The victory of Rio Ave against Benfica may be the only thing that most people know about them. Normaly they have a good defensive team with strong fastbreaks by Hassan.
But in that game there are some contigencies. Hassan got injured in the game against Benfica and will not play. But that's the minor problem of Rio Ave. 3 of the 4 usual starters of the defensive line will not play. Tiago Pinto (son of João Pinto) (left defender , 22 games played), Lionn (right defender, 20 games) and André Vilas Boas (central defender, 15 games). None of them will play agains Porto. Miranda and Marcelo (original central defender of the team) will not play to due to long time injuries.
So Rio Ave will have many dificulties to escalate the starting 11.
Porto is in the best moment of the season. They simply can't loose, because it will cost all the chances they still have to get the title.
In the last game they played really well, even without Jackson Martinez. Quaresma is in top form, and it will be a problem to Rio Ave because they will play with unroutined left and right defenders.
I believe that Porto will win, and they will try to score fast in order to rest to Champions League. So I believe in 2 goals before 60' and then they can slow the game.
Pick Porto and Good Luck!
