Boavista vs Aves
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 7 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI (Porto).
Both Boavista and Aves are struggling badly at the start of the new Primeira Liga season. They both sit in the danger area coming into Sunday’s affair at Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI.
Whereas such a slow start was kind of expected from Aves, not many experts predicted Os Axadrezados to stand third from bottom after six rounds. Jorge Simao’s men did have a tough schedule, but they were still way too easy to break down so far in the season and we have reasons to call it an underwhelming campaign for them.
Boavista shipped as many as 11 goals so far. They allowed as many as eight goals in last four matches, including four away at recently-promoted Santa Clara in early-September. Can Simao find the recipe to fix defensive holes here against Aves?
Boavista vs Aves: Head-to-head
Teams have four wins apiece coming into their landmark 10th head to head encounter.
The home court advantage plays a massive role whenever these two likes come across each other.
Boavista won three and drew one of four H2H games with Aves at their Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI.
Boavista vs Aves: Prediction
Aves were at the very foot of the ladder with just a single point from five rounds. However, they finally managed to produce a decent showing last weekend beating Portimonense 3-0 in front of the home fans in Vila das Aves. Right-winger Vitor Gomes was the one who inspired the success by completing a hat-trick. Can Jose Mota’s troops build on such success and take advantage of Boavista’s poor spell of form?
Since the hosts have been very easy to break down of late, we have to go with Aves to score a goal at 1.57 odds. The hosts are still favourites for reason if we take a look at the head to head record as well as team’s quality on paper. This is why we will alternatively back Boavista to net two or more goals at 2.20.
