In the first round of Liga NOS, Tondela will face Rio Ave at their home, at João Cardoso stadium. This first round will be recorded as there are no fans on the stands and there is no forecast for the fans to return to the stadiums. Teams with different potentials and goals. Tondela will try to avoid relegation and Rio Ave will fight for the Europa League.
Tondela has changed their coach and this new coach is also Spanish, which could hinder the team’s strategy for the first games because he does not know the Portuguese championship. In addition to this problem, Tondela’s team lost very important players, such as Claúdio Ramos (goalkeeper), Pepelu (defensive midfielder) and Xavier (winger), Toro (winger), Richard (forward), and Phillipe Sampaio (Central defense). All of these players had taken place in the starting eleven and the new players in my opinion do not have the same value. Last year the team was already weak and I think this year they are even worse. Many difficulties are expected this year for Tondela. Possible eleven: Babacar, Tiago Almeida, Filipe Ferreira, Yohan Tavares, Ricardo Alves, Jaquité, João Pedro, Rafael Barbosa, Murillo, Salvador Agra, and Strkalj.
Rio Ave is much superior compare to Tondela. Despite having a Europa League game in the middle of the week and having a few days of rest, I see value on the side of Rio Ave. Most of their players stayed and only Nuno Santos (Sporting) and Taremi (Porto) have left the team. I think the team’s weak point is the striker, because Taremi was much superior compare to Bruno Moreira. But otherwise, the team remains very strong. The new coach maintains an idea very similar to the previous coach, which benefits this team from Rio Ave. Possible eleven: Kieszek, Aderllan, Borekovic, Matheus Reis, Ivo Pinto, Tarantini, Filipe Augusto, Francisco Geraldes, Piazon, Mané, and Bruno Moreira.
I see a lot of value in this line -0.25 for Rio Ave and so we will take this opportunity. You should register for the best betting software and place your winning bet for Tondela – Rio Ave and more.
