Rio Ave - Sporting Braga betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:30 on 17/04/2021 played @ Estádio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube refereed by Nuno Miguel Serrano Almeida

Rio Ave are no strangers to surprises but with 4.75 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

Sporting Braga will have to maintain the high level of focus against Rio Ave. They can’t afford any mistakes and errors if they plan to run away home with three points in the bag.

Although Rio Ave’s previous match ended in a draw, their supporters have a lot to be happy about. The situation seemed desperate at half time when they were losing a seemingly impossible matchup against Boavista – and a 3:3 draw doesn’t seem bad comparatively.

The away team seemed to be heading towards an easy win in the last round of the Primeira Liga. Sporting Braga took a lead against Belenenses in the first half but suffered an unexpected dip in their game which resulted in a disappointing 1:1 home draw.

The last 3 times we saw Rio Ave play as the away team, they had serious issues stopping the ball from getting into their net, conceding more than 5 times. Hopefully, they’ll have better luck at home.

Sporting Braga netted 6 goals in the last three away games, implying a very strong attack-minded performance even as visitors.

Sporting Braga are 4th in the standings going into round 27. It’s too late in the season for them to be considered serious title challengers, which marks a Champions League qualification as their current ambition. It’s quite possible that they will reach it thanks to the fortunate matchup this Saturday.

It’s clear that Sporting Braga are the favourites in this matchup, and they have the numbers to back that up. They faced Rio Ave earlier this season and snagged a decisive victory which they’ll be looking to repeat.

With no injuries reported on either side of the pitch, both coaches have their full rosters at their disposal. As such, the odds remain firmly in the visitors’ favour.

Our advice is to stay on the safe side and go for the Over 2.5 Goals market. It’s reliable, very probable, and available at odds of 1.91 if you use the Betway sportsbook.
