Betting suggestion:

This will be a match that has a lot of inclination to be open and with numerous scoring opportunities in both goals. When playing at home, Benfica are a dangerous team and in this game should do score some goals. Rio Ave is competent at the offensive level, with defense-attack transitions being the team's greatest strength. Note that 4 of the last 5 club matches have ended with goals in both goals. Having said that and given all these details, risking in favor of the market "Both teams score - Yes" is a good option. This betting suggestion has expired...
