Pacos de Ferreira vs Boavista Prediction
Ferreira were defeated on the road the last match-day by Santa Clara, with a 2-1 scoreline. Throughout the game the hosts had dominated, and the sole goal by Pacos had come due to defensive errors right at the end of the match, rather than by some offensive brilliance.
Boavista meanwhile recorded a 2-0 win at home over Guimaraes. The win was their second in a row, and it also was their second clean sheet consecutively. Slowly, the team is getting back into form.
In regards to result this Friday, consider that Boavista have been a stable presence in the top flight for the past many years, whereas their counterparts have just gained entry here. Also, at present, Ferreira are in risk of being eliminated from this league at the end of the season.
Moreover, Pacos are also on a five-game winless run in overall games, and are on a three-match winless streak at home. On the other hand, their opposite number was unbeaten in seven of their last ten match-ups on the road.
Finally, 12 of the past 18 h2h wins had gone to Boavista, and the last they lost against this opponent was four years back. Taking into account all these observations, we arrive to the conclusion that Boavista are the favorites this Friday, and it’s logical to back them.
