Ferreira are mediocre side in Portugal Primeira league and stands at 14th position after 14 games with 13 points earned, in 15th round are welcoming Boavista and despite are slight favorites by the bookies i really don't expect that can win this duel. Hosts celebrated only three times in this season and simple weren't good enough, in last four games they took only one point and how i see things draw is maximum what they can take out of this. Five days ago they faced with Belenenses and although scored first goal were outplayed later and may consider them lucky, opponents scored only one goal and missed a lot of chances.
Hosts had difficult schedule and faced with Sporting, Braga and Chaves, in those games it was hard to expect that can earn points, so far Ferreira conceded 27 goals while scored only 15, however guests neither were great in offense and they have a chance to save their own net tonight. In last meeting with Boavista they got a draw and we haven't seen goals there, i doubt that this time will be much different, two not so great teams are facing each other and i simple don't believe that we'll see some large number of goals. As for absent players, defenders Rui Correia (4/0), Quinones (3/0) and forward Welthon (14/4) are injured and forward Luis Phellype (8/2) is suspended.
Boavista were at 9th position after 34 rounds in last season, now are at same position and i just doubt that will manage to climb up, they aren't some great side and can be satisfied with their effort, out of 14 games took 17 points, scored 14 goals and conceded 17, in previous round faced with one of main candidates for the title in Portugal Sporting and were defeated at home with two goals difference at home, earlier they got a draw against Chaves on the road and now must try to collect all three points but that will be a difficult mission.
Guests aren't among teams which can fight for upper part of the table, for that they must show some really huge improving, now must try to at least avoid defeat and judging by form of hosts they have a chance for that. Boavista weren't great in matches on the road and so far celebrated only once, that was in October against bottom placed Estoril, here i doubt that we'll see much of goals. Defender Sparagna (11/0) will stay out due to a suspension, defenders Edu Machado (5/0), Tiago Mesquita (4/0), midfielder Gilson Costa (2/0), forwards Bulos (6/0), Renato Santos (11/2) and Nije (6/0) will all miss this duel.
This is duel of two not so strong teams, both sides were really poor in attack and last what we should expect here is an open game, judging by recent form of two teams under 2 goals seems like a logical choice.
