Chaves vs Rio Ave Free Betting Tips 08.03.2019

In a desperate situation in the fight against relegation, Chaves faces Rio Ave this Friday, March 8, in a clash that opens the schedule of the twenty-fifth round of the Portuguese Championship version 2018/2019. The meeting will be held at the Municipal Stadium of Chaves and kick-off scheduled for 17:30 (Brasília time).Ten days remain for the closing of the First League, which has 18 participants and sends the last three places to the Second Division. International tournament spots through the tournament are four. Only the champion goes straight to the Champions League. The vice also has a chance to play in the Champions League, but he has to go through the qualifiers. Similarly the third and fourth placed have places in the Europa League.


Without winning four games (two draws and two defeats), Chaves is in the seventeenth – penultimate – placing the league table of the First League. He has 20 points (five wins, five draws and 14 losses). He will enter the field on Friday knowing that even the victory is not enough to get him out of the relegation zone.That’s because the difference for the Maritimo, fifteenth placed and first team out of Z3, is four points. The advantage, however, dropped when looking at the last five rounds. In that period, Chaves scored five points (one win, two draws and two losses) against four (one win, one draw and three losses) of the rival.This pace, however, is very slow for those who need to reverse the scenario. As principal, Chaves presents a few better numbers, although not enough to make it stop being a candidate for relegation. It is the third worst in this issue in the Portuguese Championship. Of the 36 points that played in his stadium, he won 13 (three wins, four draws and five losses) having scored 11 goals and conceded 14.It shows, however, a trajectory of growth. In the last five matches in his stadium he managed to score in four. It was two wins, two draws and only one defeat. For Friday’s meeting, casualties due to injury problems should be two. The goalkeeper Ricardo (14 performances in the 2018/2019 edition of the Portuguese Championship) and midfielder João Teixeira (eight matches, no goal) are in the infirmary.

Rio Ave

The eighth place in the classification gives Rio Ave a little more peace of mind in the matter of relegation. However, the team spent the last three rounds without scoring. Halted in the 28 points (seven wins, seven draws and ten losses) just did not have his situation complicated because the ‘class of the fund’ presents very low performance. Tondela, sixteenth and first team in Z3, for example, also lost the last three games.
So the difference between them remained in the five-point home.As a visitor, Rio Ave maintains a near-average score pattern. It is the tenth place in that ranking having come home with 11 (three wins, two draws and six losses) of the 33 points that played away from their dominions scoring 14 goals and suffering 17.For Friday’s meeting, there will still be a price to pay for the home defeat and a 2-1 defeat by Braga in the twenty-fourth round. Croatian midfielder Nicoka Jambor (16 games in the 2018/2019 version of the Portuguese Championship without a goal) has been sent off and will have to comply with suspension. He reinforces the list of casualties that also has defender Toni Borevkovic (13 games, no goal) and striker Gelson Dala (13 games, four goals), delivered to the care of the medical department.
