Rio Ave vs Paços de Ferreira – Liga NOS: On the match that will close out this day of matches in the 3rd day of 2018, in Portugal
Counting towards the 16th round of Liga NOS, the local side Rio Ave and the visiting side Paços de Ferreira face off in Vila do Conde, at Estádio dos Arcos.
The local side is currently in 6th place, having 24 points, while the visitors come into this match in 15th place, having 13 points.
This will be the second meeting between the two teams this season, after the two having met on a League Cup match in October.
The home side is making a good campaign so far, marked by their consistency, under several points of view and indicators,
being on a comfortable position of the league table, really close to the European qualification zone, and still alive in Taça de Portugal, only having been knocked out in Taça da Liga.
The team is also coming off a good streak of results in the league, only losing 1 match in the last 2 months.
As for Paços de Ferreira, they are making a season well below what was expected from them, being very close to the relegation zone and not being able to improve their results with the arrival of Petit for the coaching job,
since they are coming off a very complicated streak of matches, winning only 1 match since the end of October, with that being their only win with this new manager.
Rio Ave vs Paços de Ferreira – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Between two teams that are coming off a streak of high-scoring matches (Rio Ave has had a lot of goals on their last 6 matches, as well as Paços), I see this match continuing that trend.
