Gil Vicente vs Braga
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estádio Cidade de Barcelos (Barcelos).
Gil Vicente is a new addition to this competition, but they made a statement right away in the first match-day, that they are not to be taken lightly. At home, in their opener, they provided the toughest of games for giants Porto, and delivered a loss as well, with the winner coming just 12 minutes from full time.
Though they lost their next game, the fear factor still remains. Now, they are taking on another titan of the tournament, Braga.
To make it more interesting, the guests of the day had defeated Moreirense in their opener, who in turn had dealt a loss to the newcomers just the last match-day.

Gil Vicente vs Braga Prediction
The surplus of experience that Braga holds over this opponent is a major factor while considering the outcome. Moreover, the guests were also one of the best in the league last campaign, and in fact, had qualified for Europe.
Moreover, they have always performed well against this opponent. They registered nine of the last ten h2h wins and scored twice or more in 12 of the former 13 clashes. In addition, Vicente had also failed to score in the previous two such encounters.
Finally, Gil seems to have lost the element of surprise, as they recorded a win against Porto in their opener. As such, Braga will be keen to avoid such a result and will tread carefully this Sunday.
With these in mind and the guests’ goal-scoring exploits, count on a terrific performance by them.
