Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Casa Pia and Boavista take on each other at Estadio Municipal de Rio Maior on day 20 of the 2023/2024 Primeira Liga campaign. Casa Pia aim to put an end to their three-game losing run in the national championship, but they face a difficult task against the Black and Whites. As Pedro Moreira’s troops experienced all sorts of problems at the back in an 8-0 loss to Sporting, we are not tempted to put our money on the home side.
Boavista, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Benfica and Portimonense. As the visitors will go for a triumph in Monday’s encounter as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting in the Portuguese top flight the two sides played out a 1-1 draw. Both Awaziem and Onyemaechi are on international duty, speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Team (Boavista):
Founded on August 1, 1903, Boavista are a Portuguese club that welcome their rivals at Estadio do Bessa. The capacity of the venue is 28,263 and it was built back in 1911. As Panteras (The Panthers) are well known for their black and white shirts and white is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Famous Fellow city club Porto are considered Boavista’s main rivals and the two teams face each other in O Derby da Invicta and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two local rivals. A Panteras did well to win their first and only Primeira Liga trophy in the 2000/2001 season, with the team finishing the campaign only one point clear of Porto.
Boavista have five Taca de Portugal trophies (1974/75, 1975/76, 1978/79, 1991/92, 1996/97), with the team winning Supertaca de Portugal three times (1979, 1992, 1997). Jose Bosingwa, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Nuno Gomes are the notable footballers who played for Boavista in the past, to name just a few.
