Nacional Preview – Can Nacional restore pride?

Although they’ve already been relegated, Nacional will be keen to end what has been a bitterly disappointing Primeira Liga campaign with a win when they return to their Estádio da Madeira for this upcoming clash against third from bottom outfit, Rio Ave.

Nacional sit bottom of the domestic top flight after losing 13 of their last 15 matches which has left them eight points adrift of safety with just one game remaining, while their only solitary success during this woeful run of results was a 1-0 home win against Vitoria Guimaraes.

Nacional’s home record stands at 4-3-9 18/28 and has been dented by losing six of their last seven matches but they’ve lost by a 2-goal margin against Rio Ave just once in their last 19 meetings which gives the hosts hope here.

Our betting suggestion:

Rio Ave Preview – Can Rio Ave move out of bottom three?

Rio Ave have also ended up in trouble down near the foot of the Primeira Liga as the visitors are without a win from their last 11 matches overall, losing five of these, which has landed them third from bottom and the relegation play-off spot.

Rio Ave will therefore be desperate to grab all three points here as they seek to move to safety but this could be easier said than done as Rio Ave possess a poor away record of 2-7-7 11/21 and have failed to win any of their last six matches on the road.

Indeed, Rio Ave have managed to win just one of their last 13 matches on their travels which incidentally was at Vitoria Guimaraes.
