Tondela vs Rio Ave – Liga NOS: On this Saturday evening match of Liga NOS’ 13th round…
Tondela, managed by Pepa, and Rio Ave, managed by Miguel Cardoso, meet in Tondela, at the João Cardoso stadium,
with the two teams being separated by 5 points going into this match, with the locals having 12 points and sitting in 12th place while the visitors have 17 points and are in 6th place.
The home side comes into this match still on a more or less comfortable position, having a comfortable 5-point advantage over the relegation zone,
although a victory from Moreirense and/or Estoril might leave them further from achieving their objective of avoiding relegation, something that still worries the team.
This team is coming off a streak of results that can be considered negative, considering they only have 2 victories since the end of August.
As for Rio Ave, visitors in this match, they come into it on a comfortable position on the league table, being close to the European qualification zone, being able to get closer to it if their direct contenders slip up.
In any way, and despite this being a team that intends to play good football,
the team has one of the worst attacks in the competition, slowing down the good momentum they had at the beginning of the season, winning only 1 league match since the end of September.
Tondela vs Rio Ave – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Most of Rio Ave’s matches have ended without many goals, given their good tactical consistency, which means they are a team that doesn’t score much, it’s certain, but they also don’t concede a lot of goals.
This way, and against a Tondela that also needs points, I believe we will have a balanced match and, therefore, without many goals scored by the teams who will face off.
