Sergio’s men lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Braga. It was their 13th winless game in a row, and also was their 19th winless match-up from the past 20 tries. Suffice it to say, this streak more than explains their contention for being relegated.
Elsewhere, the Roosters recorded a 1-1 draw at home against Santa Clara the past game week. It was a very valuable victory for the squad, as they managed to jump several spaces up in the table.
As things stand, the guests of the day are easily the favorites to post the three points on the table. They are placed much higher in the table, are in comparatively far better form, had won latest h2h clash at this venue as well as have recorded more h2h wins at this stadium than the hosts in the prior two decades, and finally have lost just against toppers Porto on the road in the last four months.
On the other hand, Sergio’s men are placed in the relegation zone, and need a surplus of seven points from the remaining ten match-days to escape the boot, while they themselves have so far secured a total of 16 points. They were also winless in 24 of their preceding 27 overall games, and at home, they have had a total of two wins this campaign.
One of the victories had come against a team from the lower division (League Cup), while the other had come against a recently promoted squad. As such, expect the Impressive Gil Vicente to post a win this Saturday at the Estádio Municipal de Portimão.
