In that game, Rio Ave had 52% possession and 11 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. Portimonense got 6 attempts at goal with 1 on target.

Under three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the last 6 meetings where Rio Ave have taken part. With regard to the goal distribution in this period, opposition teams scored a total of 7 and Rio Grande totted up 4. Such a pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this match, however.

  • haven't lost in the league to Sporting Lisbon in their last 3 matches.
  • have not won against Sporting Lisbon in their last 2 league matches.
  • are without a win at home for the past 4 league games. Things will have to change soon.
