Rio Ave vs Elfsborg by Mudhara_9er
8 goals in their last three games is proof that they are beginning to get into shape, their football is fast paced and a style that can have any supporter clapping and singing, they held mighty Benifica in the super cup but lost it on penalties. They have not yet conceded a goal at home in their first 2 competitive matches so far, 0-0 against Swedish side Göteborg and 2-0 against Setubal. Now when u know u need a win and can score goals u send out a signal to ur opponents, they did just that this weekend, with a 5-1 victory at Estoril, a team that has not lost by more then 1 goal in over 30 home matches, actually a 0-2 loss to Benifica was the only time they lost by more then a goal in 20 liga games .
Rio's football is good and if they can get it together tonight they will feature in the group stages.
Elfsborg were in a similar position last yr, they drew 1-1 at home but won 1-0 in denmark to FCN, so they know how to handle whatever pressure theh might meet, the team score twice and have the quality to do so again, they are a better team then Göteborg and sit 3rd in the Swedish league, I think Rio have played well and have the home advantage tonight but the swedes can push this game into extra time. Rio have to win but they will do more then that they will qualify!!
