Rio Ave vs Steaua (Europa League, 06.11.2014)

Rio Ave hope to get the first points in their Europa League group as they get ready for the return leg against Steaua, the leaders of the group. Group J has very interesting standings, seeing as three teams have six points out of three matches and the only thing to separate them is the goal difference. Should any of these three teams make one wrong step; the group situation will change drastically.

Rio Ave lost the first three games of the group, and managed to score only one goal, against Steaua two weeks ago. Lionn is the player with the better knowledge of Romanian football as he played for CFR Cluj and could help with tempering down Steaua’s counterattacks. In their domestic league, Rio Ave are on the 8th place with 14 points out of nine matches, and their latest result includes a minimal defeat against Benfica. This points to another low scoring affair, even if the first game had three goals, and Rio Ave have 2.45 odds to score just one goal.
Steaua are the current Liga I leaders, with a 5 points advantage from the second place. If anything, the team are in very good spirits after winning the local derby against Dinamo Bucharest with 3-0. Szukala, one of the goalscorers mentioned that it’s no secret his team are the favorites to win since they have more than 10 years of experience on international stage, yet there have been matches to smash over-confident teams down. Rusescu is Europa League’s goalscorer with 5 successes, two of which were scored against Rio Ave. Coincidentally enough, Rusescu played in Portugal last season, but for Braga.

Over 2.5 goals per match has 2.15 odds with Titan Bet, both teams to score 1.85 odds, and Steaua to win from behind has 9.50 odds. Rio Ave to win the first half with 3.30 odds, Steaua 3.10 and Rio Ave with a first half handicap of +1 has 1.30 odds. An outright Rio Ave win has 2.75 odds, draw 3.30 odds, and we’re betting 8 units on an outright Steaua Bucharest win with 2.60 odds from Titan Bet.
