Gil Vicente vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction

Gil Vicente were on the road the last match-day, and had taken on Rio Ave. The tense affair saw the hosts narrowly edging it out with a 1-0 win.

Meanwhile, Guimaraes made good use of their home status the previous game week, as they recorded a 2-0 win over Portimonense.

However, the introduction of home advantage for Gil Vicente changes things this Sunday. The main reason being, they hold a 100% unbeaten record at home this league campaign, and to further strengthen this argument, Vitoria have a sole win on the road this whole Primeira Liga run.

In fact, Gil Vicente were unbeaten in 20 of their previous 24 home fixtures, and Guimaraes were winless in ten of their last twelve road trips.

Going on, Gil Vicente recorded three of the former five overall h2h wins, and home teams have registered six of the preceding seven such wins. Most importantly, at this venue, the guests have won just one h2h encounter since 2005, and all these factors combine together to pick out hosts Gil Vicente as favorites for this Sunday.
