Rio Ave vs Jagiellonia Bialystok Match Preview

Rio Ave seem to have retained their consistency through the pre-season, but the defeat in the first leg at Bialystok leaves them with a few question marks.

The Portuguese outfit came for the first leg of their Europa League Qualifiers clash on the back of a nine-game unbeaten streak, where they beat Feirense, Espinho, and Chaves as well as held Famalicao to a draw since the early July.

Rio now hope to get back to winning ways in front of the home crowd at Estádio do Rio Ave.

Jagiellonia will have different plans for the day but they have, interestingly, been more convincing on the road recently. Ireneusz Mamrot’s men have seen a convincing 2-0 away win at Arka on the weekend and is expected to give their Portuguese rivals the run for their money.

Rio Grande look to capitalize on the home advantage as well and we expect the visitors very motivated as well, which promises a great contest to watch. They’ve been regularly scoring and conceding goals over the past couple of weeks and we now hope for goals from Bialystok as well.
