Key Stats

  • Vitoria Guimaraes sit eight places and 27 points ahead of Boavista in the Primeira Liga table and have won two of their last four league games, while Boavista are without a win in their last five having lost three and drawn two.
  • The home side have only scored more than one goal in one of their last six matches and Boavista have failed to score in two of their last four fixtures, so we have gone with a 1-0 win for Vitoria Guimaraes this weekend.
  • Three of Vitoria's and four of Boavista's last six outings have produced under 2.5 goals, while four of the pair's last six meetings in league and cup have also witnessed fewer than three goals.

Player to watch – Tiago Silva

There are three Silva's in the Vitoria Guimaraes side and all have performed really well this season but we have our eye on midfielder Tiago Silva this weekend.

Silva has scored five league goals this season, four of which have come from the penalty spot, and he has also provided the joint-highest amount of assists (five) alongside namesake Jota Silva.

Tiago Silva only needs one more goal to make this his best goals return since joining Vitoria in 2021, but will that goal arrive this weekend in what is expected to be a close game against Boavista?
