Rio Ave vs Maritimo Prediction & Tips
Rio Ave and Marítimo meet this Sunday, at 16:00, in Vila do Conde, in game of the second day of Liga NOS. In the first round, the vila-condense team lost 2-0 at Santa Maria da Feira while the Madeira club beat Santa Clara 1-0 with a late goal and a penalty. After the excellent campaign in 2017/18, Rio Ave saw coach Miguel Cardoso leave for Nantes and has not had an easy start to the season, having already been eliminated from the Europa League. Soon after the expulsion of the European tests the formation now commanded by Jose Gomes beat Portimonense, by 0-2, for the League Cup, but defeat in the stronghold of Feirense returned a panorama of uncertainty. The islanders, also with new coach (Cláudio Braga), won, but did not convince. Who will lead the best in this duel of the second round of the Portuguese championship?
