Rio Ave Preview – Can Rio Ave see off Italians?

Rio Ave entered the Europa League at the 2nd qualifying round stage where the Portuguese outfit secured a valuable and solid 2-0 win away from home at Bosnia-Herzegovina side, Borac Banja Luka, which was followed up with a 3rd qualifying round victory over Turkish side Besiktas (away) and albeit on penalties after the scores were level at 1-1 after 90 minutes.

The domestic top flight has only just started for this season and Rio Ave have made a slow and perhaps a little tentative start to the new Primeira Liga as they’ve drawn both of their matches to date, 1-1 away at Tondela and a 0-0 draw at home with Vitoria Guimaraes.

On the Europa League front, Rio Ave have lost just one of their last seven ties overall but have managed just three wins (only two of which have been achieved in normal time), and have lost just once in their last seven ties at home too.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

AC Milan Preview – Can AC Milan extend winning streak?

Putting pre-season friendlies aside (which incidentally resulted in four straight wins), AC Milan bring a six-match winning streak in competitive matches into this crucial Europa League play-off tie with Rio Ave which includes winning their two qualifying round matches in this competition.

Victories over Irish club, Shamrock Rovers, in the 2nd qualifying round and a 3rd qualifying round 3-2 home win over Norwegian side, Bodo/Glimt, ensured their progress into this play-off stage while the bigger picture shows that AC Milan have lost just two of their last eight ties overall.

However, with just three away wins from their last eight away ties in the Europa League, AC Milan are far from enjoying a walk in the park against Rio Ave but they’ll be confident that their winning streak can get them over the line in this ‘winner-takes-all’ tie.
