Boavista vs Desportivo das Aves for the Portuguese Primeira Liga championship match on Sunday at Bessa Stadium.
Boavista’s team enters this first round of the Portuguese Premier League championship, having set their objectives a little higher compared to the previous season, for future years, at least in my view, with the northern team seeking to cement, more than never, his position in the NOS League.
Trying to move from being just a team fighting for maintenance at the top level after their promotion a few years ago, to being a team that shows the ability to fight for access to European events, something that would be an unprecedented feat and clear proof of the evolution of the chess team.
Relying on Lito Vidigal at the helm, this is likely to happen, as the coach has done this with Arouca team relatively recently.
Desportivo das Aves
As for the Desportivo das Aves team, it arrives at this inaugural competition day trying to keep track of the last seasons as a team that plays in the 1st division of national football, proposing, I believe, to reach the permanence in a 1st phase and then trying obtaining the maximum score possible.
The permanence of Augusto Inácio in the technical command should also be the guarantor of some stability for a team that presents with a squad with enough solutions and quality for their new objectives.
Given what tends to be the form of play by the two teams, not always concerned with playing good football, but trying above all to add as many points as possible and to be effective, and they are direct rivals in the fight for maintenance in the NOS League.
This is also only the first round, I expect nothing less than a boring game, little offensive and with few goals scored, which should have little interest in this match for the spectators.
