Vitória de Guimarães vs Rio Ave – Liga NOS : Ten points separate Vitória de Guimarães and Rio Ave on the league table, which is a practically irrecoverable difference.
With Guimarães having said goodbye to the hopes they still had of reaching the European spots. For them, this is a step backwards when compared to what they had reached last season,
but after the departure of several players and the dismissal of their manager, things couldn’t have gone well for the team.
Still, they will have, this Friday, an opportunity to show that, in other conditions, they could have been stronger than Rio Ave, which is currently in 5th place.
On the last 7 matches, Vitória de Guimarães has only won 1 match, against Desportivo das Aves, having drawn the other, at home, against Belenenses, getting 5 losses that have been affecting the team’s record.
The arrival of José Peseiro ended up not being beneficial for the team, that is still having trouble scoring.
Rio Ave, in turn, kept resisting to their rivals’ advances and, despite being far from being a team on its best moment of form (with the departure of Rúben Ribeiro and the acknowledgement of the team by their opponents weighing in on their performances),
they keep holding on to the spot that might grant them access to the Europa League. The team has been stronger at home at this stage, but they have quality to impose themselves against Guimarães.
Vitória de Guimarães vs Rio Ave – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With this also being an emotional match, with Vitória being the more historical club, but that is being overtaken, on the pitch, by the quality of Rio Ave, the fans should demand a display of strength here.
But, besides that, the match will be decided on the way each of these teams will present itself on the pitch.
