Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Gil Vicente play host to Vizela at their Estadio Cidade de Barcelos in the Primeira Liga round 21. Os Galos have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Pacos Ferreira, sharing the spoils with Arouca while beating Famalico in their last league match. Gil Vicente aim to give fans yet another reason to celebrate, but Friday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Both Alipour and Kritsyuk limped off with injuries at the weekend, with Boselli and da Silva Ventura likely to step up.
The visitors, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle with 25 points in their pockets. Since Vizela are on a three-game losing run on the road, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Os Galos. Raphael Guzzo, who suffered an injury in a goalless draw with Chaves, is rated doubtful for the visiting side.
