Boavista vs Braga
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: 28 December 2020, Monday
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Estádio do Bessa Século XXI (Porto).
Braga will be looking to start on a positive note when they visit Boavista for their first Primeira Liga after Christmas.
The visitors have been on red hot form and won 7 of the 10 games so far, while losing in 3 and importantly 2 of those defeats happened in the first games of the season.
Their last fixture was a thumping 3-0 win against Rio Ave and this helped them to stay at 4th in the table.
Meantime, Boavista are struggling at the foot of the table and they were only able to pick just 1 win whole season. But they lost just three times in the period with 6 games during the period ending in stalemates.
They are coming to this match on the back of three consecutive draws and a win here could take them temporarily out of the relegation zone.

Boavista vs Braga Prediction
Braga are one of the contender for the Portuguese Primeira Liga this season and they could cruise to a victory with relative ease on Monday against the relegation bound Boavista.
We can also expect some goals here since this fixture at this venue in recent years saw goals at either ends. Both teams to score is my first option, but the over 2.5 goals full-time is worth a try as well.
