Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Santa Clara and Gil Vicente take on each other at Estadio de Sao Miguel in what is expected to be a close encounter. Santa Clara are having a season to forget, with the team sitting in the ultimate position with only 16 points on their account. Since the rock-bottom side experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Estoril, home win should not be considered. There are no fresh injuries in the home team ahead of the visit of Gil Vicente.
Os Galos, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the Portuguese top flight. Since Gil Vicente are desperate to return to winning ways as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Ali Alipour and Stanislav Kritsyuk should miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Team (Gil Vicente):
Founded in 1924, Gil Vicente are a Portuguese football club that compete in Primeira Liga. The Galos (Roosters) are well known for their red kit, but they wear white shirts and blue shorts when playing on the travels.
Gil Vicente have yet to win a domestic trophy, but they did well to make it to the Taca da Liga final in the 2011/2012 season. The Galos suffered a 2-1 loss to Benfica in the title game at Estadio Cidade de Coimbra. The likes of Rodrigo and Saviola scored for Benfica, with Ze Luis finding the net for Gil Vicente.
The Galos welcome their rivals at Estadio Cidade de Barcelos, the stadium which can hold up to 12,504 people. The venue was opened on May 30, 2014 and it can hold up to 12,504 people. It has to be noted that the team first secured promotion to the Portuguese elite division in 1990.
