Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Gil Vicente and Casa Pia face each other at Estadio Cidade de Barcelos in the opening match of Saturday’s program. Os Galos have been struggling to find their best form in the season finale, with the team losing four of their last five league matches. Gil Vicente, though, outplayed Boavista 3-1 in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Casa Pia. Pedro Tiba is back from suspension, while Stanislav Kritsyuk remains on the sidelines with a muscle problem.
The visitors, on the other hand, failed to win the previous eight league fixtures. Anyhow, the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Leo Natel is definitely out of contention with a long-term injury, while Romario Baro is a major doubt.
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.
