Boavista vs Rio Ave
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI (Porto).
Boavista is in a mixed form in the league with three losses and two wins in their recent five clashes. The host has cleared of the relegation zone on the table only by just two points as it stands. They will return home on the back of a 0-2 win on the road against Belenenses last time out in their schedule.
Winless in the recent three fixtures in the campaign, Rio Ave is not a strong visitor to Porto. The host has only one win from their last five clashes in the league showing a shaky defense in the middle. The away team will visit after suffering a 0-2 loss at home against Gil Vicente in the previous encounter.
Since the host is likely to show urgency in the game to avoid relegation this season, they are the favorites to win with their ground advantage. Having a three-point lead over the host will push the visitor to score at least a goal and expect a couple of goals in ninety minutes.

Boavista vs Rio Ave Prediction
Boavista needs all three points to stay in the top tier next season as they are close to the relegation zone this term as it stands. Thus, we can expect the home team to come in with all guns blazing in the fixture and they have averaged one goal per game in the league until now.
Rio Ave will be held back by their winless streak in the campaign as of late this season. As such, the double chance favoring Boavista will probably be the best bet for the punters. Besides, the tip for over 1.5 goals will also come in handy regarding their current form in the league.
