Aves vs Portimonense
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 1 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:15 UK / 21:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Clube Desportivo das Aves (Vila das Aves).
Portimonense managed their maiden victory of the season last Sunday when they saw off Vitoria Guimaraes 3-2 at home. Antonio Folha’s men showed a great fighting spirit to regain the leaf on two separate occasions in the affair and eventually win it thanks to a 86th-minute goal from Shoya Nakajima. Can Portimonense make it two on the bounce with this result under their belts?
The visitors will definitely come into the Aves clash higher on confidence given Jose Mota’s troops took only one point from five games so far in the season. Aves have been struggling badly to produce in the final third as they failed to find the back of the net in any of last three outings across competitions. The most recent of failures came last weekend away at Estadio da Luz where Benfica eased past Mota’s men 2-0.

Aves vs Portimonense: Prediction
Aves have been struggling for goals lately, but we have to mention they played the likes of Maritimo and Benfica in last two league matches. The Portimonense tie should provide them a fair chance to boost up the attacking confidence as the visitors shipped ten goals so far in the season.
Portimonense allowed two goals in all five league matches so far and we can’t see them keeping a clean sheet here. The BTTS option thus looks decent at 1.75 as the visitors will certainly get themselves into serious goal-scoring chances against such an opposition.
The value is big with the draw at 3.20, while the more conservative punters can back Portimonense not to lose at the odds of 1.50.
