Boavista vs Tondela
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 30 March 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK
Venue: Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI (Porto).
Boavista will be hoping to return on the winning ways on Friday evening when they are to host the bottom-half Tondela side in the last game of the day at Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI. Os Axadrezados dell to city rivals Porto 2-0 before the international break and they need a three-pointer here to keep ground on the likes of Rio Ave and Maritimo in the battle for the fifth-place finish.
The visitors, on the other hand, are still on a fair distance to the drop zone being six points adrift of Feirense in 17th at the moment. Nonetheless, the head coach Pepa does not have reason to be proud of his team’s recent displays as Auriverdes look to be struggling for goals. Tondela have failed to find the back of the net in in four of last five matches on the road and such trend will hardly be stopped on Friday given that Boavista have been very tough to break down in their own backyard recently.
As the matter of fact, Os Axadrezados have actually kept four clean sheets in last five home outings in the league, winning every single of these. The man who has scored three goals in last four home matches for Boavista is Yusupha Njie and he will no doubts be the main threat to Tondela’s goal on Friday.
Boavista vs Tondela: Head-to-head
Interestingly, it’s Tondela who lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into their 11th meeting with Boavista.
Auriverdes have clinched a 3-2 victory in a five-goal thriller back in early-November when the two sides have locked horns in this term of Primeira Liga.
Three of last four H2H meetings in the league saw both sides on the scoresheet.
Boavista vs Tondela: Prediction
We have to respect Boavista’s impressive run of five consecutive wins in front of the home crowd and back them to grab the spoils at the 2.00 odds here.
Tondela have been struggling badly with the efficiency in the final third lately, particularly in away fixtures, and we will alternatively take Boavista to keep things quiet at the back at the odds of 2.25.
