Sporting Lisbon vs Rio Ave – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

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.

Sporting Lisbon to win both halves

Rio Ave produced a resilient performance in the opening half of the match against Vizela but still came out with a defeat. Sporting Lisbon were unable to start the new season with a victory, but they are likely to come out victorious especially at home. The performances of Sporting Lisbon in front of goal might be too much for Rio Ave to handle especially in an away match.

Total goals over 2.5

Sporting Lisbon were able to witness an incredible six goals in the first league match of the season. It is very unlikely that a similar outcome will take place at the Estádio José Alvalade this weekend, but Rio Ave may not be a great contributor of goals in this game. Sporting Lisbon, however, should be able to continue their excellent scoring run of 14 goals in the last six home games against Rio Ave.

Both teams to score – no

Rio Ave have surprisingly been able to score in four out of the last five away matches against Sporting Lisbon. The defensive performance from Sporting Lisbon was not very convincing in the opening match, but they should manage clean sheet against the newly promoted team.
