Porto vs Boavista Match Preview
A game that will affect both the top and bottom of the table in Portugal on Friday night. Porto are in a right tussle with Benfica for the league title and going into the games this weekend, they cannot be split on points. Goal difference is keeping Benfica at the top of the table, and with a big lead in that, Porto would love a big win here to pile the pressure on a little more when Benfica play later.
Boavista are four points clear of the relegation zone and not in any real danger at the moment, although that could all change quickly of course. Even they won’t fancy taking anything from this game, and this is all about keeping things tight and hoping that something goes wrong for Porto that they can take advantage of.
There is no value on the 90 minute line in this one, but where we do thin there is value is on the handicap line. Boavista held Porto when they met in December and lost just 1-0, in their recent games they have also held the impressive Sporting Lisbon to just one goal too. Porto come here on the back of three wins, but two of those came by a single goal, and it is for that reason that we are backing Boavista on the +2 handicap line here. We don’t fancy their chances, but we do fancy them to keep it tight. Boavista +2 is available at 17/10 with Paddy Power.
Elsewhere, along the same lines we think backing under the goal line is something else worth doing in this one. We are hoping to see Boavista put 10 men behind the ball and frustrate Porto for as long as possible. We are also backing under 2.5 goals here, priced up at 7/5 with Paddy Power.
