Rio Ave started Primeira Liga with a defeat against Famalicão away from home, but after that they beat Aves by a significant 5-1 at home and in the last matchday they beat Sporting with a 3-2 score at Alvalade. The team is having a good time and is very confident.
For this match Rio Ave has a significant loss, Taremi, to the Iranian national team, Nadjack is out for injury in the next 6 months, and Since this game refers to matchday one, Aderllan Santos, Lucas Piazon and Diogo Figueiras are also out because they were not registered in the league on matchday one.
Vitória Guimarães lost 5 of the last 6 away matches in the Liga NOS. They haven’t won any league games this season, started with 2 draws against Boavista at home and Famalicão away and on the last day they lost 3-0 at Porto.
For this match the visitors have a true crisis of absentees, more than half a team between injured, expelled and national teams and this will be a big problem. In the absent lot are key team players like Rochinha and Davidson (punished), probably the best players of Vitória this season. We have also injured players, like André André, Wakaso, Mikel, Musrati and Joseph. Players not yet registered for the first round, Denis Poha, Bruno Duarte, Lucas Evangelista, Marcus Edwards, Leo Bonatini and Touré. And finally Tapsoba and Sacko are representing their selections. To get an idea of the magnitude of this problem, coach Ivo Vieira will have to move 7 of the last 11 starter who faced Porto, they are Sacko, Tapsoba, Musrati, Poha, Lucas Evangelista, Davidson and Rochinha.
Although the odds have already dropped a little, I believe it still has great value with Guimaraes completely devastated with 15 players missing. On the other hand Rio Ave de Carvalhal has made good performances and scored many goals, I believe the team will be victorious before its audience.
