The current match day of the Portuguese Primeira will close up with four consistent games. In the last of them Sporting Lisbon welcomes Rio Ave at Jose Alvalade Stadium. Recently the hosts have been promoted to the next stage of the Europa League. The clash against Viktoria ended with under 2,5 in total. Will they demonstrate other style tonight?

Sporting possesses its traditional place under Benfica and Porto. Actually other national big ones have eight and six points of advantage over the Green and Whites. At the same time, the Lions have a four-point gap over the fourth Braga.

The hosts earned 62 points after 26 games. They have won 19 times, drawn in five cases and lost twice. The last defeat dated on March 02 in the key struggle against the Dragons. Also the modest Estoril beat them more than two months ago.

As we see, both unpleasant cases have occurred after the winter break. Sporting has a perfect start of the season the same as Porto.

It is fourth in terms of goals for and third in terms of goals against.

Rio Ave is the typical mid-table team. Nowadays it is situated just under the Big Portuguese Three and Braga. The Big River earned 40 points and cannot really compete with the national giants. The visitors have twelve wins, four draws and ten losses. Their away performance looks poor. They cannot earn nothing within the last four games. They have the same number of scored and conceded goals. 1,27 goals on an average.

Rafael Leao and Daniel Podence will miss this game due to the injuries. As well as Tarantini from Rio Ave.

Sporting beat Rio Ave in the last two H2H meetings with the score, 0:1 and 1:0.

Rio Ave’s last game as well as Sporting’s last two fixtures ended with three goals sharp. Rio Ave have failed to score in the last two matches at away.

We expect to see a tough encounter tonight. The guests can use the hosts’ hard schedule and interrupted their goalless line on the road. Sporting will score more than the opponent. Thus, we predict over 3,0 in total and advise to bet on this with a good coefficient of 2.12.
