Boavista were defeated by Maritimo the last match-day. The former were on the road, and succumbed to a narrow 1-0 scoreline.

In the meantime, Portimonense were held to a 1-1 draw by Rio Ave in their latest league fixture.

In regards to the result this Saturday, Boavista hold the slight upper hand. They have the home advantage, and as can be seen, they have delivered their best performances at home, while Portimonense have struggled hard on the road.

In fact, Boavista have lost just twice this whole season in front of the home crowd, and the losses had come against Benfica, and Porto – two of which are the best teams in Portugal.

Moreover, in their last 15 overall games, Boavista had lost just four times, and keep note that they have displayed good defensive prowess over the course of the season. In fact, only three teams in total have conceded more goals than the team.

On the other hand, Portimonense have just a total of two wins on the road this whole season. One of these was against the newly promoted Gil Vicente.

Considering these observations, it’s deduced that Boavista should do their best on the pitch to secure the win.

However, do also note that at present, Boavista have been further deep in troubles. They have lost four of their last five overall match-ups, and in fact have mere four wins this whole season. At home, they have lost their latest two appearances, and recorded a combined scoreline of 1-5 in the process.

Going on, Portimonense will be desperate as well to make something out of this game after their long series of unimpressive performances. On top of that, they have also managed to score at least a goal in eight of their prior ten overall matches.

Considering these new findings, it’s adjudged that the struggling Boavista might find it hard to keep a clean sheet this weekend.
