Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao and Gil Vicente face each other in a highly-anticipated game at Estadio Municipal de Famalicao. Joao Pedro Sousa’s troops were brilliant in the 2019/20 Primeira Liga season, but they have not been as impressive in the new campaign. Famalicao sit in the 8th position in the standings, and they are on a three-game winless run in the national championship.
Gil Vicente, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Benfica where Ygor Nogueira was sent off on the stroke of half-time. The Brazilian defender misses the Famalicao game through suspension, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home team. In their last meeting in the Portuguese top flight Famalicao defeated Gil Vicente, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
