Our prediction for this match:
Guimaraes take on Gil Vicente on Saturday in what is expected to be an interesting pre-season friendly. Guimaraes have been impressive in recent warm-up games, with the team beating all Feirense, Sporting B, and Mafra, but they do not want to stop now. England midfielder Marcus Edwards, who found the net in the triumph over Mafra, will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
Gil Vicente, on the other hand, have been impressive in front of goal in preseason, and seeing that both sides will be with guards down in Saturday’s clash, both teams to score betting option should be considered. When the two teams met in the Primeira Liga earlier in 2021 Gil Vicente rolled over Vitoria Guimaraes 4-2, which is yet another reason why there is a big value in betting on BTTS.
