FC Porto vs Boavista
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Tuesday, 23 June 2020
Kick-off at 21:15 UK/22:15 CET
Venue: Estadio do Dragao (Porto).
FC Porto is in a tight race with Benfica for the title this season. Boavista is on a wonderful run lately, but it will take more than that to impede the host’s run in the campaign.
FC Porto vs Boavista Match preview
Porto has lost only one of their last five matches, following a goalless on the road against Aves last time out in the league. Their form in the campaign post lockdown hasn’t been excellent, but they are slowly getting into the path.
They are at the same points with Benfica, the reigning champions and the table-toppers, in the league table and another three points would take them to the top spot for a brief time.
Their home ground advantage will be a key factor in their win.
At home, the Dragons have lost only one of their 13 matches so far. They are unbeaten at home in the recent five fixtures and have conceded only six goals until now.
Boavista is on a two-game winning streak in the campaign. Their previous encounter gave a 3-1 win at home against Setubal in the last encounter. Despite a winning run, the visitor will lack the advantage of ground in the match.
Having won only 5 of their 13 away fixtures in the league until now, the odds will not favor the Panthers in the clash, let alone have the probability of them even scoring a goal.

FC Porto vs Boavista Prediction
FC Porto is close to taking the lead in the race for the title this season. It is highly unlikely that the host will let go of that opportunity, especially when playing at home.
The host has lost none of their previous eight meetings with Boavista at home. Besides, they have kept a strong fortress at home and is unlikely for the visitors to break it with their current form on the road.
The home win in full-time is at low odds in the clash and hence, the tip for FC Porto to win with -1 handicap at 1.80 odds will be a suitable option for the punters.
The Dragons have averaged 2.0 goals per match at home and we can probably expect a scoreline of 2-0 by the time the fat lady sings. The tip for under 3.5 goals with 1.44 odds will be the best bet for the punters.
