Boavista vs FC Porto Odds
Boavista Team News
Boavista enters this match after a narrow 1-0 defeat away to Gil Vicente in the last round of the Portuguese championship. Jorge Couto’s team has further confirmed that they are in a serious crisis this season, considering that they last triumphed in the league back in mid-September in the 5th round when they convincingly defeated Chaves 4-1 in front of their fans.
With 16 points from 15 played matches, Boavista is currently in 13th place on the table, just four points away from the relegation zone. Given that Boavista has lost seven of the previous eight matches in all competitions, we can say that the match against Porto comes at an inconvenient time for them, especially considering that the guests have won 17 of the last 18 head-to-head encounters.
FC Porto Team News
On the other hand, after 15 rounds played, Porto holds the third position in the domestic championship with 34 points, which is three points less than the leading Sporting and two points less than the second-placed Benfica.
Sergio Conceicao’s team managed to return to a winning rhythm shortly after the derby defeat against Sporting (2-0) by defeating Leixoes 2-1 in the League Cup, and then securing a home victory against Chaves (1-0) in the last round with a goal from Joao Mario in the 58th minute.
Porto’s good performance this season is also evident on the European stage, where they comfortably advanced to the knockout phase of the Champions League as the second-placed team in Group H. They will face Arsenal in the Round of 16 of this competition.
