Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
After dropping five points in total in the previous two league matches, Porto will be looking to return to winning ways in the Primeira Liga when they host Gil Vicente at their Estadio Do Dragao. The Dragons are determined to defend their trophy, but seeing that they are already five points behind league leaders Benfica, this has to go down as somewhat of a must-win game for the hosts.
Porto dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with ten-man Sporting at the weekend, but they are definitely capable of beating Gil Vicente at home. The visitors, on the other hand, are undefeated in the 2020/21 season, but Porto are likely to pose a much bigger threat for Rui Miguel’s men than their previous rivals. In their last meeting at Estadio Do Dragao Porto defeated Gil Vicente 2-1, and given the importance of the match for the reigning champions, the history is likely to repeat itself.
