Gil Vicente vs Moreirense Prediction
Gil Vicente were at the losing end of a 2-1 scorecard against FC Porto on the road last week. Despite taking the initial lead in that latter matchup, the hosts failed to keep their foes at bay and subsequently made the trip back home with just a consolation goal.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team have come away with the win just once in their past five fixtures in the top flight, garnering no more than six points from a possible fifteen. Nevertheless, Gil Vicente are still holding on to a spot in the top ten with twenty-two points in the bag.
On the other hand, Moreirense admitted their third defeat in four games in their most recent clash with Braga, that too at home. In all honesty, the visitors are yet to hit the ground running in their campaign, especially on the road.
Miserably, they are one among the only two teams that are yet to pick up a win in their outings. In sharp contrast, Gil Vicente are unbeaten at home so far and are the only side in the cluster to remain so.
As such, given the evident difference in form, Moreirense have little or chance of securing the bragging rights this weekend.
Furthermore, the hosts have scored more than two goals in just one of their previous nine fixtures here. Moreover, they have also been consistent in thwarting their foes from doing the same.
Impressively, six of the last nine top-flight games at this stadium have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.
Meanwhile, Moreirense’s frontline have been virtually invisible as of late on the road. The fact that they have found the back of the net just once in their past three outings certainly stands as a testament to the aforementioned.
Taking into account that their last h2h meeting here was also a low scoring affair, expect more of the same in this one as well.
