Coming from an excellent season; the best ever for the club. Finishing 5th with the biggest amount of points was great especially since the club didn't even make that much of an investment. Of course, for a club like Rio Ave, any new season will bring new challenges: this time club will need to overcome the departure of highly successful gaffer Carlos Carvalhal. The unexperienced young Mário Silva was the choice for the job. The former left-back is at least a promise of attractive football. Nuno Santos and Taremi were arguably the club's best players last season and they both left to join big teams Sporting and Porto. Al Musrati also an important departure. André Pereira came from Porto, signed a permanent deal with Vilacondenses and will have the task of fitting in the shoes of Taremi in attack. Gelson Dala and Carlos Mané will now have more room to shine, now that Nuno Santos is gone. Kieszek will now have a good competitor in Leo Vieira; Aderllan remains the defensive leader; Tarantini's influence will naturally decline, while Geraldes seems determined to be an icon for the club on his second spell. Felipe Augusto and Diego Lopes will try to have a definitive season. Nikola Jambor recovered from a year-long injury and will aim to get near the standards shown on his first year for the club. If he achieves it, he will be a great adding to an already interesting midfield. Ronan returned from loan to add firepower and physical dimension to attack. Team seems to lack a proper replacement for Al Musrati in midfield to provide physical and defensive attributes to balance with the skills of Lopes, Augusto and Geraldes.

Target


Repeating qualification to European competitions would be great, but the main goal is to continue the legacy of great, entertaining, attacking football combined with results.

Season Review
2019/2020

№5: Rio Ave FC

A record-breaking season for Vilacondenses and a big celebration in the end as the team reached Europa League qualification in the very final minute of the season. With Carlos Carvalhal at the helm, the team was guaranteed to be back at their traditional attacking and attractive style. Carvalhal was also able to assure high levels of competitiveness. First half of the season was already a good show of the team’s potential, as Rio Ave finished it just 4 points short from Sporting in the 4th place. However, there was still some irregularity on the team’s overall performances. Rio Ave was able to be more consistent in the second part, mostly due to a bigger number of options in attack that provided a bigger margin for Carvalhal to adapt to different challenges and change approach from one week to another. New signing Taremi was the greatest of many good individual performances over the season. The Iranian striker was an immediate hit, but grew over the season and got really close from being top goalscorer in entire league. Nuno Santos, Piazon and Diego Lopes were excellent support for Taremi in attack. Dala and Musrati were great additions in the winter. Aderllan a true leader at the back. Filipe Augusto found back his best football at Vila do Conde. Carvalhal won’t stay at the club, so there will be a big decision to make in next few days. Not every coach will suit the team’s very unique spirit.
