Leader in League Goals of 2021/22: Aziz/P. Mendes 11
Leader in League Assists of 2021/22: Pedro Amaral 6


Key Arrivals: Jhonatan (Guimaraes), Patrick William (Famalicao), Joao Ferreira (Benfica B), Paulo Vitor (Rayo Valladolid)


Key Departures: Gelson Dala (Al Wakrah), Gabrielzinho (Al-Wasl), Pedro Mendes (Sporting)











Player to watch: Aziz, the striker spent last season on loan from Guimaraes before Rio Ave made the move permanent this summer and will get his first crack to show what he has got in the top flight.


Outlook: Rio Ave returns back to the top flight in Portugal after an absence of a season but do not expect them to make any sort of noise in the league this season. Expect Rio Ave to be a middle of the pack club but they have enough talent to stay away from the relegation zone.
