Portimonense vs Boavista
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 13 August 2018
Kick-Off at 20:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Portimao (Portimao).
The opening round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga is going to be wrapped up with a clash between Portimonense and Boavista.
The hosts managed to accomplish their main goal of the previous season and remain in the top flight and they didn’t have major troubles of securing their safe mid-table finish.
Antonio Folha’s side has been very efficient, however their bad defending prevented them of snatching even better position at the end.
Portimonense have been pretty good when playing in front of the home fans where they managed to celebrate eight victories in 17 matches. They want to have another successful season and stay out of the trouble.
Boavista were a bit better than their opponents and they finished on 8th place. They were six points away to snatching a place in Europa League, however they couldn’t catch up Rio Ave.
The visitors have been involved in low scoring matches and Robson and the lads were pretty tight in the back although their forwards didn’t score too many goals.
Boavista are well-known as good home-performers while they are poor when playing at away grounds. The visitors managed to get back hoe with a win just twice last season.
Portimonense vs Boavista: Head-to-head
Both sides have been successful in their head to head clashes, however Portimonense celebrated one victory more than their rivals. In their encounters, the crowd is usually able to see two to three goals per match.
Portimonense vs Boavista: Prediction
Interestingly, in head to head clashes of these two sides we haven’t seen a draw yet. Since Portimonense are confident at home pitch, while Boavista are struggling at away grounds, home side should pick up all three points in this one.
The visitors are very hard to crack and although Portimonense have been pretty efficient last season, in this one we shouldn’t be able to see more than two goals. It is very likely that the crowd is coming to spectate a very tight clash.
