Braga Rio Ave betting prediction


Betting suggestion:

The prospect is for a relatively balanced match between two candidates for Europe, although Braga is the clearly stronger team here.Rio Ave has been disappointed in terms of the football practiced, which has been reflected in the results in a “fair” way.Thus, playing at home, it is likely that the Carvalhal team will be able to overlap in a more or less evident way, but sufficient to justify the conquest of the three points in dispute.

Sporting Braga and Rio Ave face at Estádio Municipal de Braga, in a match for the 10th round of the Primeira Liga. The head‑to‑head history at this stadium, favours the home team, since in the last 7 head‑to‑heads they won 4, tied 2 and lost 1. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Primeira Liga, on 02‑12‑2019, Sporting Braga won by (2‑0). Paulinho (41' ) and Ricardo Horta (80' ) scored the goals of the match for Sporting Braga. Rio Ave registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

The home team is currently in the 4th position of the league, with 18 points won, after 6 wins and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Farense, by (1‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Belenenses, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses in away matches, with 34 goals scored and 23 conceded; against 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 30 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the Taça da Liga, they got a home win against Estoril by (3‑1). In the last 4 home league matches Sporting Braga has a record of 3 wins and 1 loss, so they have won 9 points out of 12 possible. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 9 matches for this competition.

In the last 9 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 6 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Braga stands out as one of the main candidates to qualify for European competitions and arrives at the 10th round of Liga NOS with a positive path towards their goals.Occupying the 4thplace in the league table, the team led by coach Carlos Carvalhal has 18 points, one less than FC Porto and two more than rival Vitória de Guimarães.After leaving, surprisingly, defeated from the visit to Belenenses (2-1) in the last round of the championship, the Minho group reacted positively, with three victories in a row, in three different races.First, with a 2-0 triumph against Zorya, in the Europa League.Then, with a rout to Montijo (0-7), in the Portuguese Cup.More recently, last Thursday, Braga qualified for the “final four” of the League Cup, where they will defend their title, after a victory against Estoril (3-1), at home.

Confirmed Lineup: Matheus, Nuno Sequeira, Bruno Viana, Vitor Tormena, Ricardo Esgaio, André Castro, Fransergio, Ricardo Horta, Wenderson Galeno, Paulinho, Iuri Medeiros.

Analysis Rio Ave

The away team is currently in the 9th position of the league, with 11 points won, after 2 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Gil Vicente, by (2‑0). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Boavista, by (0‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 11 conceded; against 5 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 19 conceded. In their last match, for the Taça de Portugal, they got a home win against Famalicão by (2‑1). In the last 5 away league matches Rio Ave has a record of 1 win, 3 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 6 points out of 15 possible. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 13 of the last 21 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 2 of the last 9 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in front in all of those 2 matches and held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in all of them. In 9 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 9 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 8 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Rio Ave has arguments to aspire to more than just maintenance, but they haven’t run a campaign worthy of a candidate for Europe until this stage.With 11 points, the same as Famalicão and Belenenses, the Vila-Condenses occupy the 9th position in the overall classification of the Liga NOS, five points away from the qualifying places for the UEFA competitions.After adding just one point in the last two rounds of the championship (2-0 defeat by Gil Vicente, away, and 0-0 draw, against Boavista), the group led by Mário Silva returnedsmiling.Last weekend, Rio Ave received Famalicão, won by 2-1 and moved on to the round of 16 of the Portuguese Cup.

Confirmed Lineup: Pawel Kieszek, Ivo Pinto, Aderllan Santos, Toni Borevković, Pedro Amaral, Pelé, Diego Lopes, Francisco Geraldes, Filipe Augusto, Gelson, Carlos Mané.
