Rio Ave is going head-to-head with Paços de Ferreira starting on 14 Jan 2023 at 18:00 UTC at Estadio dos Arcos stadium, Vila do Conde city, Portugal. The match is a part of the Primeira Liga. Currently, Rio Ave rank 9th, while Paços de Ferreira hold 18th position.
Pacos de Ferreira set out to pick up their first win of the season when they journey to the Estadio dos Arcos to face Rio Ave in round 16 of the Primeira Liga on Saturday. The Vilacondenses head into the weekend unbeaten in each of their last four home games in the league and will be looking to maintain this fine run and strengthen their position in the top half of the table.
Rio Ave were denied a third consecutive away victory as they were held to a goalless draw by Vitoria de Guimaraes when the sides squared off last Saturday. In a drab contest at the Dom Afonso Henriques, both sides were guilty of a lack of cutting edge in the final third, where they failed to pose any serious threat before settling for a share of the spoils.
Prior to that, Luis Freire’s men were denied a third league win on the bounce on December 23 when they played out a somewhat disappointing 1-1 draw against league strugglers Maritimo on home turf. Rio Ave have now picked up five wins, five draws and lost five of their 15 matches this season to collect 20 points and sit eighth in the Primeira Liga table, level on points with Boavista and Chaves.
We say: Rio Ave 2-0 Pacos de Ferreira
Rio Ave will be licking their lips as they welcome a struggling Pacos de Ferreira side to the Estadio dos Arcos. Freire have put together a solid run in front of their home fans in recent weeks and we are backing them to come away with all three points this weekend.

Rio Ave is going head-to-head with Paços de Ferreira starting on 14 Jan 2023.
Rio Ave will take to the pitch without the services of 26-year-old midfielder Joca, who sustained a severe knee problem in September’s game against Braga.
Patrick William came off with a late injury against Vitoria de Guimaraes last time out and the former Famalicao full-back is a doubt for the hosts.
Should he fail to shake off the injury in time, experienced defender Josue Sa could come into the XI, teaming up with Aderllan Santos and Renato Pantalon in the back three.
As for Pacos de Ferreira, Nigerian midfielder Abbas Ibrahim has missed the last three matches through injury and is a major doubt for this weekend’s encounter.
Off the back of a solid debut, new signing Maracas, who returned to the club after leaving in the summer of 2021, should retain his role at the heart of the defence, teaming up with centre-back partner Nuno Lima.
Rio Ave:- Jhonatan; William, Santos, Pantalon; Costinha, Guga, Samaris, Vitor; Baeza, Ruiz, Boateng
Pacos de Ferreira:- Almeida; Delgado, Lima, Maracas, Antunes; Holsgrove, Carlos, Djalo; Gaitan, Uilton, Guedes
Tip 1:- Result- Rio Ave
Tip 2:- Goal under 2.5
Tip 3:- Both team to score – No
Portugal premier division match coming up this second weekend in 2023. The head to head match history shows the last match ended in a goaless draw while the previous one before that ended in just two goals scored. They tend to play close and I will be expecting the same outcome here again today
