Rio Ave prepare for this game after a 1-1 Primeira Liga draw against Famalicão.

In that game, Rio Ave managed 51% possession and 13 shots on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Rio Ave was Aderllan Santos (78'). Famalicão got 13 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Rúben Lameiras (21') was the scorer for Famalicão.

Fewer than three goals per match were scored during 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Rio Ave have taken part. In terms of the goal split from this period, opposition teams scored a total of 5 and Rio Grande got themselves 7. Despite that, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern shall persist in this game.

Their past results show that Rio Ave:

  • haven't beaten Benfica in their last 10 matches in the league.
  • are undefeated in their previous 4 home league matches.
  • are without a home win in the past 2 league games.

Benfica come into this game after a 3-2 Primeira Liga win vs Farense in their last fixture.

In that game, Benfica managed 58% possession and 12 shots at goal with 7 of them on target. For Benfica, the goals were scored by Pizzi (15') and Haris Seferović (79', 87'). On the other side, Farense got 14 shots on goal with 9 on target. Jonatan Lucca (54') scored for Farense.

Illustrating their penchant for high-scoring encounters, we’ve had goals 23 times in the prior six matches in which Benfica have sent out their troops, making it an average of 3.83 goals each fixture. Their opponents have got 6 from this total.

A look at their previous results shows us that Benfica:

  • haven't been defeated by Rio Ave in games played away from home for the previous 5 league games. Travelling fans have really enjoyed these clashes.
  • have not been beaten in their last 3 league matches away from home.

👥 Head to head

A review of their past head to head meetings going back to 26/08/2017 reveals that these fixtures have been miserable for Rio Ave. They have not been able to register any victories at all whereas Benfica have dominated them, beating them in 83 per cent of those matches played.

There were also goals galore in those games, with 24 overall which averages out at 4 goals per meeting.

🗞️ Team News: Rio Ave

Junio (Fibula Fracture) and Ronan (Unknown Injury) will be missing for Rio Ave boss Mário Silva.

ℹ️ Team News: Benfica

Benfica manager Jorge Jesus has not got a full squad to pick from. Andreas Samaris (Achilles tendon problems), Jan Vertonghen (Facial Fracture), Mile Svilar (Corona virus) and Adel Taarabt (Tear in the abductor muscle) will miss out on this game.

⚡ Prediction

For this match, we think that Benfica are likely to create a good amount of chances and successful shots on target.

At the same time, Rio Ave will not find it easy scoring goals of their own but we think it’s quite likely that they will be pulling one back during this clash, too.

Therefore, we are anticipating a pretty comfortable 1-3 win for Benfica at the end of this one.
