Chaves vs Boavista
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 17th February 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Chaves (Chaves).
All credit to Flavienses that they really did start trying to do something about their lackluster league performance, since January. In the eight match-days that followed, only twice have they lost, and it came against Braga and Porto, two teams in intense competition for the title.
They are hosting the Panthers this coming match-day. The battle should be exhilarating, considering that the opponents are desperate to avoid the looming relegation that has been shadowing them for quite some time.
Both have had problems with their defense this season. And particularly Lito Vidigal’s men will be low in confidence they have had to endure back-to-back road matches against Benfica and Braga.
Chaves vs Boavista Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last two games and seven of the last ten matches had goals at either end of the pitch.
- The last three wins in a row were posted by Tiago Fernandes’s men.
- At the Estadio Municipal de Chaves, the visitors are winless.
- Four of the last seven overall ties had three or more goals.
- The last two fixtures alone returned nine goals in total.
Chaves vs Boavista Prediction
Apart from the home advantage going their way, Valentes Trasmontanos also hold the proud honor of staying unbeaten all through their h2h meetings at the Estadio Municipal de Chaves. They are also going through a period of resurgence from the first week of this year, losing just twice, and that too against probable podium-finishers of the Primeira Liga in 2018-19. Moreover, the Chequered Ones were winless in 19 of their last 23 matches away from home and lost the last three in a row.
I expect the hosts to emerge victorious from this tie.
Seven of the total ten h2h ties ended with both teams on the scoresheet, and the Panthers scored in their last three match-ups in a row. Coupled to that, Flavienses conceded in nine of their last eleven home-ties. There’s a very high chance that we will see goals from both teams, based on these observations.
