Portimonense will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 0-1 Primeira Liga success over Marítimo.
In that match, Portimonense managed 52% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Portimonense was Ewerton Pereira (81'). At the other end, Marítimo had 11 shots on goal with 6 of them on target.
A recurring characteristic of recent Portimonense games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
From their previous 6 clashes before this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on BTTS would have been a losing one.
In the game prior to this, Boavista drew 2-2 in the Primeira Liga match with Tondela.
In that match, Boavista had 57% possession and 14 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. For Boavista, the goals were scored by Kenji Gorré (51') and Yusupha Njie (87'). At the other end, Tondela had 11 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. Modibo Sagnan (40') and João Pedro (77') scored for Tondela.
Looking at their form, and Boavista have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. In defence, Boavista certainly have room for improvement. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.

Team News: Portimonense
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Portimonense gaffer Paulo Sérgio to contend with due to a largely intact set of players. Carlinhos (Unknown Injury) won’t play.
We are thinking that Portimonense look set to kick off with a 4-2-3-1 formation for this one, beginning the first half with Samuel, Fahd Moufi, Willyan, Filipe Relvas, Moustapha Seck, Henrique Jocu, Pedro Sa, Welinton Junior, Paulo Estrela, Anderson Oliveira and Yago Cariello.
Team News: Boavista
Owing to a completely injury-free squad to choose from, the Boavista manager Armando Petit has zero fitness worries to speak of coming into this game.
There’s a good chance that As Panteras will likely begin the game with a 3-4-3 system, settling for Rafael Bracalli, Reggie Cannon, Rodrigo Abascal, Filipe Ferreira, Pedro Malheiro, Gaius Makouta, Sebastian Perez, Yanis Hamache, Luis Santos, Yusupha Njie and Kenji Gorre.
Our feeling is that Boavista have the capability to break down this Portimonense team, although that might not quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 winning score for Portimonense at full-time. There looks to be little in this one.
