Venue: Estádio do CD das Aves (Vila das Aves).
A team from the relegation zone, hosts a team gunning for European qualification, at the Estadio Aves, this Saturday, to complete ten match days in the Portugal Primeira Liga.
Aves will be pretty pleased with themselves after recording an away victory against another relegation-threatened side, Chaves. A three-goal affair saw Aves win for 1-2. Aves scored the first goal and took the lead in the 19th minute. Chaves tried to get back into the game with a goal in the 48th minute, but the 56th-minute winner by Amilton secured the win for the visitors.
Rio Ave will be absolutely furious with themselves after letting a chance to score a win at home, after leading for two goals. The scoreline was 3-1 in favor of Rio before Nacional struck back in the 79th and 89th minutes. To put into context, Nacional is the last team on the table, and Rio had the advantage of playing at home.
