Sporting CP vs Gil Vicente
Portugal- Primeira Liga
Date: Tuesday, 1 July 2020
Kick-Off at 21:15 UK/ 22:15 CET
Venue: Estádio José Alvalade (Lisbon).
The Lions are third in the points table after 28 rounds are completed. They are on a three-match winning streak but have a long gap between them and the top two teams.
Sporting have a good attacking record like always, but the defence need to better their play. Along with Braga they have lost eight matches so far which is the most among top five teams.
With Gil Vicente losing their away games in recent weeks, this may turn out to be a one-sided affair this Wednesday.

- Sporting has four wins and a defeat in five previous meetings against this opposition.
- They have kept a clean sheet in all four of those matches.
- The common score in three of those five games was 2-0.
- The hosts have a three-match winning streak going on here against Gil Vicente.
- They have won four and lost once in five previous head to head matches at this ground.

Sporting vs Gil Vicente: Prediction
Sporting is the second-best home team after FC Porto. They have won 10 and lost 4 of the 14 home games this season. With a six-match winning streak going on here, the Roosters will need to do something special to stop them.
But after the two consecutive wins against Boavista and Setubal they are currently on a two-game losing streak in away match. In the light of the above facts and the head to head history, I am backing the home team to get all three points on Wednesday.
Sporting has kept a clean sheet in all four latest home games. With these included they have 6 clean sheets in 9 previous home fixtures. They also prevented Gil Vicente from scoring in three recent head to head matches. So, I am backing the home team to win with only one side scoring.
