Boavista have collected 14 points from their Primeira Liga home games so far after 3-5-1.

The spoils were shared in Boavista's previous game, also at home. Visiting Tondela (placed 12th) travelled back with a draw after a 1-1 scoreline. The hometeam coach Gonçalves Teixeira made a successful contribution in the game against Tondela, bringing on Santis who scored the equalizer in the 1-1 draw. Sauer, who usually plays near the opponent's goal, was the highest rated performer for the side in that match, earning a rating of 8.35 (out of 10). Sauer hit eight key passes, dribled past the opponent 2 of 3 times and had 27 successful passes (of 30 total).

Gil Vicente form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Primeira Liga travels is 4 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat. It could be a hat trick of victories away for Vicente, as they have won on their previous two travels.

Vicente go into this game after a win, the home game against Vitoria Guimaraes that ended 3-2. World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager Soares Ribeiro when Leautey scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 66th minute.

Ahead of that match was the victory versus Tondela at their stadium, the result 3-0.

The travelling fans enjoy Gil Vicente's attacking play in away games, having scored 12 goals in 8 league matches away. It's worth mentioning that 6 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Vicente are defending well in their away games, having conceded only 7 times in 8 matches.
