Foot Predictions shows the confrontation of the First League on Sunday, between Rio Ave and Famalicão, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Famalicão will try to drag themselves away from the Premier League table on Sunday when they travel to Estádio dos Arcos to face Rio Ave.
The hosts are looking for their third consecutive victory in the championship here, while Famalicão tied for the last time, ending a series of four consecutive losses in the championship.
Rio Ave recorded an impressive 3-1 win away from home, in the last attempt of sixth-placed Vitória de Guimarães.
Miguel CardosoThe team’s men led 2-0 thanks to goals from Carlos Mane and Rafael Camacho, but Ricardo Quaresma pulled one back to the hosts before Gelson Dala immediately restored the advantage of two goals from Rio Ave, guaranteeing his second consecutive victory in the championship.
This followed a 2-1 home win over Tondela when Jhon Murillo put the visitors in front, before Mane and Camacho scored in the second half and sealed the return victory.
As a result, Cardoso’s team returned to the ninth position in the Primera Liga table, restoring their position in the first half after having been four games without winning in the championship.
It is Rio Ave’s attack that has disappointed this campaign, with only two teams scoring less than their 16 goals in 19 league games.
Cardoso will see this game as a good opportunity to improve that offensive record and extend the winning streak to three, when facing one of the worst defensive teams of the championship, in Famalicão.
The visitors ended a series of four games without a win last time, by drawing 0-0 at home against Belenenses.
Silas added the first point in the third game at the helm of the club, after having previously suffered 2-0 defeats with Benfica and Moreirense.
He will be somewhat concerned that his team has not scored a goal in all three games since his appointment, although he has one more league goal than Sunday’s opponent, having scored 17 in 19 Premier League games.
It is Famalicão’s defensive record that led to his fall to the bottom of the championship, with no team suffering more than the 32 goals he scored this season.
However, he is by no means condemned to relegation at this stage, with Silas’ team just one point behind Gil Vicente in the relegation playoff, and two points behind automatic safety, which means that a victory can change the situation a lot. .
But they face a team of Rio Ave, who are very confident, and will try to continue their rise in the category with yet another victory on Sunday.
