Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Tondela v Boavista game (plus the best game odds).
Tondela will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 2-0 Primeira Liga losing effort in their last game against Benfica.
In that match, Tondela had 34% possession and 3 shots on goal with 2 on target. Benfica got 21 shots at goal with 5 on target. Haris Seferović (54') and Luca Waldschmidt (94') scored for Benfica.
Tondela have really been misfiring in recent times. Their sum of goals equals just 4 versus opposition teams over their last six fixtures. In those meetings, Auriverdes have also seen the number of goals against them total 10. Even so, it remains to be seen whether the trend shall be replicated in this match.
Their prior results show that Tondela:
- are unbeaten in the league by Boavista in their previous 3 matches.
- haven't beaten Boavista in their previous 2 league games.
- are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches at home.
In their previous fixture, Boavista drew 1-1 in the Primeira Liga match with Santa Clara.
In that match, Boavista managed 59% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for Boavista was Nuno Santos (20'). On the other side, Santa Clara got 6 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Carlos Júnior (37') was the scorer for Santa Clara.
In 5 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Boavista, a relatively low number of goals have gone in between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game during that spell is a mere 1.5, with the number of goals averaged by As Panteras standing at 0.5.
Leading up to this clash, Boavista:
- have left without a victory over Tondela when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches away from home.
- have not won away from home in their last 11 matches in the league. It's not a good run at all.
