Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI will host Friday’s football game between Boavista and Gil Vicente, the two relegation-threatened teams. Boavista are eager to escape the relegation zone, and, no doubt, a win over Portimonense gave them a confidence boost. Resinho is sidelined with injury, but there are no suspended players in the home team ahead of the visit of Gil Vicente. The visitors, on the other hand, are on a four-match losing run in all competitions ahead of the trip to Porto.
Gil Vicente failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Braga and Farense in the previous two away games, and given Boavista’s display in the triumph over Portimonense, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. The likes of Aw, Diogo, and Felicio Carvalho are all out of contention through injuries for Friday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Yusupha Njie):
Born in Banjul, Gambia, on January 3, 1994, Yusupha Njie is a forward who plays for Boavista in Primeira Liga. Njie began his youth career at Wealers FC, and in 2004 he moved to Cherno Samba Academy to continue his football development.
The Gambia international played for the likes of Real de Banjul and FUS Rabat at the senior level before signing a loan deal with Boavista in the 2017/2018 season. He later joined the Primeira Liga club permanently. In July 2018, Yusupha Njie reportedly signed a contract with French Club Stade de Reims, but the deal was canceled due to failed medical.
The Gambian footballer made his Boavista debut in Primeira Liga on August 7, 2017, in a 2-1 loss to Portimonense. Speaking of his international career, Yusupha Njie made his Gambia debut on June 11, 2017, in a 1-0 loss to Benin in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. His primary position is centre-forward, but he is used as a right winger and a second striker as well.
Highlighted Team (Gil Vicente):
Founded in 1924, Gil Vicente are a Portuguese football club that compete in Primeira Liga. The Galos (Roosters) are well known for their red kit, but they wear white shirts and blue shorts when playing on the travels.
Gil Vicente have yet to win a domestic trophy, but they did well to make it to the Taca da Liga final in the 2011/2012 season. The Galos suffered a 2-1 loss to Benfica in the title game at Estadio Cidade de Coimbra. The likes of Rodrigo and Saviola scored for Benfica, with Ze Luis finding the net for Gil Vicente.
The Galos welcome their rivals at Estadio Cidade de Barcelos, the stadium which can hold up to 12,504 people. The venue was opened on May 30, 2014 and it can hold up to 12,504 people. It has to be noted that the team first secured promotion to the Portuguese elite division in 1990.
