Portimonense vs Gil Vicente PredictionFollowing a lengthy three-month layoff from footballing action, the Portuguese Primeira Liga is back and better. The players are extremely excited by the prospect of getting back on the pitch and will be itching to return to action.
Match status: 2019/20 Primeira Liga - Matchweek 25
Kick-off:
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Portimão
Portimonense will be the side to get us rolling when they welcome ninth-placed Gil Vicente to the Estadio Municipal de Portimao on Wednesday evening for a crunch Primeira Liga clash. Both sides will be looking to mark their return with all three points in the bag.

However, they will be required to put their best foot forward to have any chances of clinching maximum points. The home side have fared terribly this campaign, struggling to string up positive results all season. 

Having garnered a measly 16 points from 24 games, they are deeply rooted in the drop-zone and are huge relegation candidates. In fact, they are one of the worst sides in the league - Deportivo Aves, the only team sporting a worse record than Paulo Sergio’s charges. 

With a game against mid-table outfit Gil Vicente on the cards, the home side will set their sights on staging an unlikely upset against the Gilistas. Portimonense will require lady luck on their side to stand any chances against this stubborn opposition.

Portimonense vs Gil Vicente Team News

Handed the impossible task of upsetting Europa League faithful Sporting Braga on the last match-day, Portimonense fared just as everyone expected. They remained on the backfoot for large portions of the game and never really got going. 

Sporting Braga, playing in front of the home support, grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck, firing in two quick-fire goals very early in the game. Portimonense tried responding by hurting the home side on the break severally. However, their impotent attacking frontline let them down as they just couldn’t find a route back into the game.

Ultimately, the score-board read 0-2 at the end of the first period. Following the restart, both sides seemed blunt and failed to muster any major openings. Either side grabbing a goal in the second-half, Portimonense were condemned to a humiliating 1-3 defeat at the sound of the final whistle.

Gil Vicente, on the other hand, played out a drab one-all home draw against tenth-placed Santa Clara last time out. Both sides equally matched throughout the game, the final score-line looked a good reflection of the manner in which the game had panned out.

For this fixture, a number of factors are likely to come into play in determining which side comes out on top. It goes without saying that either side had endured a dip in form over the last few games, failing to produce impressive performances and results.

However, despite the away handicap, the visitors have to be considered favorites for the win. They are sporting a whopping 14 point-difference over Paulo Sergio’s men on the standings. Also, the home side have secured the win only twice from their 24 league games.

To pile on the misery, Portimonense have been appalling when it comes to h2h encounters against Gil Vicente. They have admitted three defeats from their previous five games against the Roosters on this ground.

Portimonense vs Gil Vicente Predictions

Ordinarily, Gil Vicente can easily be trusted to clinch maximum points against this opposition. However, with the unexpected coronavirus break, we do not know what to expect from both sides. Some top players might struggle to reach their impressive heights, given they haven’t been on the pitch for over two months now. As such, a low-scoring affair is expected between these two sides. The double chance market, in favour of Gil Vicente seems the safest punt.
