Boavista vs FC Porto
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Estádio do Bessa Século XXI.
The Dragons are the reigning champions of the competition, and they easily have been the best team in the league for the past several years. In fact, if not for Benfica, the Primeira Liga would have been considered a one-horse race for the past several years.
They have started their title-defense with a statement-making win against Braga (the third-best team in the competition). However, Benfica have started strong as well, and Sergio Conceicao’s men have no option but to keep their momentum going.
They do have the confidence of taking on a mid-table this weekend in the Panthers. Not only do the Dragons have a great h2h record against this opponent, but Vasco Seabra’s men have been struggling for quite some time as well.
By all means, expect a Porto win this weekend.
Boavista vs Porto: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The title-holders are on a 12-match winning run against this opponent.
- Impressively, they have conceded a single goal from these 12 fixtures combined.
- At this stadium, the guests are on a seven-match winning run.

Boavista vs Porto: Prediction
The Panthers were winless in 13 of their previous 15 overall games, and remained so in 14 of their past 20 appearances at this stadium.
On the other hand, their opposite number had won eight of their last nine overall fixtures, and had scored a total of 27 goals from these nine match-ups.
And most importantly, the Dragons have been the absolute best team in Portugal for the past several years, and they also have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival. To quote a stat, they are on a 12-match winning run in h2h meetings.
As such, expect a Porto win this Saturday.
