both have recently snatched an impressive draw against Sporting Lisbon and Benfica, respectively, but they have lost three games in each of their last five to stay above the real danger for now. What makes this result even more difficult to call, is that Rio Ave’s home form is their best whilst Santa Clara’s away form is their strong suit. In what could end up a stalemate, then, draw no bet in favour of Rio Ave and both teams to score looks a useful option. The hosts are unbeaten in two and just edge this on recent form.
