Team News

Santa Clara
Rio Ave
  • Paulo Henrique serves a match ban due to an accumulation of bookings. Boateng and Ygor Nogueira should start in the heart of the defence as a result.
  • Bruno Jordão could have another chance to start, after a promising debut.
  • Tagawa and González will be in competition to feature upfront here.
  • Other than Joca, there are no injury concerns for the visitors.
  • Samaris picked up his fifth yellow card of the season last time around and will serve a suspension here.
  • Oudrhiri could have replaced him, but he's also suspended, which paves the way for Baeza to start in the middle of the park.


  • Relegation threatened CD Santa Clara lost to a direct rival last time around, losing 1-0 to FC Paços de Ferreira, which extended their winning drought to 15 matches. They could end the weekend at the bottom of the table if they don't get a win here.
  • Rio Ave FC delivered a wonderful performance against Gil Vicente FC last time around, extending their wonderful run of form at home – they’ve won the last three matches at Estádio dos Arcos – despite being down to ten men in the last 30 minutes of the match.
  • The visitors are still dreaming of European football next season and will be motivated to pursue it here after a delightful win last time around. They’ll face a side that is pressured to win, which could benefit their cause. On that note, an away win would not shock anyone.
