Competition: Primera Liga
Market: Gil Vicente win
Odds: 11/10 @ BetUS
Hoping to find a route into the top-half of the Primera Liga table, Gil Vicente will welcome Vizela to the Estadio Cidade de Barcelos on Tuesday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, opening February in the midst of a recent blip, Gil Vicente will certainly be looking to claim a welcomed domestic boost here. Nevertheless, while the Roosters might have suffered back-to-back Primera Liga defeats for the first time since the start of September, Vitor Campelos’ side still have their sights set on securing a top-half finish in 2024. Opening the midweek fixtures sat just two points adrift of breaking back into Portugal’s top-nine, the Barceols-based outfit will be hugely excited by their continued success on home soil. Last seen at the Estadio Cidade de Barcelos putting in a gritty performance as they secured a 1-0 victory against Guimaraes, Gil Vicente are unbeaten in all of their previous nine domestic showdowns in front of their own supporters – a run that stems all the way back to August 26th. Likewise, suffering just a single home defeat over the past 10 months, the former Chaves boss should be smelling a potential opportunity here.
As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a nightmare Primeira Liga struggle this season, it is no secret that Vizela are tipped as a landslide relegation contender in 2024. Sat rock-bottom of the table and already seven points adrift of top-flight safety, Ruben de la Barrera’s men have certainly come under mounting pressure. Last seen getting hit with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Portuguese giants Benfica, the Brag-based outfit have lost all of their previous five appearances on the spin. With their extended crisis underlined by an infamous 5-0 drumming at the hands of Arouca on January 28th, Tuesday’s guests have also gained a real reputation for their glaring defensive issues. In fact, Vizela have shipped a remarkable 17 strikes on their five-match losing run. It should also be highlighted, the former Deportivo La Coruna boss has seen his struggling squad claim just a single Primera Liga victory since returning from November’s international break.
