Our forecast for this Portugal Primeira Liga game:
Team in the spotlight (Rio Ave):
Rio Ave, also known as Rio Grande, is a Portuguese team that participates in the Primeira Liga. The club was established in 1939 and their home matches take place at Estadio dos Arcos, a venue with a capacity of 12,815 spectators.
The team’s primary jersey is green with white stripes, while their shorts are also green. When playing away, Rio Ave wears white jerseys and shorts. The biggest achievement for the club was during the 2014/2015 season when they competed in the Europa League group stages as Portugal’s representative. Although Rio Ave finished in last place in Group J, they made history by earning their first win in the competition. They defeated Danish club Aalborg 2-0 at their home stadium, Estadio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube.
Former Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao is considered one of the club’s most notable footballers. Manchester City first-choice goalkeeper Ederson played for Rio Ave in the past as well.
