Rio Ave - Nacional betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 18:00 on 05/02/2021 played @ Estádio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube

Rio Ave are expected to win here, but we can’t call such betting predictions completely foolproof. Nacional may surprise us yet, and even a tie game seems a decent possibility from where we’re standing.

Nacional stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 5.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

Rio Ave’s previous Primeira Liga match did not go their way, but not even the most stubborn fans would have predicted a different result against a team as strong as Porto . They played as visitors, and the top online bookmakers priced an away win at 9.50. They never recovered from some early concessions, and the score was brought to a conclusive 2:0 result before the end.

Nacional won their previous Primeira Liga outing 2:1, which was quite a spectacle for the fans at their home stadium. Betting against them was considered fairly safe at kick-off, and their opponents Famalicão secured an early lead. In spite of it all, Nacional managed to overtake the opposition in the second half and walk away with 3 more points to the tally.

Based on their recent performance, Nacional’s largest issue seems to be defence, especially in away games. With 6 conceded goals in their 3 previous visiting matches, Over 3.5 Goals markets seem like a solid betting option.

We can safely say that the mid-season is here, and Rio Ave’s results are far from perfect. Just three places keep them away from the relegation zone and 2 points away from the drop suggest instant improvement is needed. Despite the odds favouring them in round 17, they have their work cut out for them if they wish to go higher than the current 14th table position.

With just 17_TO_SAFE_ZONE points between them and the relegation zone and a clash with Rio Ave ahead of them, Nacional’s prospects this season seem grim going into round 17. Surviving in the Primeira Liga is likely their only goal moving forward.

There’s an interesting development over at Estádio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube. It seems both teams have been struck hard by injuries. On one hand, Rio Ave_INJURIES will not be playing for the hosts. Conversely, Nacional_INJURIES will all be unavailable on the away side. Both teams will have to deal with limited options.

An Under 2.5 Goals bet is an easy tip to offer – it’s a fairly probable outcome with betting odds priced at a comfortable 1.56. More importantly, though, the betting value it offers is surprisingly solid.

Betting tip (stake: 7/10): Under 2,5 1.56 at 10Bet
Correct score prediction: 1:1
