Gil Vicente will host FC Porto in their first game after returning to Portuguese Primeira Liga.
Gil Vicente was able to get a place in the main league in a judicial decision, they were in 3rd division and got direct access to Primeira Liga after a court decision made after a several year process. They have a low ranked roster, with lack of experienced players in main leagues and it will be very hard for them to be able to keep themselves in Primeira. I see they will have a lot of problems to be able to score against a well-organized and good defensive team like FC Porto.
FC Porto has been doing a pre-season with a very good defensive performance and never allowed more than 1 goal per game. At the same time, they are struggling a bit to score goals, mainly because their best striker Marega is far from best form (he was in CAN this summer) and striker Aboubakar had a deep injury last season and will still need some more matches to achieve his best performances. FC Porto was also missing two main players from previous seasons, former captain Hector Herrera (went to Atletico Madrid) and creative midfielder Brahimi (left for Qatar), two main pieces for the team in several last seasons. FC Porto is also in the middle of the 3rd qualifying round of Champions League, having played in Russia against Krasnodar just yesterday (won 1-0 with a late goal) and with 2nd leg scheduled for next week I don´t expect them to be able to perform in this game at 100% yet.
In conclusion, I predict a win for FC Porto, with 1-0 or 2-0 as possible results, and I expect a slow pace match. If you also want to enjoy this odds don’t wait much and sign up for the best betting software now so you can seize your chance!
