Rio Ave Rivalry

The only club that gets mentioned in terms of having any kind of special rivalry with Rio Ave is Varzim, which currently competes in the Liga Pro, the second division in Portugal. This is mostly due to the geographical proximity of Povoa de Varzim, the town where it is based, with Rio Ave’s Vila do Conde.

There was, however, a moment of added tension between the neighbours in 1984, when Rio Ave head coach Felix Mourinho, father of today well-known manager Jose, left Rio Ave after a relatively successful spell to join Varzim.

Rio Ave History

The club were founded in 1939, the year the world went to war for the second time, but they wouldn’t accomplish anything of real note until the early 80s. They finished fifth in 1982, and that, along with that of 2018, remains their best result in the league. Two years later, led by Mourinho senior, they reached the Taca de Portugal final which they lost 4-1 to Porto. They repeated the feat in 2014 and this time they won a place in the Europa League group stages, which remains their only involvement in a major European competition to date.

Given the lack of proper success in the course of their long history, the mere fact that they continue to stick to the top half of the table is impressive.
