Odds: 9/5 @ Bet 365

Looking to build off of what was a famous performance last weekend, European contenders Famalicao will make the trip to Gil Vicente on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, marking their return from the enforced break with a woeful 1-0 defeat away at relegation scrappers Portimonense, Gil Vicente appear to have started off where they finished in March. Continuing to show a string of issues in the second half of the season, Head Coach Vítor Oliveira has seen his side gain a reputation across the Primeira Liga for their issues on home soil. Freefalling down the table after opening the campaign with a shock European charge on their agenda, Gil Vicente have failed to win any of their last five appearances at the Estádio Cidade de Barcelos, a run highlighted by a 5-1 hammering against Moreirense prior to the break. Even more worrying for Oliveira’s men, Gilistas have recorded just a sole home victory since December 1st.

As for the visitors, marking their return to action with what was a spectacular 2-1 win against title chasers Porto, the mood in Famalicao’s camp should be at a real high. Sat just three points adrift of breaking into the top-four and within touching distance of securing what would be a famous campaign for João Pedro Sousa’s men, Famalicenses have collected seven points over their previous three Primeira Liga appearances. With a real opportunity to extend on their recent momentum, Famalicao should be excited by their stellar record against Tuesday’s hosts. Including picking up a 2-1 win when the two sides faced off earlier in the season, Sousa’s side have won their last six consecutive matchups against Gil Vicente.
