Boavista vs Belenenses
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Esdadio do Bessa Seculo XXI, Porto
Boavista’s attempts to run away from the relegation zone continue this Sunday. The Blacks and Whites are hosting mid-table team Belenenses, with a lot of pressure on their backs. They are only one point away from 16th placed Tondela, which means potential loss could push them under the red line.
As for their opponents, Belenenses should have a solid motive as well. Winning 6th place (they are 7th at the moment) would allow them to participate in UEFA Europa League. All in all, we should witness one interesting match.
In terms of the recent form, Boavista’s fans should be worried. The squad has lost three Primera Liga duels in a row to Aves, Sporting Lisbon and Vitoria Guimaraes. The back line has allowed 7 goals in those matches, and it is been a while since we’ve seen a clean sheet from them.
Belenenses are one of the most interesting teams to watch in Portugal, besides the big guns of course. They are now on a streak of four consecutive matches without a loss, even managing to win an important point against Benfica two weeks ago (2-2 FT). Overall this team has great stats when it comes to efficiency.
