Desportivo Aves Prediction

Desportivo Aves continue to flirt with relegation danger as they sit just one league position above the bottom three courtesy of a slightly better goal difference than Maritimo who are level on 11 points with Aves.

A poor recent sequence of results for tonight’s hosts have plunged them back into the relegation mire as Aves have lost three of their last four matches with recent defeats to Nacional, Sporting CP and Belenenses along with a point against Vitoria Guimaraes.

Although Aves have made themselves a hard unit to break down at their Estádio Clube Desportivo das Aves and have captured wins over Portimonense and Rio Ave in recent times, these have been offset by recent losses to Santa Clara and Nacional amidst an average looking home record of 2-2-3 11/10.

In addition, Aves have kept just one clean sheet on home turf so far this season and their defence is likely to be severely tested by Porto’s quality on Thursday night.

Porto Prediction

Onto Porto then, and the visitors hold a three point cushion at the top of the Primeira Liga ahead of their trip to Desportivo Aves on the back of an impressive seven-match winning streak which has seen the visitors score 14 goals for and concede just 3 in reply.

Within this impressive run of form, Porto have also kept a total of four clean sheets and with a trip to bottom half outfit Desportivo Aves who are flaunting with relegation danger, Porto will fancy their chances of making it eight wins on the bounce here this evening.

Away from home, Porto have also registered an impressive record to date of 5-0-1 10/4 which includes winning their last three on the trot on their travels with victories at Maritimo, Boavista and Santa Clara, while also winning seven of their last eight on the road, a record which spans into the latter stages of last season.

Forwards Marega (7 goals), Brahimi and Tiquinho (4 goals apiece) are likely to create further havoc here although Aboubakar (4 goals) is an injury doubt for Porto.

Betting Tips Verdict

Aves’s recent form has certainly nosedived and they’ll be up against it when an in-form Porto come to town. The visitors look set to cover the asian line here.
