Rio Ave – Arouca Predictions (21.04.2017)


Rio Ave - Arouca Predictions

The Arouca, after the departure of Manuel Machado, seems to have finally reacted. After losing 7 straight games, Lito Vidigal left the post in the defeat with Benfica. Manuel Machado entered and Arouca had another 5 consecutive defeats. Now with Jorge Leitão, in three games they score 4 points, the result of the tie in Paços de Ferreira (1-1) and now victory, at home to Feirense (2-0). In this 30th day, they move to Vila do Conde to face Rio Ave. The Vila Condenses, are in 7th place, play a nice football, but the feeling is that they have a team to do more and better. Still in the last round they lost in Tondela (2-1). But who has Marcelo, Roderick, Petrovic, Tarantini, Gil Dias or even Gonçalo Paciência, is very talented to only be in 7th place and so far from Europe! For this classification, much contribute the results away from home, where for example, lost 4 of the last 5 games. But at Arcos Stadium, Rio Ave is stronger and will have a good chance here to score 3 points. Expectation, to see if Arouca maintains its good moment.
