Second-tier side Belenenses will go head to head with Liga NOS regulars Boavista on Friday night. The fall of the home side from the top flight has hurt them significantly as they seem to be struggling in Liga Portugal 2 too. Barring the last two games, out of which one was a Taca de Portugal fixture, Belenenses were on a three-game losing streak. Luckily for the inferior hosts, Boavista comes into this clash with a shambolic recent form of their own. The away side has not won in their last seven games, with five losses surrounding these seven fixtures. If there is anyone who needs this game to make a comeback, it's the visitors for this game. Belenenses and Boavista's Taca da Liga group also contains the likes of Vitoria Guimaraes who could be a difficult opponent further, so grabbing points as soon as possible from this first match week is going to be a necessity.

Belenenses vs Boavista Betting Tips - Under 2.5 goals

Boavista should break their hoodoo here, as far as the past meetings reflect upon this tie. Belenenses have not only failed to beat Boavista in any of the last four meetings, but they also have not scored a single goal in the last 360+ minutes of professional football against this very side too. Considering Boavista come into this game with a 9-game run without a clean sheet, betting on a BTTS in this game could prove to be highly risky. Nevertheless, we expect the visitors to get either a 0-0, 0-1 or 1-1 scoreline in this game on Friday and try to get their just third non-defeat result in the Portuguese footballing landscape. Our final prediction would be under 2.5 goals being scored in this game at the end of ninety minutes.

Belenenses Team News

Belenenses are really struggling in the bottom of Liga Portugal 2 and things aren't looking very good for the yesteryear Liga NOS side. Since their demotion, a couple of years back, Friday's hosts have only fallen to new lows, despite some of their personnel proving to be decent game-changers. One of their star performers this season is striker Kikas, who has scored five goals in ten games played this season. But, it is Alisson Safira who has been more efficient than Kikas in the opposition penalty area as the backup striker has scored three goals in mere 106 minutes of game-play, which is less than two games played. With Safira being the backup striker, he should be undoubtedly in running for playing the entire second half of this game and get a goal or two.

Players to watch: Kikas, Alisson Safira

Boavista Team News

The only commendable thing that Boavista have done in recent times is scoring against Porto in a 4-1 defeat at home. The last seven games have been horrific for this week's away side, and the side's failure to score goals is the main reason for the same. The club's top scorers, Yusupha Njie and Kenji Gorre have just four goals and assists each despite the 13th game-week getting culminated recently. The only player who can vouch for his consistency in the starting eleven is Yanis Hamache. The Boavista midfielder creates 2.5 chances per game which are more than double any other player's tally in this team. Defender Reggie Cannon will be one of our players to watch with his interception rate of 2.2 key passes of the opponents showing a plethora of his defensive abilities this year.

Players to watch: Reggie Cannon, Yanis Hamache, Yusupha Njie
