Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Gil Vicente will be looking to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Belenenses when they host Farense at their Estadio Cidade de Barcelos. Gil Vicente are only three points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that Saturday’s clash is of big importance for the home team. Nogueira remains on the sidelines through suspension, while both Talocha and Leautey are pushing for the start.
Farense, on the other hand, did well to beat Ferreira at the weekend, with the team putting an end to their three-game losing run. Farense aim to escape the relegation zone, and seeing that they will go for a win in Saturday’s game as well, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. Lica, who suffered an injury in the triumph over Ferreira, is unlikely to feature against Ferreira.
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.
Highlighted Team (Farense):
Established on April 1, 1910, S.C. Farense is a Portuguese club that plays in Primeira Liga. Farense returned to Primeira liga in 2020, with the team securing promotion to the Portuguese elite division following an 18-year absence.
The Leoes de Faro (Lions of Faro) play home games at Estadio da Sao Luis, the stadium with the capacity of 12,000 people. Fellow Algavre clubs Olhanense and Portimonense are regarded as Farense’s biggest rivals. Speaking of the club’s colours, Farense footballers wear black and white shirts when playing at home, while their away kit is mainly green.
In the 2995/96 season Farense represented Portugal in the UEFA Cup, with the team suffering a loss to Olympique Lyon in the first round of the competition. The 1994/95 season is considered the club’s most successful campaign in the Portuguese top flight as they finished the process in 5th position in the standings.
