Vilacondenses were thriving in the final third recently. The bagged five goals in back-to-back league wins over Portimonense and Santa Clara. Brazilian striker Galeno has been one of the main catalysts for the rise in form. He notched two goals and represented a constant threat to opponents’ goal so far in the season.

Rio Ave vs Boavista: Head-to-head

The most recent head to head record also favours Rio Ave.

Vilacondenses won three on the spin and four of last five against Boavista.

They notched two goals in each of two last term clashes against Os Axadrezados.

Rio Ave vs Boavista: Prediction

Galeno, Gelson & company should have plenty of room to maintain their fine spell of form in the final third past the vulnerable defense of Boavista’s here. The visitors shipped as many as six goals in last two league losses to the likes of Santa Clara and Chaves.

Moreover, Boavista were dreadful travellers in the previous term of Primeira. They had a dismal record of 2 wins, 4 draws and 11 losses on the road last season in spite of coming eighth in the league ladder at the end.

Vilacondenses are a major force in front of the home patch on the other side. They won 11, drew 3 and lost 3 of 17 home games last term. They also won three consecutive head to head matches against Os Axadrezados coming into this.

We don’t need much more to call the home win an absolute must-take pick at the odds of 1.90. Since the visitors revealed way too many holes at the back against mediocre opposition of late, we will alternatively back Rio Ave to net two or more goals at the odds of 2.20.
