Vitoria Guimaraes will be hoping to return to winning ways on Wednesday evening when they take on Boavista in the 16th round of Primeira Liga.
Guimaraes ended a two-win streak with a 1-0 defeat at Santa Clara twelve days ago in the previous round of the competition.
Nevertheless, it is worth mentioning that Vitoria Guimaraes showed much better performances at home than on the road throughout the season, especially in the last couple of months.
Pepa’s men have thus won three and drawn one of the last four home fixtures across competitions.
The run includes a 3-3 draw to the likes of Benfica in Portuguese League Cup (group phase).
Pepa’s squad bagged two or more goals in each of the last four games at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques. They notched as many as ten goals in the last three home fixtures in the process.
Vitoria will fancy their chances of getting a result here against Boavista who have been dreadful travelers so far in the season.
Boavista took only two points in seven away matches in this term of Portuguese top flight. They have lost four on the spin away from home across competitions.
Boavista shipped at least two goals in each of the last five outings on the road in all competitions.
They did manage to pick up consecutive wins over Sporting Braga (5-1 in Portuguese Cup) and Moreirense (1-0 in Primeira Liga) in the last two games, but both these results came in their own backyard.
