Of the leaders of the main European championships, only Monaco has more goals than the checkered team. The 14 goals scored in the championship place Boavista at the top of the most successful European teams, in what is already the best start ever in terms of goals and points.
Boavista adds and continues. In first place in the championship, equal on points with Sporting and FC Porto, there is the most effective attack in the competition, with 14 goals scored. The leader of goalscorers, Bozenik, who scored five accurate shots, still lives at Bessa.
The 14 goals scored in the championship place the team in the elite of European football. Looking at the leaders of the ten main championships in the UEFA rankings, Boavista is only surpassed by Monaco, who has already scored 15. There is no one else ahead of the Boavista team, and next to them only the almighty Manchester City. Some sharks, such as Bayern Munich (11 goals), Liverpool (12), Arsenal (9), Barcelona (13), Juventus and Milan (both with nine) do not lead their respective championships and have fewer goals scored than the trained team by Petit.
In addition to having a scoring record at the level of Europe’s greats, Boavista also has the best start ever in the fifth round. Bozenik (5), Tiago Morais (3), Pedro Malheiro (2), Salvador Agra (1), Vukotic (1) and Bruno Lourenço (1) scored 13 of the 14 goals, the other belonging to Filipe Relvas, a central defender from Portimonense who scored in his own goal.
Yusupha’s substitute last season, Bozenik is showing his full potential and leads the scoring list, with five goals. Despite the status he had last season, he left good indications and Boavista chose to keep him permanently, paying 850 thousand euros, with Feyenoord retaining 15 percent of the economic rights. The Slovakian international has enchanted the checkered fans, contributing a lot to the panthers’ fierce attack, which averages 2.8 goals per game. A devastating attack that led Boavista to hold the lead in the championship on the fifth round, repeating the record of 1995/96, then under the command of Manuel José, also with 13 points, and the 2001/02 season, with Jaime Pacheco, then with 12 points.
Malheiro and Bozeník in doubt
Boavista’s squad will start preparing for Sunday’s game in Braga today, after enjoying a day off. Pedro Malheiro and Bozenik will be re-evaluated by the team’s medical department, taking into account the injuries they suffered against Chaves. The right-back injured his left thigh and is seriously doubtful for the trip to Minho, while the Slovak striker suffered a blow to the back and ended up being replaced by Jeriel De Santis.
