Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Rio Ave will be aiming to make amends for the Taca de Portugal defeat to Oliveira Hospital when they take on Portimonense on Matchday 10. Rio Ave failed to spoil Benfica’s party at Estadio da Luz, with the team dropping to 13th place in the standings, but they should take advantage of Portimao’s poor form. Joao Ferreira is back to contention after he was ineligible to face the Eagles.
The visitors, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Vizela and Porto, and given their difficulties in front of goal, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. There are no fresh selection worries in the away team, while defender Zie Ouattara could be recalled to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the shocking Taca de Portugal loss to Vilaverdense.

Portimonense welcome their rivals in black and white shirts and black shirts, whilst yellow is dominant colour of their away kit.
The black and whites finished the 1984/1985 Primeira Liga campaign in 5th position in the standings and, as a result, booked their place in the UEFA Cup. Portimonense did well to Partizan 1-0 on their debut in the European competition, but they suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to the famous Serbian club in the reverse fixture at Yugoslav National Army Stadium.
Fellow Algavre clubs Farense and Olhanense are considered the club’s main rivals. Jackson Martinez is one of the most notable footballers who played for the club. The Colombian attacker is considered one of the most successful attackers in the history of Porto as he scored 67 goals in 90 appearances for the Dragons in the Primeira Liga.
