Rio Ave

Preview
Sporting Braga and Rio Ave face at Estádio Municipal de Braga, in a match for the 12th 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. Nevertheless, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Primeira Liga, on 06‑10‑2018, they tied (1‑1). Ricardo Horta (28' ) scored for Sporting Braga and Gelson (34' ) for Rio Ave. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of Sporting Braga

After 4 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, the home team is in the 9th position, havinf won 15 points so far. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Vitória Guimarães by (0‑2), after in the previous match they have tied (2‑2) at home, against Famalicão. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the UEFA Europa League, they got a home tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers by (3‑3). In the last 5 home league matches Sporting Braga has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 8 points out of 15 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 11 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Sporting Braga are returning to the championship going through one of the best moments of the season in terms of confidence, as they have met the goals set at the beginning of the season, although in the League the campaign is below expectations. Even so, the victory, in the last matchday, the "minhoto" classic against Vitória de Guimarães (2-0), brought Sá Pinto's group together from European places. After that, Braga secured the qualification for the Portuguese Cup Round of 16 by beating Gil Vicente (1-0), and on Thursday they drew 3-3 in the draw to Wolverhampton in a match that confirmed qualifying for the knockout round of the Europa League. An energetic reaction from the Braga set, which recovered from 1-3 to 3-3 with goals in the second half by Paulinho and Fransérgio, after André Horta opened the count.

Confirmed Lineup: Eduardo, Diogo Viana, Pablo, Bruno Viana, Sequeira, João Palhinha, Fransérgio, André Horta, Wilson Eduardo, Ricardo Horta, Paulinho.
Coach: Sá Pinto.

Analysis of Rio Ave

The away team is currently in the 6th position of the league, with 15 points won, after 4 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Benfica, by (2‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Vitória Setúbal, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 16 conceded; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 27 goals scored and 19 conceded. In their last match, for the Taça de Portugal, they got a home win against Alverca by (1‑0). In the last 5 away league matches Rio Ave has a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 15 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 11 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Rio Ave has been having a season where they have yet to truly get their fans excited, often feeling that the team is capable of more but cannot bring that quality into view. With the same 15 points as Braga, Carlos Carvalhal's side returns to the Liga after a hard fought triumph in the 4th round of the Portuguese Cup, against Alverca (1-0). In the last round of the championship, the "Vila-Condenses" managed to return to the victories in the championship, also at home, against Vitória de Setúbal, also by the minimum margin (1-0). Behind, are four consecutive matches without winning in the championship, in the clashes with FC Porto (0-1), Paços de Ferreira (0-0), Moreirense (1-1) and Benfica (0-2).

Confirmed Lineup: P. Kieszek, Aderllan Santos, Junio, Matheus Reis, Pedro Amaral, T. Borevković, Filipe Augusto, Vitó, M. Taremi, Bruno Moreira, Carlos Mané.

Betting suggestion:

Both teams have been having intense duels in recent seasons, being two of which are most likely to play positively in Portugal. At home and moralized by qualifying in Europe, Braga will look for a triumph that can bring them closer to Sporting, in 4th position, against a more expectant Rio Ave, something that, with Carvalhal, who has already done theoretically harder games such as against Benfica and FC Porto. The good moment of the team of Sá Pinto and the bigger initiative will surely make Braga closer to the desired three points.
