Santa Clara vs Rio Ave

Santa Clara are chasing a European spot, but are going through a dismal run. Rio Ave are desperately trying to avoid relegation, and are going through a tough stretch of games. By the looks of things, expect a goal fest at the Estádio de São Miguel.

As of now, Santa Clara are placed eighth in the table, and need at least a top six finish to represent Portugal in continental competitions. However, they are conceding goals in huge numbers, and this added pressure will only put extra strain on their defense.

Meanwhile, Rio Ave are in possession of the last safe spot in the table, with a lead of one point over the cut off. They too are letting in goals in huge numbers.

On top of that, majority of h2h meetings too have shown this same trend of witnessing plenty of goals.

As such, chances are high for this upcoming encounter to be a high scoring affair.

Santa Clara vs Rio Ave Prediction

Santa Clara had a total of five clean sheets from their 32 games, and they had let in three goals in their latest appearance at home.

On the other hand, their opposite number are on a nine game winless run, and they have a single win on the road since November.

Moreover, with just three matches remaining, both squads are getting desperate to fulfill their respective objectives. Add to this equation their leaky defenses, and we have a perfect recipe for a goal fest.
