Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Boavista and Arouca go head to head at Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI in the Primeira Liga round 29. The Black and Whites quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to their local rivals Porto, with the team beating Famalicao at the weekend. Boavista aim to move one step closer to securing the survival, and they are surely capable of matching Arouca in front of home fans. Forward Gustavo Sauer is banned for the match, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Armando Evangelista’s troops, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Gil Vicente, but given their anything but good away record in the Portuguese top flight, home win should be considered. David Simao misses out through suspension, while fellow midfielder Kouassi Eboue remains in the recovery room. Defender Manuel Velazquez is yet another absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Yusupha Njie):
Born in Banjul, Gambia, on January 3, 1994, Yusupha Njie is a forward who plays for Boavista in Primeira Liga. Njie began his youth career at Wealers FC, and in 2004 he moved to Cherno Samba Academy to continue his football development.
The Gambia international played for the likes of Real de Banjul and FUS Rabat at the senior level before signing a loan deal with Boavista in the 2017/2018 season. He later joined the Primeira Liga club permanently. In July 2018, Yusupha Njie reportedly signed a contract with French Club Stade de Reims, but the deal was canceled due to failed medical.
The Gambian footballer made his Boavista debut in Primeira Liga on August 7, 2017, in a 2-1 loss to Portimonense. Speaking of his international career, Yusupha Njie made his Gambia debut on June 11, 2017, in a 1-0 loss to Benin in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. His primary position is centre-forward, but he is used as a right winger and a second striker as well.
