VIDEO: Koka scores as Rio Ave held to draw
Ahmed Hassan ‘Koka’ scored an equalizer for Rio Ave against Moreirense as the two teams played out a 1-1 draw tonight.
Rio Ave rose to seventh place following their second consecutive draw in the Primeira Liga. They now sit seven points below the Europa League qualification spot.
André Simões opened the scoring for the visitors 17 minutes into the game. However, the home team fought and didn’t sit back.
Rio Ave snatched an equalizer late in the first half, with Koka netting his 14th in all competitions, and his 11th in the Portuguese top flight this season.
The second half was goalless, but it saw numerous attacks on from both teams. Rio Ave dominated the possession but could not turn their dominance into a goal.
The game ended in a 1-1 draw, which is the same result that separated the two teams in their last meeting back in September.
