Porto vs Gil Vicente
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: 27 February 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao (Porto).

Porto will be seriously tested on Sunday evening when they play host to in-form Gil Vicente in the most exciting game of Matchday No 24 in Primeira Liga.

The team led by Sergio Conceicao are cruising towards the title with a phenomenal record of 20 wins and 3 draws in 23 rounds so far in the competition.

It is enough for a healthy six-point advantage on the defending champions Sporting Lisbon at the top of the standings.

However, this gap could be reduced this weekend if Porto fail to beat Gil Vicente who are ready to offer them a massive challenge on Sunday night at Estadio Do Dragao.

Gil Vicente are enjoying one of the best campaigns in their history. They climbed to the sky-high fifth position in the Primeira Liga ladder after a streak of six wins and two draws in the previous eight outings.

Head coach Ricardo Soares is doing an amazing job with this clearly talented group of players. He has instilled the winning mentality into them.

The rock-solid defense is Gil Vicente’s main strength as the team allowed only 24 goals in 23 outings so far in the season.

Gil Vicente will travel to Estadio Do Dragao on the back of consecutive clean-sheet wins over Vizela and Belenenses in the last two rounds.

Can they keep their net untouched in the clash with the sovereign leaders, though?

Porto vs Gil Vicente Head-to-head

  • Porto have a brutal record of 18 wins in the last 18 home clashes against Gil Vicente.
  • Gil Vicente managed to find the back of the net only 5 times in the last 18 visits to Estadio Do Dragao.
  • Porto will also come into this on the back of five subsequent victories over Gil Vicente.

Porto vs Gil Vicente Prediction

The difference in quality between these two teams is notable and Porto are big favorites for the win for a reason. However, this match comes only three days after their tough UEFA Europa League clash against Lazio in Rome.

Also, since Gil Vicente won six and drew two of the last eight Primeira Liga affairs, we have to back the visitors not to lose by two or more goals difference at the 1.95 odds.
