Team News

Rio Ave
  • Other than Joca, Luís Freire will have a full squad to pick from.
  • The gaffer will likely return to a 3-5-2 formation after using a 4-3-3 formation in the 3-1 defeat to FC Paços de Ferreira.
  • Hernâni should get the nod over Ruiz upfront.
  • Ivan Jaime is having a wonderful end to the season and will be full of confidence here.
  • Moura and Sanca are back available and will boost João Pedro Sousa's options.


  • Rio Ave FC lost to FC Paços de Ferreira last weekend and will look to end this season on a positive note as they aim to reach ninth place in the league table. At home, they've only won once in their last 4 matches.
  • FC Famalicão put in a decent performance against FC Porto, but were unable to avoid a 4-2 defeat in a match that had four penalties. They're no longer fighting for European football, but will look to at least keep eighth place.
  • Without being pressured to win, both sides should give us an entertaining affair, with chances at both ends. Playing at home, Rio Ave FC might have the edge in this game.
