Santa Clara vs Gil Vicente
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Estádio de São Miguel (Ponta Delgada).
Gil Vicente is a new arrival into this competition. They did start on a great note, with a win against Porto, but it’s been downhill ever since. Disregarding that tie, the team has been winless in every other game this season, and they have managed a total of just three goals from their six fixtures so far.
Hosts Santa Clara, who’s fighting for a spot in the European section of the table, will be keen to get this match started. They have lost just twice this league run, and it had come against Porto and Famalicao.
At home, their sole defeat had come against the current table-toppers.

Santa Clara vs Gil Vicente Prediction
The Azoreans have lost just once in their last 13 appearances in front of the home crowd, and it had come against toppers Famalicao. On the contrary, their opposite number is winless in their prior seven fixtures on the trot, and in 11 of their last 14.
On the road, their most recent win had come the preceding season, and in fact, they even had failed to find the back of the net in the last two trips. Keep note that the team also conceded twice or more in every away tie this campaign.
Finally, h2h encounters too pick the hosts of the day as favorites.
Taking into account all these observations, rely on the home team to script out a win to post the three points on the board.
