Belenenses vs Boavista
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 30 August 2019
Kick-off at 21:15 UK/ 22:15 CET
Venue: Estádio Nacional do Jamor (Lisabon – Oeiras).
Last time around either had finished next to each other, in the top half of the table. But in extreme contradiction, the teams have chosen opposite paths so far this season. While Boavista remained unbeaten in their three match-days, their opposite number has failed to post a single win yet.
As such, it goes without saying that for Belenenses this upcoming tie is a must-win one. The same could be said for their guests too, but for completely different reasons. Nearest competitors of Boavista, Benfica, and Braga are taking on each other in their next match-up, and it’s a huge opportunity to make some major in-runs into the podium spots.

Belenenses vs Boavista Prediction
Belenenses is winless in their last five matches in a row and lost three of them. At home, they lost four of their previous five games and was winless in nine of their former eleven. They are also winless so far this league season, whereas their counterparts are unbeaten in their Primeira campaign, and importantly, boasts of the superior h2h stats.
Boavista also won two of the last three h2h clashes and recorded a 2-0 win the last time these two met.
As such, count on them avoiding a loss at the least this Friday.
Going on, Belenenses has not scored a goal in their last five match-ups on the trot and failed to do so in eight of the last eleven encounters against this opponent. At home, they have not scored in their last three appearances as well.
With these in mind, count on the in-form guests to keep a clean sheet for the first half, and maybe for the whole game.
