Boavista vs Nacional
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Tuesday, 9 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio do Bessa Século XXI.
The Nationalists have won just once in the last five match-days in the Primeira Liga. They have not delivered any credible defensive performance in the past several weeks, and especially on the road, they have been struggling for quite some time.
They might be placed ninth in the table at present, but it needs to be understood that they have a lead of just four points over the relegation cut-off.
Meanwhile, the Panthers are placed in the relegation zone, and have won just twice all through this campaign. Also, only the 17th placed Famalicao have conceded more goals than them this league season.
Furthermore, h2h clashes over the years have also witnessed goals in high frequency.
Likely, expect these two struggling teams to deliver a high-scoring thriller this Tuesday at the Estádio do Bessa Século XXI.

Boavista vs Nacional Prediction
The Panthers were winless in 22 of their previous 25 overall games, and they had conceded two or more goals in three of the past four overall fixtures. At home, they had won just once since June of 2020, and had let in nine goals from the former four appearances alone.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in ten of their former thirteen overall fixtures, and they have kept clean sheets in just two of their past fourteen match-ups.
Finally, they have won just once on the road since January of 2020.
Taking these stats into account, expect a high-scoring meeting between these two dismal defenses.
