It is relegation 6-pointer when Gil Vicente welcomes Belenenses SAD for Monday’s Portuguese Primeira Liga.
The hosts are 11th in the league after 11 rounds of football with 12 points in their bag while the visitors are 12th with 11 points to their name. Their gap with relegation zone is around 3 points, so both teams have an incentive to earn some points in this game.
Gil Vicente continued their mini revival last week after beating Famalicao away from home by a narrow 1-0 margin. This is only their third win of the season, but recent form looks good, as they picked 2 wins and a draw from last 4 with the exception of an expected loss to Benfica.
Belenenses are coming to this match on the back of consecutive defeats, 1-0 away at Maritimo and 2-1 at home to Sporting, a match they performed extremely well and unlucky to be on the losing side.
However, the team managed by Petit were unbeaten in 4 previous matches with a win and 3 draws.
Regarding the match odds, the bookies are considering Gil Vicente as favourites, but not by much and they are priced in the region of 2.15, while we can back the draw at 3.10 and away win at 3.60.
