Boavista Prediction

Boavista sit in the lower reaches of the Primeira Liga and just one league position above the relegation zone ahead of this crucial encounter this Sunday as the hosts look to pull themselves away from the immediate relegation danger.

However, this may be easier said than done as recent weeks have seen the hosts suffer defeats to Moreirense, Sporting Braga and Maritimo as Boavista have lost three of their last four matches in the Portuguese top flight.

Boavista have posted mixed results in recent weeks on home turf as they’ve recorded wins against Tondela and Vitoria Setubal but have also been on the end of losses to Porto and Maritimo so an end to their current losing sequence is by no means guaranteed in this clash.

Boavista’s home record stands at a shaky 3-1-4 5/6 as the goals have been hard to come by for the hosts as they’ve failed to score in 4 of their 8 home matches to date.


Key-Facts – Boavista v Portimonense

  • Boavista have lost 3 of their last 4 matches in the Primeira Liga
  • Boavista have failed to score in 4 of their 8 home matches to date
  • Portimonense have lost just once in their last 5 matches


Portimonense Prediction

Portimonense currently sit in the top half of the Primeira Liga which is thanks to a recent upturn in results which have seen the hosts suffer just one league defeat from their last five matches which was a 2-1 defeat away at Maritimo, but having secured three wins during this recent sequence, the visitors will be fairly confident of getting a result at Boavista this evening.

Wins over Vitoria Setubal, Feirense and most notably, a 2-0 home win over second placed Benfica will give the visitors hope of walking away with at least a point in this one. An away record of 2-0-6 5/15 still requires further attention though.

However, the two wins they’ve gained on the road so far this season were gained at Nacional and Feirense who both occupy league positions very close to Boavista, and with the likes of forwards Nakajima (5 goals) and Martinez (4 goals) up front, Portimonense look a reasonable bet to get something from this encounter.

Betting Tips Verdict

Boavista have stuttered in recent weeks while Portimonense have lifted their game in recent matches.
