Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Portimonense and Boavista go head to head at Estadio Municipal de Portimao in what is expected to be a close match. Portimonense continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team beating both Farense and Belenenses in the previous two home games. Paulo Sergio’s troops are eager to escape the danger zone, and they are surely capable of beating the rock-bottom side on home soil.
As Panteras, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back losses to the likes of Tondela and Sporting. Boavista are not regarded as good travellers, and given their form in 2021, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting at Estadio Municipal de Portimao Portimonense defeated Boavista 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Portimonense boss Paulo Sergio will watch the game from the stands as he was sent off in the last league match.
