Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Gil Vicente will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Maritimo when they take on Arouca in the Primeira Liga round 11. Os Galos did well to put an end to their seven-game winless run at the weekend, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Gil Vicente aim to keep on climbing the standings, and they are surely capable of beating Arouca, who are not regarded as good travelers. Pedrinho returns from suspension, meaning that head coach Ricardo Soares can count on key players for Friday’s clash.
The newcomers, on the other hand, did well to beat Tondela 2-0 at home on Matchday 10, but given their anything but good away record in the 2021/2022 season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. Midfielder Pite is sidelined through suspension for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Lourency):
Lourency is a product of Brazilian football team Lideral Futebol Club who plays for Gil Vicente. Born on January 2, 1996, in Imperatriz, Brazil, Lourency started his senior career at Chapecoense. After spending two seasons on loan at Vila Nova and Brasil de Pelotas, he joined Primeira Liga side, Gil Vicente.
Lourency scored on his debut in the Portuguese top flight on August 20, 2019, in a 2-1 win over Porto. His most significant success came in 2016 when he won the Copa Sudamericana trophy with Chapecoense, beating Atletico Nacional in the title game. Lourency’s primary position is right winger, but he is used as both left winger and second striker.
Despite being part of the team that won the Copa Sudamericana title, the Gil Vicente footballer has yet to earn a call-up for the Brazil national team. His preferred foot is right, and he has a contract with Gil Vicente until June 30, 2020.
