Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estoril and Rio Ave face each other at Estadio Antonio Coimbra da Mota in the opening match of day 3. Estoril continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and the fact that they defeated Famalicao 2-0 in their first home game of the season is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism.
Defender Goncalo Esteves serves a one-game ban against Rio Ave, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. Luis Freire’s troops, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team losing to both Vizela (0-1) and Sporting CP (0-3), and given their difficulties in front of goal, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. There are no fresh injury worries in away side ahead of the trip to Estoril.
