Moreirense and Rio Ave, the two teams who are almost level on points in the table, face each other at Parque Desportivo Comendador Joaquim de Almeida Freitas on Friday for a match of the 28th round in 2019-20 Portuguese Primeira Liga.
The home side is happy with the outcomes they have been getting of late. In any case, a portion of those could have gone to wins on the off chance that they didn’t concede silly goals. The defense needs to remain solid against Rio who has been scoring defense in the league.
Rio had an incredible unbeaten run going until their recent defeat to Ferreira. They have done fantastically during that time of play where they managed to draw previous champions and get significant wins in away matches. In any case, the recent defeat may have influenced them and away game could demonstrate perilous after such an outcome.
Moreirense restarted the season in style, with Filipe Soares’ goal helping them get every one of the three points from the Boavista game. Ricardo Soares’ troops expect to rejoin the race for a spot in European competitions, yet the game against Rio Ave will be anything besides a walk in the park for them.
Carlos Carvalhal’s men restarted the season with a 3-2 loss to Pacos de Ferreira, and, to exacerbate things in any event, for the fans, full back Matheus Reis was sent off after 62 minutes. Brazil international misses Friday’s football match through suspension, and given Moreirense’s performance in the 1-0 win over Boavista, home win ought to be thought of.

Moreirense vs Rio Ave Prediction
Rio Ave has some recent successes against this restriction here. Be that as it may, they are conflicting in their recent league games also. A 9 match unbeaten run was continuing for them in the league until they lost to a less than impressive team like Ferreira, that also at home soil. This spell incorporated the draws against teams like Porto and Sporting.
The hosts are reliably scoring in their league matches. They have never failed to score since the beginning of this current year. Be that as it may, a similar ability can’t be seen in defending the goals. They have conceded in 8 of their last 10 matches both home and away. Rio has scored as of late against both Sporting and Porto.
