Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio Municipal de Chaves will host Saturday’s football game between Chaves and Boavista. The rock-bottom side aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Moreirense and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Black and Whites. Habib Sylla faces race against clock to bet fit for the match, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
As Panteras, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Estoril, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run. Both Awaziem and Onyemaechi are back from the international duty, while goalkeeper Cesar remains on the sidelines with an ACL injury. Pedro Malheiro limped off with injury in the last league match, with Luis dos Santos likely to replace him in the starting XI. Anyhow, home win should be considered as the relegation-threatened hosts want this win more than the visitors.
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.
