Boavista vs Belenenses
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 16 February 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI, Porto
2020 has brought nothing but great results and good news if you are fan of Boavista. The second most popular squad from Porto has been on the rise for weeks now, winning the last three encounters in Primeira Liga.
Bookies see that as very realistic scenario, offering 1.80 odds on home victory here. Can they make it four in a row this weekend at Bessa Seculo XXI against table strugglers Belenenses?
Boavista vs Belenenses: Head-to-head
It was quite shocking to notice that last 12 head to head matches between Boavista and Belenenses ended Under 2.5 FT. The most recent one in August 2019 has been won by Porto squad 1-0.
Belenenses were victorious in only eight out of 39 encounters against this opponent. The average number of goals scored in those is 2.02 per game.
Boavista vs Belenenses: Prediction
Things are not looking good for the visiting team at the moment. Belenenses is sitting in 15th place on the table, winning only 18 points from 20 games. They have the worst goal difference in the league of -21, while the recent form is looking awful as well. Belenenses have lost four out of the last five matches to Gil Vicente, Benfica, Vitoria Setubal and Santa Clara. The only victory came at home against Portimonense.
Boavista are far from being consistent at this stadium. They have won only three out of ten games so far, drawing four and losing three. Offensive line is not doing great either, bagging only 17 goals so far.
Despite the great streak they have up and running, we don’t see any value in backing Boavista at such low rate. 40% of their home games ended without a winner. Belenenses are going to be desperate to end the losing series too, so picking a draw is our main choice.
Under 2.5 FT is probably one of the biggest banker bets available throughout Europe this weekend.
