Football forecast for Rio Ave vs Paços de Ferreira
Rio Ave will play against Paços de Ferreira in Primeira Liga and we got a Football forecast for the match. The game is on Sunday, June 7 from 21:00 UK at Estádio do Rio Ave Futebol.
Rio Ave is in 6th place with 38 points after 24 matches. The team is only 4 points behind the 4th place. Rioavistas are unbeaten in their last 9 matches in the league. Their last game was on March 7 when they visit Porto and everyone expected a victory for the home team but the match finished 1:1. If we look for a not good tendency is that Rio Ave won only one of their last 4 clashes. However, during that period they draw also against one more team which is in the top 4 – Sporting CP.
Paços de Ferreira is in 16th place with 22 points after 24 games. The team is fighting for their place in the league because they are only 3 points ahead of the relegation zone. The Beavers form was great before the season was paused because of the pandemic as they won 2 of their last 3 clashes. It all started with a victory at home against Famalicão 2:1 and then they also beat in their visit Desportivo Aves 1:3. Their last game was against Vitoria Guimaraes and they lost it at their stadium 1:2. Before these two wins, the team of Pepa was in a series of 6 matches without a victory in Primeira Liga.
The upcoming match is very important for both teams. Rio Ave needs three points so they can stay close to the teams in the top 4. Paços de Ferreira’s situation is worse because if they don’t win matches will be relegated. There have been 3 or more goals scored in each of Paços Ferreira’s last 4 games so I expect that series to continue and both teams to score. Football forecast: BTTS
