Player to Watch: Emmanuel Boateng

Boateng top scores for Rio Ave this season with four goals and we're backing the Ghanaen forward to have another good game on Wednesday night.

Each of Boateng's goals have arrived in the last few months and his most recent arrived in the 2-0 home win over Portimonense. If Rio Ave are going to get out of trouble this season then the goals of Boateng are sure to play their part for the club, starting on Wednesday night against fellow relegation battlers Estoril.
