Rio Ave looking to spoil Benfica's party

Vila-condense will not facilitate Lisbon club's mission

silvio.jpgIf Benfica had any notion that Rio Ave were just going to lay down and allow them to stroll through Sunday's title-deciding match, they have another thing coming as full-back Silvio has attested that his team will show up to play and act as spoilers.

It is a nothing match for Rio Ave as the club have long since assured their safety in the Liga and are too far back from securing a European berth, but there are other factors that the team will feed off.

"We will maintain our philosophy of going into each game to win," said Silvio. "It is a match that garners a lot of great enthusiasm as, not only will we be playing against Benfica, but also the stadium will be full and that acts as motivation."

"We will certainly make life difficult for Benfica as we are working hard and have attitude to earn points."

Rio provided a tough test last time around. I don't think it will be a walk in the park but that should make it an exciting match to watch. This will be a great final.
