Gil Vicente vs Boavista
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 22 September
Kick-off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Estádio Cidade de Barcelos (Barcelos).
Gil Vicente will be hosting Boavista in their fourth home match in the league. The newly-promoted team is unbeaten in home matches while the visiting troops have not lost any games in the league yet in this season.
The host will have to heavily lean on their home advantage to script out a win this weekend. And to be frank they really do not have an option regarding it, as the squad is already placed in the bottom-most tier of the league table.
Gil Vicente vs Boavista Head-to-head (h2h)

- The team that hosted the matches has only six of the fifteen wins since 1999.

Gil Vicente vs Boavista Prediction
The teams combined to score an average of 2.0 goals per match at this venue. Besides that, Boavista has scored a goal in all the league games in this season. Roosters have also scored goals in two of the three home matches in the new edition of the Primeira Liga. It can be noted that goals are present even though the total goal scoring is low. Hence, there may be more chances for a low scoring game with at least a couple of goals whatsoever.
Panthers are unbeaten in the league so far but so are the opponents at their home ground. The Roosters hosted this rival previously in 2015 and the spoils were shared by the teams. Moreover, the host did record the previous victory when they met here. Henceforth, with the current form favoring the visitor, one has to acknowledge the host also with their home advantage. As such, backing an outright win by the visitors might be risky, and the Double Chance arises as our safest bet.
