Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Gil Vicente play host to Vizela at their Estadio Cidade de Barcelos on day 5 of the new Primeira Liga campaign. Gil Vicente aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Benfica (0-2) and Santa Clara (0-1), with the team eyeing their third win of the process. Since under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous three league fixtures, a low-scoring affair is on the cards in Barcelos. Captain Ruben Fernandes is banned for the hosts.
Vizela, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Boavista before the international break. The newcomers have been struggling on the travels on their return to the Portuguese top flight, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Gil Vicente’s party at Estadio Cidade de Barcelos. Anyhow, as previously mentioned, we are unlikely to see goals galore in Barcelos.
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.
