Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio Cidade de Barcelos will host Saturday’s football game between Gil Vicente and Portimonense, who face each other in the season opener. Os Galos defeated Pacos Ferreira in their last test match and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. It has to be noted that the club chiefs have signed permanent deals Jesus Castillo, Roko Baturina, Maxime Dominguez, Ze Carlos, Thomas Luciano, and Kiko Vilas Boas in the summer transfer window.
O Portimao, on the other hand, were beaten by Farense in their last warm-up game and seeing that Gil Vicente are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Portimao empty-handed. In their last meeting in the Portuguese top flight Portimonense defeated Gil Vicente, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. A man to watch in the away team will be Korea winger Yong-hak Kim.
