    Pacos de Ferreira to dent Boavista’s survival hopes in Primeira Liga

    On Friday evening, Boavista host Pacos de Ferreira at the Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI, as the home side look to win vital points in the fight for survival in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.

    Boavista have endured a difficult campaign in the Portuguese top-flight so far, as they currently sit 15th place in the table, just a point above the relegation zone.

    A recent inconsistent run of league form has not helped their chances of moving away from the drop zone. Jesualdo Ferreira’s team has won just one of their last four games in the Primeira Liga. However, they have taken four points from their last two league matches.

    One of the most unconvincing aspects of the home side’s campaign so far this season has been their home form, as they have won just two of their last ten league matches on home soil.

    While Boavista worries about survival, Pacos de Ferreira look set to seal a place in next season’s Europa League play-offs.

    The visitors are nine points clear of sixth-place Vitoria Guimaraes and ten points adrift of fourth-place Sporting Braga, who are still looking to book their place in the Champions League for next season.

    A poor recent run of form in the Primeira Liga has ruled out a higher finish in the table, as Pepa’s team have lost three of their last four matches in the Portuguese top-flight.

    However, that run is understandable considering that they have faced both Porto and Benfica. The visitors failed to score in all three of those defeats.

    Pacos de Ferreira have a poor recent away record in the Portuguese top-flight, as they have suffered four straight away defeats, having failed to score in any of the games.

    Forebet predicts that Pacos de Ferreira will end their recent woeful away recent by recording a victory in a low-scoring encounter.
