Boavista vs Gil Vicente Prediction
Boavista were at the losing end for the second game on the trot after Sporting breezed past them on the road with a 2-0 scoreline. The hosts have now admitted defeat in half of their past six games in the top flight. They also have just three wins to boast of from their last ten.
Miserably, the back to back defeats have forced the home team to slump down the ladder, where they are now ninth with twenty-eight points to their name.
On the other hand, Gil Vicente were taken down by Benfica with a 1-0 scoreline in their last clash at home. The defeat subsequently brought their two-match unbeaten run to a close as well as marked their eighth defeat of the season.
Furthermore, to be frank, the visitors have looked vulnerable, the most, in their outings. As a matter of fact, six of the eight losses that they have recorded so far have come from their clashes on the road.
In sharp contrast, Boavista have salvaged a point at the least in seven of their past eleven games here. It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have secured the bragging rights in just one of their previous four trips to this stadium.
Hence, Gil Vicente are the underdogs to come out on top this weekend. Be that as it may, the guests have shared the spoils in three of their past five outings. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this clash had also ended as a tie, a draw no bet is sizing up to be the safest punt.
Additionally, goals have been hard to come by, more often than not, at this stadium. In fact, eight of the last eleven games here have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.
Moreover, scoring goals on the road has just not been Gil Vicente’s forte. Disappointingly, they have found the back of the net just nine times so far.
Given that six of the preceding nine h2h meetings here have also witnessed no more than a goal or two on the final scorecards, expect neither side to rack up the goals tally in this one.
