Rio Ave vs Vizela – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

This will be the first meeting between Rio Ave and Vizela since 2008. Both teams have been through a mediocre set of results in friendly games.

The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing. Ladbrokes are our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Rio Ave victory

Rio Ave are likely to be highly motivated for this opening game of the campaign. They are returning to the top division after a year. Vizela finished just outside the bottom last season and the team only managed three victories in away games last season. One cannot expect a sizeable improvement on this front. The friendly games have also not gone well for Vizela apart from the recent win over Pacos Ferreira.

Total goals under 2.5

Vizela have struggled going forward with a string of disappointing pre-season games apart from the victory over Pacos Ferreira. Rio Ave have not been scoring a lot of goals either. This match is likely to end up with less than 2.5 goals.

Both teams to score – yes

The two teams do not carry a lot of offensive threat. It is quite clear from the friendly games that they might struggle to get a lot of goals. Last season, Vizela came up with just an average of one per game. However, a game against the potential competitor for the relegation places could bring out the best in both teams.

Rio Ave vs Vizela: Match Preview and Team News

Rio Ave

Rio Ave were able to get automatic promotion last season after finishing top of the second division. They did so by managing to score 52 goals – far from the highest in the league – while being very strong at the back. Manager Luis Freire continues to do an excellent job despite the lack of experience. André Pereira is out with a cruciate ligament rupture while Junio has a fractured fibula.

Vizela

Vizela have had a disastrous away form last season and they end up losing at both halves in the final three away games. A new season presents a good opportunity for Vizela to improve on this front. Ivanildo will be unavailable for the game due to suspension, while manager Alvaro Pacheco could give a debut for Diego Rosa.
