Reason For Benfica vs Boavista Predictions

  • Boavista have won three and drawn one of their last six league games.
  • Benfica have dropped points in five of their last six matches.
  • Both teams have scored in just 29% of the hosts’ home games and the visitors’ away games.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 86% of Boavista’s away trips.

Benfica have looked below par since returning to action in June

Benfica lost their second straight game on Monday night, going down 2-0 away at Maritimo, while Boavista won their third game in four matches at home to Santa Clara on Sunday 1-0. Saturday’s hosts have really struggled for consistency since the return of the Primeira Liga in June and that has allowed arch-rivals Porto to move 6pts clear at the top of the table.

The last time these two sides met Benfica ran out 4-1 winners at the Estádio do Bessa Século XXI in Porto, but that was back in December and this current Benfica side are unlikely to have things all their own way on Saturday. Boavista head into the game as the form favourites with three wins, one draw and two defeats from their last six outings.

Boavista have only lost two of their last six away games

Our prediction for a double chance bet on Boavista this weekend is based largely around the form of both clubs over their last six matches. Boavista have lost their last four games against Benfica and will still head into this game as the underdogs due to the 26pt gap between the two clubs in the Primeira Liga table.

However, Boavista have won three, drawn one and have only lost two of their last six league games, while Benfica have only secured one win during that same period of matches and look a shadow of their former selves at this moment in time. The hosts have drawn against the likes of Vitoria Setubal, Tondela and Portimonense recently and even lost against Santa Clara and Maritimo, all teams the Portuguese giants should have beaten with relative ease. Boavista have only lost two of their last four away games and will fancy their chances of leaving Lisbon with at least a point to show for their efforts.

A tight and tense 90-minutes could be on the cards this weekend

In terms of a final scoreline, we’re predicting that a 0-0 draw is the most likely result to match our double chance tip as only 29% of Benfica’s home games and Boavista’s away trips this season have seen both teams score. Under 2.5 goals has been a common theme for Boavista’s away games with a whopping 86% producing fewer than three goals. The hosts have kept clean sheets in 57% of their home games and Boavista have stopped their opponents from scoring in 36% of their away matches, which is why we have backed a 0-0 draw on Saturday.
