Boavista vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction

Boavista picked up what was their first win since late November with a narrow 1-0 victory over Aves on the road last week. The hosts have just not looked convincing in their campaign this season, and have admitted defeat in four of their past six fixtures in the Primeira Liga.

At the moment, the home team are sitting tenth in a cluster of eighteen, three points adrift of seventh-placed Vitoria Guimaraes.

Meanwhile, the visitors were stunned by Rio Ave in their most recent clash at home after, the latter posted a 2-1 scoreline at the end of the ninety minutes. Despite being the favorites to come away with all three points, the guests struggled to find an equalizer, let alone a winner, in that latter matchup.

Be that as it may, Vitoria Guimaraes have stumbled just twice in their last seven clashes in the top flight. It is also worth mentioning that the visiting cavalry are currently unbeaten in their past four outings too.

In sharp contrast, Boavista have been at the losing end in three of their previous clashes at home. With home advantage hardly making a difference for the hosts as of late, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Vitoria Guimaraes in this one.

Furthermore, the hosts have treated their faithful to very few goals this season, especially at home. Miserably, they have failed to get their names on the scoresheet in half of their past six fixtures, and have also found the back of the net just eight times here so far.

On the other hand, Vitoria Guimaraes have not scored more than two goals in any of their outings. Taking into account that their previous three h2h meetings here have also been low scoring affairs, count on the visitors to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most on the final scorecards.
