Rio Ave Marítimo betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

In an attempt to resume the path of good results after a poorly achieved series and a limp start to the championship, Rio Ave should try to take the reins of the match early on. On the other hand, Marítimo has shown itself with a more uncomplicated posture in tactical terms, so the forecast is for a good football game, with goal opportunities from both sides, not least because spaces should not be lacking for the attacks if they manage to override the defenses, since the Madeiran team can fall back to the relegation zone if they don't grab a good result.

The Rio Ave team arrives on this 11th round of the Liga NOS after a median campaign during the first 10 rounds, where they added just 11 points, as did Famalicão and Belenenses, two opponents with lower goals than the Vila-Condenses . In the last round of the championship, the group led by coach Mário Silva disappointed on a large scale, after having managed to win Famalicão (2-1) and qualify for the next round of the Portuguese Cup.

The away team is currently in the 12th position of the league, with 10 points won, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Farense, by (2‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Belenenses, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses in away matches, with 12 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 16 conceded.

In the last 5 away league matches Marítimo has a record of 1 win and 4 losses, so they have won 3 points out of 15 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 6 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In the last 17 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Marítimo has not managed to make a start of the championship in the image of what they intended at the beginning of the sporting year, which has even led to the departure of coach Lito Vidigal from the technical command of the Madeirans. For now, the team continues to be handed over to Milton Mendes, who has been doing an interesting job in the short time that is ahead of the island group. At the entrance to the next round, the Madeirans appear in the 13th position of the leaderboard, with the same 10 points as Nacional and Moreirense. After having recorded three consecutive defeats in championship matches, Marítimo finally returned to the victories on the last day, winning 1-0 against Belenenses. In the middle of the week, the team confirmed their qualification in the Portuguese Cup, after beating Salgueiros (2-1, after extra time), at home.

Confirmed Lineup: Amir Abedzadeh, Léo Andrade, Cláudio Winck, Renê Santos, Zainadine Júnior, Marcelo Hermes, Franck Bambock, Rafik Guitane, Jean, Rodrigo Pinho, Joel Tagueu.
