The hosts will enter the second-last gameweek of the season in the relegation playoff spot with 28 points, while the visitors are in 10th position with 35 points earned over the same period.

Portimonense’s top-flight survival has now come down to the last two matches of the season, with this being their final home game before facing Farense in the final fixture of the campaign next weekend.

At is stands, Paulo Sergio’s side are five points above the automatic drop and slipped three points from safety last week when they suffered a 3-0 defeat to champions-elect Sporting Lisbon at Jose Alvalade Stadium.

Goals from Paulinho, Francisco Trincao and Viktor Gyokeres secured the points for Sporting, who went on to clinch the title after Benfica suffered a surprise defeat to Famalicao. Meanwhile, Portimonense lost ground to safety, with Estrela and Boavista both managing a point each in their games.

With this being their final home game of the season and having won just four of 16 away matches, this contest is an absolute must-win for Portimonense.

Unfortunately, their record of late suggests that this will be anything but a straightforward three points, having failed to win any of their last eight home games, losing six and drawing two.

January’s victory for Rio Ave over Portimonense ended a six-game winless run in the league and moved them out of the relegation zone. Since then, they have not looked back, losing just twice in their next 15 matches while steadily closing in on the top half.

Last week, Rio Ave put on an excellent performance to beat European qualification contenders Vitoria Guimaraes 2-1, marking their tenth successive league game without defeat, dating back to mid-February.

Jose opened the scoring in the first half before Ghanaian international Emmanuel Boateng double the advantage after the break. Vitoria grabbed a consolation through Nuno Valente late in the game but could not find an equaliser.

That result also secured Rio Ave’s top-flight status for next season, as they are now seven points clear of the bottom three with just two games remaining and just two points away from breaking into the top half of the table.

While Luis Freire’s side have failed to win a single away game this season, they have been very tough to beat, with many referring to the side as the ‘stalemate specialists’, having drawn each of their last five league matches on the road and seven in their last eight.

Portimonense vs. Rio Ave Head to head

In the previous 24 meetings between these two teams, Portimonense have claimed five victories while Rio Ave have won 12, and they have drawn in seven. Rio Ave have scored 35 goals and conceded 24 in the process.

Portimonense Team News

Portimonense are still without the services of Zinho due to an injury sustained back in February, which should see Hildeberto Pereira, Luan Campos and Helio Varela continue in the three-man frontline.

Filipe Relvas, Alemao and Pedro Henrique are expected to line up in defence, with Moustapha Seck operating in a wing-back role down the left flank.
