Tip Reasoning

Boavista’s pre-season form might not provide any inspiration heading into the new Primeira Liga campaign but Sunday’s hosts kept a lot of clean sheets at home last season and they will be looking to continue that trend this time around. Aves have looked solid at the back but there are still question marks over their ability to score goals and Sunday’s match will provide a big test for their frontline.

All of the available stats suggest that we are highly unlikely to see both teams score in Sunday’s match and that Boavista are best placed to claim all three points. Both teams have scored in just one of their last six meetings between these two clubs and Boavista have never lost at home to Aves, picking up four wins and one draw.

Boavista lacked goals in pre-season but still showed their defensive strength as they kept two clean sheets in their last three home games, while Aves’ woes on the road continued and they have now lost their last six away games. Both teams were knocked out of the Taca da Liga last week but Boavista return to the familiar surroundings of the Estádio do Bessa Século XXI and will be confident of getting off to a winning start in the league.

The majority of both club’s recent matches add more weight to our prediction for Sunday’s game, as none of Boavista’s and just two of Aves’ last six matches have seen both teams score, and that coupled with their recent encounters against one another points towards just one team, at most, scoring when the pair lock horns this weekend.

We’re confident that we won’t see both teams score on Sunday and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0 to Boavista. The hosts haven’t won many games of late and it’s Aves that lead the form guide but last seasons’ strong defensive record at home continued in pre-season for Boavista and we believe that will continue this weekend and lead to three points for the home side.
