Rio Ave v Newcastle Match Prediction and Free Tips

Newcastle betting - Cisse.jpg

Newcastle’s preseason takes them to Portugal to take on top division side Rio Ave on Saturday evening. The Portuguese finished 6th last season and should be a test for Pardew’s men.

The issue with pre season is that it is horribly unpredictable. However Newcastle started pre season strongly with a 4-2 victory over Motherwell and looked to have played well. With more senior players joining the squad for the trip, they look good here and the price is nice too at 5/4 with Bet365.

The Toon had a great first half on Tuesday and were 3-1 up at the interval and odds look good on them to be leading at half time and full time on Saturday evening, Bet365 are offering 11/4 that they are doing so.


Despite expecting a win, there should be goals. Pre season is usually full of them and Newcastle’s last game ended 4-2, Rio Ave’s ended 7-1. It may be short odds at 73/100 with Bet365 again but should be an absolute banker for this match. If the market was available I’d go for more goals but at the time of writing, markets for more goals weren’t available.
