Braga vs Rio Ave – Free Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

Braga ended up going through more disappointing results as the team were beaten 2-1 by Vitoria Guimaraes in the recent match. Rio Ave managed to make the most of home advantage by picking up a crucial 1-0 success over Chaves.

Draw

Rio Ave would have been a significantly better force coming into the game if the match was at home. However, they can still aim to take advantage of the poor form experienced by Sporting Braga in the recent encounters. There have been three defeats in the last four games for Braga, as they have been sliding down in terms of confidence. The European action has not worked out very well for the team and the low confidence was very much apparent in the recent loss to Vitoria Guimaraes. This Braga vs Rio Ave prediction anticipates a stalemate against Rio Ave.

Total goals over 2.5

Sporting Braga have been all over the place and defensively the team has been able to witness more than 2.5 goals in four out of the last five matches. Rio Ave may not provide the same level of confidence when it comes to scoring goals in away matches, but this Braga vs Rio Ave prediction would back over 2.5 goals in this game.

Both teams to score – yes

Rio Ave have been unable to score in three out of the recent four matches on the road, but they are likely to be motivated by Braga’s big defensive problem in recent weeks. The Braga vs Rio Ave odds see a lot of value in backing both teams to score.
