In the quarterfinals of the Portuguese Cup, Rio Ave will host the Desportivo das Aves at Estádio dos Arcos, in Vila do Conde. Playing at home, being motivated with the 5th place in Liga NOS, being the holder of a very consistent defense and superiorly guided by Miguel Cardoso, a coach with very deep knowledge of Football, Rio Ave is widely favored to move on and to reach the final half of the event. The villagers won the last 2 official home clashes with this geographical rival and in the first round of the Liga NOS dominated the game at Vila das Aves, which finished 0-0 on the final score. In the First League Rio Ave has a difference of +16 goals for the Aves after 17 days, a formation that has risen this year of division and that does not have the defensive and offensive weapons of the Vilacondenses. The Aves conceded goals in all the last 5 bouts and it will not be easy to overtake the home team’s defense as well as hold off their offensive glow. We believe in clear home supremacy in this duel between rivals!
