Moreirense vs. Boavista Preview: Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Moreirense is aiming for a third consecutive win in the Primeira Liga as they face off against Boavista at home this Friday evening.

Match Preview

After an impressive start to the 2023-24 campaign, Moreirense finds themselves in the top half of the table, building on their victory in the Portuguese second tier last season with a 10-point lead.

Despite some early losses against strong teams like FC Porto, Braga, and Sporting Lisbon, Moreirense has displayed strength against opponents of similar caliber.

Rui Borges’s team has already secured 10 points from the first seven games, boasting two recent wins that fuel their confidence.

In their latest match, Moreirense showcased an exceptional performance, defeating Rio Ave 4-0, with Joao Camacho scoring a brace, and Fabiano Silva and Madson also finding the net.

However, the upcoming match against Boavista, a team currently holding fourth place, promises to be a much tougher challenge.

Boavista has impressed in the attacking front, securing 17 goals, the second-highest in the league, and sitting just five points off the top.

Their only defeat so far was against Braga, and they’ve proven their mettle against weaker opponents, triumphing over Portimonense, Estoril, and Chaves.

Notably, they started the season by defeating 2022-23 Primeira Liga winners Benfica 3-2, showcasing resilience by coming from behind.

Despite a recent draw against Famalicao, Boavista remains a formidable opponent with a solid record against Moreirense, having won the last three encounters, conceding only one goal.
