Vitoria Guimaraes vs Boavista
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 16th March 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Estádio D. Afonso Henriques (Guimarães).
Both these teams are extremely stingy as far as goals are concerned. And rightfully, both take the 16th and 17th spots in terms of average goals per game, in a league of 18. In home ties, no team has conceded fewer goals than Guimaraes, while Boavista remains one of the very few teams that are yet to score ten goals on the road.
This peculiar nature of the teams extends to their h2h ties as well. Most of their games, especially recent ones have been underwhelming in terms of goals scored, and it’s a rare sight to see both teams on the scorecard.
Guimaraes is considerably better of the two, as the league standings confirm, and with their home advantage, holds the upper hand in this tie.

Vitoria Guimaraes vs Boavista Prediction
Guimaraes is the better of the two and has the home advantage. Even then, there’s a more obvious choice to opt as our top pick.
Goals have been extremely scarce whenever these teams have taken on each other. The last five games between the teams failed to have both teams on the scorecard. The last league encounter involving these sides ended in a goalless draw, and the last four meetings together returned a total of just three goals.
Even better, Guimaraes scored a total of just seven goals in their last 12 matches, and a total of just three in their last five home ties. Boavista, on the other hand, recorded seven in their last ten ties, and three in their last six on the road. And importantly, at this venue, the visitors for this tie managed just four goals in their last ten attempts.
And finally, seven of the last eight h2h fixtures at this stadium failed to have three or more goals.
As these observations so overwhelmingly suggest, the best picks are surely both teams not to score, and under 2.5 match goals.
