BOAVISTA V ESTORIL
Boavista will be looking for an improved result here after the 3-1 Primeira Liga loss in their previous game against Benfica.
In that game, Boavista managed 30% possession and 10 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. The scorer for Boavista was Gustavo Sauer (32'). At the other end, Benfica had 8 shots at goal with 6 on target. Darwin Núñez (14', 61') and Julian Weigl (34') scored for Benfica.
João Pedro Sousa's Boavista have found the net 8 times in their prior half-dozen outings. The corresponding tally of goals that have been scored against them in those fixtures is 8.
After tasting defeat last time out to Sporting Lisbon in Primeira Liga action, Estoril and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that game, Estoril had 45% possession and 7 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. At the other end, Sporting CP had 11 shots on goal with 4 on target. Pedro Porro (67') was the scorer for Sporting Lisbon.
A succession of hard-working displays from the Estoril defenders has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their last 6 outings overall. During the same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 9. However, it remains to be seen if such a trend might be replicated in this upcoming match or not.
Prediction: Both teams to score
AL GHARAFA V UMM SALAL
Al-Gharafa won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 3-1 Stars League defeat last time out to Al-Duhail.
Al-Gharafa have managed to score a sum total of 9 times over their past six outings. The tally of goals that they have conceded in that same time is 8.
In their last game, Umm Salal drew 1-1 in the Stars League match with Al-Ahli.
In their previous six clashes, Umm Salal have bagged a tally of 9 goals. Umm Salal have also managed to score on each one of those occasions. In that time, their defenders have seen 11 goals go into their own net.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
AL RAYYAN V AL KHOR
Al-Rayyan will be looking for an improved result here following the 2-4 Stars League loss in their previous game against Al-Sadd.
Fixtures involving Al-Rayyan have proved to be absorbing affairs of late with high scoring being a common characteristic. Over their past six clashes, a grand total of 21 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 8 of these coming from Al-Rayyan. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Al-Wakrah in Stars League competition, Al-Khor and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The numbers tell their own story, and Al-Khor have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 9 goals in total. Defensively, Al-Khor have been far from perfect.
Prediction: Both teams to score
