Portuguese – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 16 August 2019
Kick-off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Famalicao (Vila Nova de Famalicao).
The hosts have set their foot in the league after defeating Santa Clara in their first league match. They are however disheartened at the loss in the First stage Final of the Portugal League Cup. The team is off to a good start in this season, bouncing back from that loss.
The visitors advanced to the next stage of the League Cup and are about to have their first take on the Primeira Liga this season. They fared at the seventh position in the last season of the tournament. Their confidence lies on the win from the last game with Oliveirense.
The hosts lost only two games from their last ten fixtures at home, while the visitors had only six wins from their last ten away fixtures. Famalicao has discovered their scoring legs twelve times in the recent five matches at home. The guests have scored in four out of five games from their away fixture recently.

Famalicao vs Rio Ave Prediction
The hosts will be aiming to maintain their position at the top four stronger with winning this game. Their home runs are pretty much encouraging for the upcoming match. The inconsistent form of the visitors in away games will also aid them in scoring off another three points.
We can surely expect goals from both sides as their scoring spree is not so weak. There is a more probable chance for the hosts to have the lead by the end of the game and snatch away the victory from the visitors and send them back home, empty-handed.
