Player to watch: Robert Bozenik

Boavista are not particularly enjoying their best campaign, as they are in danger of being relegated with one game left to play. However, Robert Bozenik has been one of the few bright spots on the team this season.

The Slovakian player has nine goals and two assists in the Primeira Liga, and he leads the team in both aspects. He'll be called upon to help salvage their campaign, considering he scored in the reverse fixture of this clash.
