Gil Vicente vs Benfica Prediction

Gil Vicente is not at their best in the league this season, but playing at home is their strongest suit in the campaign despite the results. The host has lost only two of their last ten home matches in the schedule and thus enjoys the ground advantage in the game.

Unbeaten in the last eight fixtures across all major competitions in the schedule, Benfica will come in hot with a two-game winning streak in the campaign. The away team has a decent form on the road and has scored a brace each in their last three outings including Europa League fixtures.

Based on these stats, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair in the match. Hence, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter. Besides, the away win in full-time will probably be the ideal choice to yield decent returns in the clash.
